~Mirage Tandem Island
Grab a partner and enjoy the ride on a Tandem Island. The puff hits and the Hobie Mirage Tandem Islandâs leeward ama chisels into the water, its efficient, square-topped mainsail immediately translating increased wind speed into extra boat speed.
The Tandem Islandâs two-piece carbon-fiber rig minimizes weight aloftâthus stiffening the rideâand both cockpits are fitted with steerage and sail-handling controls, allowing sailors of all abilities to share the experience. Best yet, the crossbars, amas, akas and rig are easily stripped, converting the Tandem Islandâs rotomolded polyethylene hull into a highly efficient, pedal-or paddle-powered touring kayak with enough hatches and on-deck stowage for multi-day escapes.
