CLASSIC COOL BOAT DESIGNS – Iconic. The Hobie 16 revolutionized multihull sailing and defined its culture when she hit the California beach scene in 1969. Now, over forty years later, this Sailboat Hall of Fame inductee continually attracts great sailors and delivers serious adrenaline rushes worldwide.
Why? Because the Hobie 16 is the perfect cat, powerful enough for world champions yet forgiving enough for novices. Its dual-trapeze rig helps you and your crew member tame the high-powered sailplan, and its asymmetrically shaped fiberglass hulls reduce weight and eliminate the need for daggerboards. Seriously fast, seriously fun — fly a hull and the obsession begins! Just ask any modern day America’s Cup racer!
