About Us "The Cat That Flies" February 6, 1970 Maximimum fun, minimal drag— for us, that’s always been the program, both from a boat-design perspective and as a guiding philosophy. It’s hard to imagine a more graceful synergy between people, nature and technology than sailing, an art that tests a sailor’s ability to work with the wind, the waves and his sails to smoothly flow through air and water. The iconography and the romance of the sport are easy to fall in love with, but—until a few decades ago—yacht clubs, spendy marinas and huge operating budgets served as barriers to access,...

testing, breaking and fixing their prototype, the company unveiled the Hobie 14 in 1968. While the 14-footer was an international hit, Alter soon began considering a bigger, two-person catamaran with even higher performance attributes than his first design. The result, the Hobie 16—one of the world’s best-loved sailboats—was loosed on Southern California in 1970. Virtually overnight, high-performance sailing became accessible for everyone—not just the wealthy. A lifestyle centering on Hobie-organized regattas and beach parties emerged, and the term, “Have a Hobie Day” went mainstream. By...

Simple, safe and fun, the Hobie Bravo’s stable design and bombproof construction make it ideal for sailors of all skill levels, from the junior making his or her first solo tacks to the racecourse ace enjoying a breezy-day joyride. The boat’s rotomolded polyethylene hull encourages beaching and makes docking—even on gusty days—consequence-free. The Bravo’s generously cut, square-top mainsail captures mere zephyrs, yet automatically sloughs-off air pressure when the puffs hit. The unique A-frame mast support is easy to step, and the boomless, roller-furling, multicolored Dacron mainsail...

Looking for a do-everything, go-everywhere family sailing cat that’s safe and dependable for the juniors, yet also entertaining for mom and dad? If so, the Hobie Wave is ready to play. Its asymmetrical underbody shape eliminates the need for daggerboards, and its rotomolded polyethylene hulls are virtually indestructible. A large, fully battened, boomless mainsail provides plenty of power in the light stuff, but twists off in a breeze for added control. Enjoyed solo or with friends, the Wave is also available as the Wave Club edition, ideal for schools, organizations or resorts. Seabreeze...

Rotomolded Series Seabreeze Few experiences beat an afternoon spent sailing with friends and family…except maybe if it’s spent on a fast, nimble catamaran that’s big enough to accommodate the whole crew. Unlike “party boats” that are better at floating around than footing off, the Getaway has serious sailing legs thanks to its powerful, mainsail-driven sailplan and its asymmetrically shaped underbody. With the Getaway, there’s no worry about beaching or “dock bites”; its rotomolded hull is super-durable and impact-resistant. But most impressive is the Getaway’s awesome value—expect years’...
