The Hobie 16 provides high-performance sailing as a sporty thrill machine that has introduced a myriad of sailors to evolving apparent-wind angles and multi-hull fun!
Working Sail Area : 218.00 sq ft
The Hobie 16 catamaran is far and away the world's most popular multihull. It's easy to sail, loaded for bear and able to satisfy even the most demanding sailors. Over 100,000 sailors, racers and fun seekers alike, have enjoyed the excitement of sailing in the largest, most competitive catamaran class in the world. The 16 is so popular because it uses the simplicity of the 14 and combines it with the performance features of a much larger catamaran. That means power and performance enough to challenge veterans. And fun enough to turn on a novice to the excitement of sailing.
