The most recognizable and iconic catamaran in the world with over 100,000 built. The Hobie 16 revolutionized multihull sailing in 1970 and continues to thrill today. Ready to race with dacron sails, carbon-fiber rudder blades, and a double trapeze, the Hobie 16 remains an active race and recreational catamaran. The durable fiberglass hulls are light and stiff, ensuring years of speed and dependability. The Hobie 16 offers a competitive edge in one design performance not found in other catamarans.
