Congratulations on your new Tandem Island! I made the same decision as you did and passed up on the 2011 TI that was sitting out in the brutal Maui sunshine. I ended up buying a new 2012 ivory dune TI from Windward boats on Oahu last month. Lets meet up sometime and do some sailing.

Could somebody please clarify. How long has the 2012 been available? Are we looking at the 2013 release soon.. In other words was the 2012 available in 2011 and will the 2013 be available in 2012? I'm confused on what model year to buy if I want the latest and greatest.

Always in the Fall, each year. They're announced at the trade show (I forget it's name) then the new (or updated) products hit the stores as supplies become available and orders are placed. Some minor model changes can happen quietly anytime during the year.

So, the 2012 are here but the 2013 won't show till after next summer.

Windward boats rocks, just placed an order for a TI. The staff there was very helpful!

That's the first time I've spotted this mod. Makes sense though.
