Just curious. Browsing the web, came across some nice Hobie pics. I like the look of the boat too, with no boom, and what looks like a dedicated wear strip on keel.
I don't know this model though. They seem to be in Cuba

They have a litter of them

It's a Hobie 15, a European model not generally available in North America:

Thanks, sorry to hear it's not available here. I do like the look of it. Must make sure if I ever go to a resort down there, they have Hobie cats.

You will find many H15´s in places like Antigua, Cuba and other Caribbean resorts,
especially those islands with a 'connection' to Europe.
Plus they are common in many sail clubs and resorts in Europe.
We sailed them in Antigua, fun, high volume hulls, simple rig, can take four adults,
and the feel/response/performance is good.
Think of them as a training or resort boat.

Sailed a Wave today off the beach, south of Cancun....
