Hobie 14 with yellow hulls and white sail. Includes trailer, mast float and righting cords. Features appreciated by the experienced sailor and novice alike:
ASYMMETRICAL HULLS / Developed by Hobie and refined to provide sailing efficiency and speed without leeway. Eliminates the necessity for center boards. The most copied catamaran design on the market. Enjoy worry- free sailing through kelp, grass and shallow waters.
CONTROLLABLE KICK UP RUDDERS / An exclusive Hobie design that allows positive raising and lowering of rudders by the tiller handle. No need to set rudders by hand. Rudders automatically kick up when beaching.
EASY TO SAIL / Excellent performance and maneuver- ability even in the hands of the novice sailor, with refinements that are truly appreciated by the sophisticated sailor. Safe, with built-in positive flotation hulls and buoyant mast, it can be righted easily.
SAIL ANYWHERE / Shallow draft and lack of center board lets you sail in barely 8 inches of water. This enables you to sail in shallow lakes, bays, inlets, in the surf, or right up on the beach.
EASY HANDLING / No crew needed. Basically a one man show, but company is fun! Large trampoline wing has ample room for several passengers. Easily righted by one person.
LIGHTWEIGHT / Total weight fully rigged with sail is approximately 225 pounds. Light enough for one person to move about easily. When disassembled no single part weighs over 65 pounds.
STRONG AND MAINTENANCE FREE / Molded fiberglass hulls with vacuum high-density foam sandwich throughout. The strongest lightweight boat construction used to date. Aluminum is dip coated or anodized for all use protection.
INSTANTLY TRAILERABLE / No disassembly. Just release one pin to drop mast and go!
EASY STORING / Remove four bolts. Hulls, wing, mast, boom and rudders disassemble to occupy a surprisingly small amount of space for storing in garage or basement.

This boat is rigged for racing. The mast has a comp tip. New mainsheet and mainsheet blocks. Hobie 20 tiller/rudder connections. Tightened trampoline. New main sail. Trailer with cat box. There is way more money into this boat then the asking price. Call 760.445.0632 to have a look at it.
