Hobie 16

6 Seasons

Introduced as the bigger Hobie 14, the 16 revolutionized the multihull scene when it first appeared in 1971. Forty plus years later, this boat continues to attract great sailors. Powerful enough for the world champion, yet forgiving enough for the novice, the 16 can be characterized as the Laser of the catamaran world. It’s a dual trapeze boat for two or more crew that can be sailed in strong winds.
