Hobie Wild Cat
The Wild Cat is Hobie’s next generation extreme racing machine and current Formula 18 design. Introduced in January 2009, the Wild Cat ultimately replaced the Hobie Tiger. Designed by renowned fluid dynamics expert Dr. Martin Fischer (designer of the Capricorn F18, A Class catamarans and America’s Cup 45 collaborator) and manufactured by Hobie Cat Europe, the Wild Cat incorporates the latest in Formula 18 design philosophies.
The Hobie Wild Cat includes: wave piercing and planing hulls; distinctive hull strakes to reduce friction and increase speed in moderate to heavy winds; a shallow V-shaped keel rocker; longer, high aspect ratio carbon daggerboard and rudder foils and all-aluminum wing mast.
