Hobie’s wind-loving, pedal-driven tandem kayak

A recent issue of Sail Magazine featured a very favorable write-up of the Hobie Mirage Tandem IslandThis remarkable kayak is the flagship of Hobie’s Mirage Drive series and features two unique Hobie technologies.  First is the revolutionary MirageDrive pedal drive system that allows easy, efficient hands-free kayaking.  In this configuration, the Tandem Island is a super-fast two person kayak with loads of cargo space.  However, if you fit the boat with the included 90 sq/ft sail and 18 ft. carbon-fiber mast along with the retracting, removable aka crossbeams and ama floats, it transforms into a swift, stable wind-loving trimaran.  The video below shows the boat’s performance in 20+ knot winds:
