Selling on behalf of owner, Boat is located on Portland Island, Dorset:
Due to a new sailing project arising this coming season, I have to sell my excellent and barely used 18’6ft Hobie two seater trimaran, possibly the most versatile, adaptive and eco-friendly water craft there is. With up to 12 knots Sailing speed, rowing, human powered mirage drive with reverse and an (optional) solar-electric motor as your power choices. This unique trimaran has only been used just Ten times locally since new. It is currently stored in its own shed unused since Aug 2018 with regular maintenance and comes with:
1: Hobie trampoline set for laying out on the outriggers andideal for carrying your kids, pets, camping gear, fishing gear etc ( rated 200ib per tramp max)
2: Hobie beach cart – full boat width (can sit on trampolines and go with you for beaching/launching boat anywhere if required)
2: Second Brand New Hobie beach dolly still in packaging (full boat-width) complete with axle/handle etc.
3: Set of Hobie Tuff Tyres for Hobie beach cart ( for hard ground beaching/launch use like ramps, stoney beachs)
4: Brand new set of Wheeleez Balloon sand tyres for Hobie beach cart ( for launching/landing on sandy beaches)
5: Lowrance Elite 7 T.I chartplotter/sonar (with all latest firmware updates Including the new and improved downscan and sidescan imaging) Also has WIFI for updates/internet etc and for cloning thescreen/controlling the unit on a tablet or phone at the same time, ideal for passengers to share areal-time view of the screen themselves (free Gofree app required) All installed by Hobie dealer when new.

13: Bespoke official Hobie LT road trailer that works in conjunction with the beach cart for super fast and easy loading/unloading. Trailer only used for three 3 mile trips only and has never touched salt water.
14: Two spare rudder pins

17: Spare brand new set of grey foam pads for the boat width beach dolly.
18: Brand new unused spare wheel and tyre for Hobie road trailer. 19: Two Hobie paddles (two part form for easy transport and storage)
It has all receipts, owners pack etc and I paid around £10.5k for it. So save yourself thousands and still have app 9 months of transferable Hobie warranty avaliable for peace of mind for the upcoming season if you buy now.
As this is a new 2018 model it has the highly useful MD180 mirage drives with reverse, a game changer for manouvering in my opinion, italso has the latest improvements like furling guard to stop line snags and updated MK2 fin design etc.
Please see the Youtube channel, “Ian Sailing” for (360deg) video clips of the trips it has had.
