Hobie 16, 1979
I have decided to sell my 1979 Hobie 16 in order to fund the purchase of another boat. I regret having to list her for sale as we've shared some great times.
This boat is an IDEAL starter Hobie and I highly recommend this as a first catamaran or intro to cat sailing.
She is set up with a double trapeze, and I have a bunch of extra little parts I've accumulated over the years that you can have too.
The hulls have been fitted with port holes forward of the front pylons to keep them dry, but there are some dings and scratches in the gelcoat and some spider cracks as well in the hulls, pretty typical for the age though.
The trampoline has a tear along the back which I would recommend replacing. It does not affect the sailing, but is more of a nuisance. I had it repaired at a canvas shop.
I will include two Hobie PFD's in the sale and can sell you two trapeze harnesses for a little extra.
The trailer is in excellent condition and worth $$$ and I've had offers for just the trailer but I'd hate to separate the two, so it includes the trailer. The left turn signal went out unexpectedly the other day but thats an easy fix.
Thanks for looking,
