    This is a very nice boat for day sailing. It is a monohull catamaran (single solid fiberglass deck with small hulls on either side). It is very fast, handles well and turns easier than a catamaran. It carries about 30% more sail than a standard sailboat of its size, so it can be exciting to be on the lake even in a light wind. It carries up to about 300 pounds nicely.

    Learn how to sail without breaking your budget and it doesn’t burn any gas.

    A few hairline cracks in the deck. Hull is very good. Sail, mast and boom are in excellent condition. Rudder, tiller and centerboard included. Needs vinyl trim molding (about $6), a new centerboard cleat and a few other bits. All can be purchased at West Marine, Camping World, on-line or Ebay. Needs TLC and a good cleaning up.

    I am including the Hobie 12 assembly and set-up instruction manual on a CD, which also includes other Monocat literature.
