The catamaran that started a revolution, the Hobie 16 is still the most recognizable and iconic fiberglass catamaran. With over 100,000 built, the 16 expanded the worlds’ view on what fast, beach launched fun could be like. The Hobie 16 came out in the 1970s and yet is still raced around the world and up and down the west coast. New 16s come equipped ready to go fast right out of the box -Dacron sails, carbon-fiber rudders and double trapeze are included. The durable fiberglass hulls are timeless -they are light and stiff, ensuring years of speed and dependability. The Hobie 16 still offers fleet numbers larger than any other fiberglass catamarans. New 16s continue to be sold and add to the fleet fun, coast to coast and worldwide.

The Hobie 18 was designed to be not only fast but also rugged. It is designed to be sailed by a crew of two,but can easily carry four passengers when cruising. Experienced sailors can sail the Hobie 18 solo. Unlike the smaller Hobie 14 and 16, the Hobie 18 uses a symmetrical hull design. Although this design gives the 18 a speed advantage, it requires the use of daggerboards when sailing close-hauled or reaching to prevent slipping. The typical configuration for the Hobie 18 is with both a main sail and a jib. The jib on the 18 is set up on a rolling/furling system that wraps the jib around the forestay when it isn't needed.
