The Hobie 21 Sport Cruiser is the go-anywhere boat, sail, motor, and even portage, if necessary. It is the ideal beach cruising and camping catamaran. It takes you where you want to go ... through remote inlets and secluded waterways; the way you want to go ... by sail, motor and even portage, if necessary. The Cat Cabin pod has 20 cubic feet of storage with anchor locker in stay-dry compartments that welcome even cumbersome gear and feature easy-access, sealed hatches. A 68-quart marine-grade cooler straps securely to the Cat Cabin and functions as a handy tabletop. Stretching across the entire beam, the cabin acts like a dodger to protect against wind and spray. There is also 15 cubic feet of storage in the hulls. With the mast-stepper, one person can step the mast quickly and easily using the gin pole and mainsheet system. In case you take a dip, the mast float will help prevent turtling. The boat, resting on its side, is easier to right. Wing it on comfortable bench-like seats that double as backrests. Stay drier, and still savor the excitement of trapezing from the wings. High boom clearance allows plenty of headroom, easier maneuverability and more deck space for easy, safe transitions when tacking or gybing. Reduced spray is guaranteed with the new one-piece solid vinyl trampoline. Lines remain on the boat and out of the water with a rear crossbar that also acts as a backstop. The roller furling jib quickly reduces sail area and storage time. No jib setup means fast launching the next time around. Beaching is easy, with kick-up rudders and centerboards that self-retract to ensure safe shallow-water sailing. The convenient beach track slide makes pulling the boat onto the beach a snap, then rolls up for easy hull storage.
