Welcome to Hobie Class UK
Why the Hobie 16?
There are more Hobie 16s in the world than any other catamaran with over 117,000 having been manufactured over the last 40 years.
Class Racing and not cheque book racing – thanks to Hobie’s strong one design rules allowing everyone accesses to the same potential. Class racing on a Hobie is fun and fair and a well sailed Hobie that is a few years old can be as competitive as a new boat in the right hands. This helps provide a cheap entry point for youth and families to get involved.
