Catamarans

Hobie Catamaran Hire

Hire a Hobie Russell Bay of Islands NZ

We have 14ft Hobie catamarans for hire  so if you love to sail or are  just beginning your water sailing adventures then these Hobie’s are great fun,  very stable and easy to sail catamaran. 

If your a little rusty or haven’t sailed before then add a lesson for $25 and then go out on the water with more confidence. Our low cost hire dry bag hire  will keep your mobile phone, camera and other valuables dry.

Hobie 14 catamarans are suited for one or two adults or one adult and perhaps a couple of small children. They are light, just fast enough and stable yet still fun and challenging; especially when the wind is up. Some might say for these are for the brave hearted but you can always have to go high speed or do you? Slow down and just enjoy the ride.

In and around the bay in front of Russell is an ideal harbour for sailing in most wind directions. During our warm the summer months the morning winds tend to be South East and light. In the afternoon nice off shore breezes kick in mostly from the north east. The occasional on shore westerly wind whilst rare can make it a little choppy and let’s say “a little interesting” for sailing. Don’t Pitch Pole! 

Our Hobie 14 catamaran range are the Turbo models which have jibs that vasty improve speed and response time, stability and your overall sailing experience. 

You can always improve your sailing understanding by combining lessons and sailing over a few days. Ask us how we can tailor this for you.
