Catamarans

 

Hobie Catamaran

Owning a Hobie Cat means more than owning a sailboat.

Over the last 40 years, more people have experienced the benefits of a Hobie catamaran than almost any other sailboat design. Over 100,000 Hobie Cats are sailing around the world in huge Hobie fleets and regattas.

With both rotomolded and fiberglass designs available, every sailor in Adelaide can find the perfect model for their needs at Binks Marine. Hobie’s rotomolded cats are incredibly durable yet designed to deliver the best performance. There’s a model for all skill levels. Their fibreglass catamarans can be launched right from the beach and they revolutionised sailing. They need to be seen to be believed!

Through the social and racing activities of Hobie fleets, members have an opportunity to participate in activities designed to enhance the quality of their recreational time, and to contribute to a spirit of friendship that has graced the sport of Hobie Cat sailing since 1967. Sailors everywhere have come to call this unique affinity "The Hobie Way of Life".

Join a community passionate about high quality equipment and amazing experiences. Find out more about the Hobie cats available at Adelaide’s Binks Marine.
