Hobie Mirage Outback Celebrates 15th Birthday With Special Edition

Posted by Rhys Sharp on

After Hobie changed their entire Mirage Drive kayak line with the addition of an adjustable, structured seat last year at ICAST, we weren't expecting a big announcement from them at this year's show. We definitely did not expect a limited edition boat to be debuted. Here's the official press release from Hobie:

Oceanside, California, July 15, 2015 - Starting November 2015, a new orange Hobie® will be seen

on waterways around the world but there will not be many of them. In celebration of the 15th

birthday of Hobie’s iconic Mirage® Outback, a limited edition model with visually distinct special

features will be introduced at ICAST...the Hobie Mirage Outback Limited Edition. Each of them will

be individually numbered one to 500. The Outback, Hobie’s first boat with molded-in rod holders, is

what kicked off Hobie’s entry into the kayak fishing market and is now being used by anglers across

the globe.

Over the past 15 years, the 12’ Outback has medalled consistently on the sales floor and in

tournaments while bringing sheer enjoyment to thousands of anglers. With increasingly more units in

use every day, a celebration is well deserved. The Mirage Outbcack Limited Edition model combines

the well-proven features of the current Mirage Outback (utility, speed and stability) with MirageDrive

Turbo fins, an oversized rudder, hookless map pockets, custom on-deck EVA pad kit and large

padeyes for attaching accessories in the cargo area. And then there is the visual look. The new

custom orange color will not fail to solicit attention. Molded-in graphics subtly depicting fish species

from all over the world and contrast color and logo stitching on the Vantage CT seat complete the

picture.

With only 500 of these being produced, we are only going to get ONE at Liquid Surf and Sail in Fort Walton Beach. The release date isn't until November, but we're sure this boat will be scooped up well before then. Call us at the shop 850.664.5731 today if you would like to have the only one in Fort Walton Beach!!!
