Hobie’s original Pro Angler packs extreme fishing utility, with scads of (that’s six) horizontal rod lockers, enough tackle compartments to empty a store, and an elevated Vantage ST seat that’s as much easy chair as captain’s perch.
There’s a non-skid deck for standing—a huge advantage for sight fishing—and veritable acres of H-Rail for mounting rod holders and electronics. All this on a spacious 14-foot platform, with no need for a gas tank. Hobie’s unique MirageDrive with Glide Technology provides efficient, quiet propulsion.
Powered by MirageDrive 180 Turbo Fins
The ungainly paddle is replaced by the sheer efficiency of the MirageDrive 180, the original pedal kayak drive. With the largest human muscle group now in play, kayaking becomes easier and more efficient than ever.
Vantage ST Seating
Vantage Seating provides ultimate comfort and adjustability in a lightweight, easily removable form, along with Boa® system lumbar support technology.
Derrières everywhere rejoice. The Vantage Seating system provides the comfort needed for long stretches out on the water. The seat-back, bottom, height, and lumbar-support are all easily adjustable.
For extra visibility, the Vantage Seat can be adjusted into a position five inches higher than the standard position.
Guardian Retractable Transducer Shield
Retractable Shield protects transducer on impact and retracts away for transport. Built-in transducer mount allows side scanning for optimal fishfinder performance. Pre-installed thru-hull cable plugs allow quick, no-drill, no-glue fishfinder installation. ALL NEW for 2019.
The all-new Hobie H-Rail system's extruded aluminum dodecagon rail provides a strong and corrosion resistant mounting platform to effortlessly mount more gear in more places.
2 - H-Rail Mounting Plates
Provide a solid and easy-to-reach platform for installing accessories like fishfinders, rod holders, cameras and the H-bar. Now with an integrated track system, knife holder, plier holder and leash points.
Stability and Performance
The Pro Angler 12's tri-hull design improves stability by increasing floatation at the edges of the beam. Structural ribs run the length of the boat, stiffening the hull, while the hull's rounded profile reduces resistance for a quieter, faster ride.
Front Hatch with Removable Liner
Large-opening storage area offers easy access for storing fish or ice and can be removed for cleaning.
Anchor Trolley System Ready
Brass inserts strategically placed fore and aft on the sides of the hull, ready to install an optional anchor trolley kit, for anchor, drift chute, or stakeout pole.
Large Twist and Seal Hatch with TMS
A rectangular hatch just in front of the seat conceals a mesh storage pocket and pivoting storage for two medium-sized Plano® tackle boxes (included). The storage area under the tackle boxes is also easily accessible.
Rear Cargo Area
Big adventures demand plenty of gear. These molded areas and Bungee® tie-downs ensure that it's still there when you get to camp.
The optional Mirage Sail Kit's mast securely steps onto a deck-mounted fitting. Enjoy added power without complication; Mirage Sail Kits make sailing fun and easy.
Lowrance® Ready System
The Hobie Mirage Sport comes standard with a built-in transducer mount and pre-installed through-hull cable plugs.
Two-Piece Paddle w/T-Handle
Negotiate surf-strewn beaches and rocky inlets with additional confidence or go old school and paddle for an upper body workout. Conveniently clips onto the hull when not needed. Attach the T-Handle for stand-up paddling.
8" Twist and Seal Hatch
An efficient corkscrew mechanism ratchets down this hatch, keeping stowed items secure irrespective of the sea state. The lid is permanently attached to its base via a hinge, so you don't have to worry about leaving it at last night's campground.
2 - Rod Holders
These molded-in holsters securely tote your rods, are perfectly angled for trolling and can accommodate a gaff, nets and other gear.
Horizontal Rod Storage for 6 Rods
Protect your rod tips. Hobie’s horizontal rod holders keep your rods out of the way.
Primary and secondary steering handles allow the boat to be steered from either the port or starboard sides of the boat.
