Simplicity defined, its time-tested MirageDrive pedal system with Glide Technology moves you easily through the water. Outfitted with a breathable mesh seat, the Compass offers maximum stability and an oversized cockpit and flat deck for standing. A sharp turning radius makes it nimble in tight quarters, yet able to speed over open water in stealthy fashion.
With a wide range of models and sizes available to anglers, Hobie’s gurus designed the Compass to be a boat for everyman. The convenient 12-foot water line, 34-inch beam and 68-pound weight make the Compass a perfect fit for any water way and any lifestyle. A sub-2K price tag makes the Compass perfect fit for any budget, too. Hobie mixed design features from their most popular boats. The Compass has an aggressive, pointed bow to cut through waves and cleave the water. At just one inch wider than the Outback, the boat maneuvers like the original favorite. The stern is wide like a Pro Angler and a pontooned hull increase stability for a rock-solid fishing platform.
Fishing features include molded-in rod holders, H-Track accessory mounts and a transducer cavity ready for you to install a Lowrance® fishfinder.
