The Hobie Wave is an easy- to-sail, easy-to-rig speedster that will have you smiling. Fun for the family and exciting for the juniors while forgiving enough for the newly initiated, the Hobie Wave is the ideal must-go-sailing-now catamaran.


The symmetrically shaped hulls and keel design provide lift while eliminating the need for daggerboards, and its rotomolded polyethylene construction is nearly indestructible. Equipped with thoughtful features including a comptip mast and Hobie Bob mast float to prevent turtling if capsized. A large, fully-battened, boomless mainsail is powerful in the light stuff, but is designed to reduce power in an unexpected gust. The three-piece mesh trampoline is heat melded for the ultimate in longevity, has two main sections and is simple to adjust.

Hobie Wave

The minimal-maintenance Wave has earned its reputation as a fun and versatile beach cat thanks to its impressive buoyancy. While the Wave makes for a great social platform, it’s also a sporty, performance-minded catamaran that boasts symmetrically shaped keels that create lift, without the need for daggerboards. The boat’s rotomolded polyethylene hulls are safe, sturdy and encourage island exploration, while its sailplan can tackle everything from light airs to days when the wind is blowing dogs off chains. Additionally, the Wave stands ready to serve schools, resorts or charter fleets.
