Notes

The first Hobie Cat and one of the most popular catamarans ever, though soon eclipsed in sheer numbers by the even more successful HOBIE 16.
A TURBO version added a jib. (Total SA: 148 sq. ft./13.75m2.)
Discontinued for sale in the US in 2004.
Production continued in Europe for a few more years.
