Hobie has always been justifiably known as a high-end kayak brand, but in recent years has come up with some lower priced models to appeal to a broader audience. The Mirage Passport 12 really sets a mark for Hobie in value-pricing. Sport kayakers will love the nimble tracking, stability and roominess. Color options include classic Slate Blue and Seagrass Green. The Passport 12 has a transducer cavity and scupper for simple install of your favorite fishfinder. All this on top of a Power-Pole Micro bracket indent to mount your favorite shallow water anchor. Additional features include steering system with stowable rudder, two fishing rod holders, accessory tracks, and under seat and gunnel tackle storage.
Some of the specs on this new model include:
Length 12' / 3.6 m
Width 34" / 0.86 m
Capacity 400 lbs. / 181.44 kg
Fitted Hull Weight 73 lbs. / 33.11 kg
Fully Rigged Weight 83 lbs. / 37.65 kg
Priced right, stable, quick through the water and full Hobie quality and warranties - it's hard to beat, but for something more compact and a hair lighter, check out the Passport 105
- similar feature set at a lower price still. For simpler up-and-down rudder control, add the Passport rudder upgrade
