Hobie wave or getaway


Recommended Posts

For leisure sailing the Getaway is brilliant, it's big, has plenty of bouyancy, will carry six adults comfortably and most imprtantly it has twin Eskies to keep ya tinnies cold. It's a very pleasant and forgiving boat to sail, the only thing that I would rate on the minus side is it's weight, it tips the scales at about 377 lbs. The boomless mainsail is a bonus as you don't get hit on the head by a boom, the furling jib is great for quickly reducing sail area should you need to do that. I once towed a broken down stink boat for about six or seven kilometres with mine which is abit of a reversal to whar normally happens.

The Wave is a great little boat if you are going to be mainly sailing on your own or with kids. Both are nearly bullet proof in terms of construction strength.

Yeah, I'd buy another one ... Harry
