A passport can take you wherever you want to go… as long as you can afford to support your adventurous aspirations. Money doesn’t have to be the problem. Hobie provides its own special brand of recreation and adventure and they offers an ideal solution to the money problems.
The latest addition to Hobie’s fun fleet of exciting, pedal-driven watercraft – the new Mirage Passport 12 – is available now at Hobie dealers near you. The feature rich value in the Mirage Passport 12 takes anglers and other adventure seekers where they want to go. All with world-class Hobie performance. Best of all, it does it at an appealing price point.
Building on the very successful launch of the Hobie Passport 10.5 earlier this year, the new Mirage Passport 12 is longer and larger with a more fishing-centric Passport. The Hobie Passport is available in Slate Blue or Seagrass Green and is powered by the original MirageDrive® Classic with ST Fins, this highly manageable 12-foot kayak offers anglers a great combination of features along with affordability.
The features begin with tried-and-true, legendary MirageDrive pedal performance for hands-free propulsion and a smooth and efficient cruising kayak. Passport 12’s added length solves a host of angling situations. The extra width provides great stability while sitting or standing and its Suspended Mesh Aluminum Frame Seat is comfortable and lightweight. Its EVA Padded Standing Platform accommodates comfortable standing while casting on the redesigned cockpit. For additional safety while standing, Passport 12 is H-Bar-ready and offers two forward recesses. This provides the perfect placement for simple H-Bar setup.
Passport 12 makes it easy for anglers to access and stow the gear needed for a great day on the water. There’s an 8” Twist and Seal Hatch right in front of the seat. This provides quick access to a large and secure in-hull storage. The bow offers additional cavity storage with Bungee® and optional Twist and Seal Hatch for more below-deck stowage. In front of the seat, both left and right there is two recesses with Bungee closures that helps keep tackle boxes and other needed items close at hand. Two built-in rod caddies keep rods within easy reach behind the seat.
Accessorizing the Hobie Passport 12 is easy. It comes complete with Accessory H-Track Mounts for near-infinite mounting options. Phones, fishing electronics, action cameras or similar items are easy to mount. A Forward Accessory Mount accepts the Hobie Mirage Sail Kit of Bimini Sunshade, and a handy transducer cavity and mounting plate make transducer mounting simple and clean. Behind the seat, Passport 12 provides ample deck space to accommodate an H-Crate for additional rod and tackle storage. There is a recessed mounting surface to quickly install a Power-Pole anchor system for holding on those hot fishing spots.
Easy to transport and store, every Passport 12 comes complete with an aluminum two-piece paddle to negotiate beaches and rocky inlets. Convenient carry handles are provided at the bow and stern.
The lightweight Passport is easy to store and easy to move. Its design allows it to stack easily. This makes it easier to keep enough kayaks for a couple or a family without taking up very much space.
The Hobie is at home in both fresh and saltwater. The Mirage’s value with its simple and sleek design and durable Thermoform construction is a great choice for anglers. From novices purchasing their first fishing kayak to experienced anglers looking to add an additional boats to their lineup. Best of all, it’s now available at Hobie authorized dealers.
