At long last the much anticipated 2015 Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 17T (www.hobiecat.com) stock kits are now available for purchase on our webstore. Stock SeaDek kayak kits are 5mm thick with an embossed texture, and are produced in Storm Gray and Army Camo. www.seadek.com/p-496-hobie-mirage-pro-angler-17t-2015.aspx
Custom kits are also available for order through our customer service department. These kits can be produced in any color combination and can include custom logo work. Here’s the prototype kit we made for Chuck Levi from KBB Outfitters (www.kbboutfitters.com)(http://kayaksbybo.com/).
This custom kit is Brown over Black Faux Teak with custom graphics. Please reference part #17718
For more information and additional images on our prototype kit, check out the blog post at www.seadek.com/blog/2015-hobie-pa-17-seadek-kit.
*Faux Teak kayaks kits are not generally produced due to the small parts most kayaks require. This PA 17 is an exception because the parts are larger than most kayak kits and we used a smaller, custom faux teak pattern.
About the 2015 Mirage Hobie Pro Angler 17T – from www.hobiecat.com/mirage/mirage-pro-angler-17
The new Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 17T is a fishing machine with comfort, stability and room for everything you need, including another person. Plus, it’s powered by the patented Hobie MirageDrive pedal system.
The fully adjustable Vantage XT seating can be setup in multiple configurations: in-line tandem, face-to-face social tandem, or as a single. The PA17T is the perfect platform to teach a young one how to fish, take your family member out, or simply fish hard with your best fishing buddy. Fishing rod storage, both front and rear, holds up to 12 rods and the new H-Rail System allows you to customize accessory placement.
Both users can stand and fish in comfort and each cockpit is fitted with a large rectangular hatch with pivoting tackle management system; there’s even additional under-seat storage for bringing plenty of tackle boxes. The Lowrance® Ready feature with pre-installed thru-hull cable plug outlets makes adding most fishfinders easy. Use it “guide style” where the aft passenger provides power and puts the front angler on the fish or add an optional trolling motor to use it like a bass boat. Add the optional Livewell XL for storing your catch or taking plenty of live bait.
The hull will cut through ocean swells and the drop down skeg provides solid tracking over long voyages. With three rudder control steering handles, you can position the boat from any seating location while you or your buddy battles the big one. This vessel has found its niche through human propulsion via the MirageDrive, the ability to launch in no-motor zones or areas with no boat ramp, and minimal maintenance thanks to its durable polyethylene hull and rigid components.
