We can confidently say that the Hobie Getaway is one of the most comfortable, stable, easy to use platforms ever. Yes, it's a little bit big and not for every situation, but, it's just one of the 'cruisiest', relaxed and comfortable boats for time on the water.

What about shipping and boat delivery?

Despite their size, we are able to ship most boats safely and inexpensively. For the Hobie Getaway, the safest way to ship is on a dedicated trailer. Please select the trailer add on option (Add Trailer - Carnai Road Base w/ Mast Stand) below before adding to your shopping cart. Our team will fully assemble your boat (to the extent possible for transportation) before arranging delivery to you. Shipping rates vary based on where you are located but will be calculated in the shopping cart. Due to dealer territory restrictions, West Coast Sailing reserves the right to cancel an order if shipping into another dealers territory. To confirm if we can ship a new Hobie 16 to you before ordering or to discuss options without a trailer, please contact our team at or by calling or texting 1-502-285-5536.

If you would like to pickup your new Hobie Getaway from our store in Portland, OR, please select the 'No Trailer (In Store Pickup Only)' option below before hitting ADD TO CART. In the shopping cart, please enter our address (709 N Columbia Blvd, Portland, OR 97217 United States) to display the In Store Pickup method.
