Hobie Wave Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What's the difference between the Club and Classic?

A: The boats are the same except for the trampoline options. The Classic has a one piece trampoline with 4x cup holders (this is our most popular model, by 5:1). The Wave Club has 3 piece trampoline that laces together and has no cup holders.

Q: I've seen photos of the Wave with a Jib Kit, what do you think?

A: We sell a lot of Waves with the Jib Kit - as a general rule, the Wave is a bit underpowered - so the jib adds a bit of extra performance. More than that, most people sail their Wave with friends and others, so, the jib keeps the crew busy :)

Q: Backrests?

A: These are awesome... but most customers don't get 'em. It’s a permanent installation, which sometimes scares people off. We really like these, but honestly don't sell a lot of them.

Q: Does the Wave offer reefing or furling options?

A: It does not. We've found it not super needed in most conditions - the Wave is pretty docile in everything except for a full on gale.

Q: Trailer options, what's best?

A: We've got galvanized trailers purpose built for the Wave. Easy.

Q: Can it fly a hull?

A: We get this one a lot. Yes, in can, but not exactly in the sense most people think. The windward hull will lift and fall and kiss the water a bit, but unless you're trying to show off, it’s won't be raised out of the water fully like the racing catamarans.

About the Hobie Wave

The Wave is an exciting and easy-to-sail catamaran for sailors of all sizes and skills. This recreational boat can be sailed solo or with a crew of four, and the Wave’s boomless sail provides power in all conditions. Thanks to the shape of the hulls, no daggerboards are needed. The rotomolded hull is virtually indestructible, so launching and docking is stress-free. The Hobie Wave is simple and always engaging.
