We have refurbished a Hobie Tiger F18 catamaran while it is on loan to us at our beach. The Hobie Tiger is a Formula 18 high performance catamaran with centreboards which now has new ropes, blocks and elastics and all dents filled with the hulls polished and foils repaired which means that it is back to racing condition but of course, it had to be tested!
Hobie Tiger at Europa Surf and Sail
John and Giuly, Ciaran and Hannah and Liam and Ciaran all trying out our new F18 catamaran, the Hobie Tiger. Now rigged with a gennaker it's tremendous fun but only available for tuition, not rental.
For our beginner catamaran courses, or RYA conversion courses, we mainly use the Hobie 15 and the Hobie 18 Pacific with lighter sailors using the Topper Topaz 16 with its simple gennaker system. More advanced courses. Our Topaz 14s and Topaz 12 enable younger sailors to sail by themselves.
