Hobie Getaway



The Hobie Getaway is an American catamaran sailboat, that was designed by Hobie Cat and first built in 2001.

The boat is built by Hobie Cat in the United States, and remained in production in 2018.

Design

The Getaway is a small recreational catamaran, with the dual hulls built of rotomolded polyethylene. It has a fractional sloop rig, including a roller furling jib and a full-batten mainsail, dual transom-hung rudders and no keel or daggerboards. It displaces 390 lb and can carry 1000 lb of occupants.

A mast-top float to prevent the boat turning turtle is included as standard equipment. Wing seats for hiking out and trapezing from are optional. A trapeze is also optional.

The boat has a draft of 0.70 ft with the rudders down and 0.25 ft with rudders up.

In 2007 the Getaway was redesigned with rectangular storage hatches vs. the previous circular hatch. The EZ LOC rudder was also introduced.

The boat was redesigned in 2017 to give it a length overall of 17.00 ft, an increase from the original design 16.58 ft.
