Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 17T Kayak

The award-winning Hobie Mirage Pro Angler series is so popular that we decided to produce another design that allows two anglers to fish in the same boat. The new Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 17T is a fishing machine with comfort, stability and room for everything you need. Plus it’s powered by the world-renowned patented pedal system Hobie MirageDrive. You’ll have the choice to set up the fully adjustable Vantage XT Seating (extra tall), in the in-line tandem configuration, 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 preinstalled thru-hull cable plug outlets makes adding most fishfinders easy. Use it “guide style” where the aft passenger provides MirageDrive 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 new MirageDrive with Glide Technology and Turbo Bluefins, 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. It’s all about getting out there as often as possible... the Pro Angler 17T is waiting for you and a friend to explore new waters and better your biggest catches.
