Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 17T – European introduction at PADDLEexpo, Nurnberg
It´s an tandem fishing boat, with three different seating configurations including traditional in-line tandem seating, face-to-face social tandem or solo, all with enough room for man’s best four-legged friend. Also plenty of space for standing, casting and fly fishing in comfort. A human-powered 17’ fishing machine. No gas needed, no-motor-zone compliant and made in the U.S.A
Pro Angler 17T integrates all the features of its predecessors PA12 and PA14 including Hobie’s iconic patented MirageDrive® pedal system and Vantage XT seating and adds new features such as the H-Rail System for customizing accessories, a tracking skeg for covering long distances and a battery platform for an optional trolling motor, crate or small cooler. The result is like nothing else on the market.
All anglers know that customizing their watercraft is a major part of ownership fun. The new patent-pending twelve-sided H-Rail mounting system runs along each side of the boat and provides a quick and easy way to secure multitudes of accessories. Two-each H-Rail Mounting Plates, Rod Racks and Cup Holders come stock with the boat. An infinite number of optional accessories can then be added to the H-Rail such as tackle bins, fish finders, camera mount or rod holders.
The Pro Angler 17T hull weight is 84 kg and 104 kg when fully rigged with standard features and it has over 400 kg capacity.
