Hobie Compass


The all-new Mirage Compass from Hobie brings a new 12ft hull design combines  the bow from a Revolution and the under-hull and back end of a Pro Angler! This has created an outstanding kayak for fishing and all-round touring. The Mirage Compass offers great forwards speed along with excellent stability and manoeuvrability making the Compass ideal for both inland waters and coastal waters.

The Mirage Compass is an ideal fishing kayak and comes complete with 2 moulded-in fishing rod holders. H-Track sections can be found either side of the foot well allowing for easy accessory mounting without the need to drill the kayak. The H-Track is compatible with all the mounts offered from Railblaza, Ram Mounts, Yak Attack and Scotty, allowing you to easily fit your fish finder, rod holders, camera mounts and more. The large rear tank well will easily house a storage crate such as the H-Crate for storage of your fishing gear, or even the Hobie Livewell, and comes with bungee tie-downs. Further gear can be stored beneath the mesh cover on the bow of the Compass. An 8 inch Twist and Stow hatch is fitted in front of the seat so that you can keep fishing tackle or bait within easy reach. A flat deck in front of the seat allows for standing in flat calm waters, for sight fishing and casting.

Powered by the efficient Mirage Drive with Glide Technology for a smooth pedalling experience. Fingertip steering using a control handle beside the seat operates the rudder beneath the stern for excellent manoeuvrability. Fish whilst on the move, take photos or film whilst on the move and much more with the Mirage Compass. The seat features quick-drying mesh and is adjustable allowing for a comfortable pedalling position to be achieved. The seat is optimally positioned in height for fishing whilst allowing for space beneath the seat for tackle storage.

  The Mirage Compass also comes fitted as standard with the Lowrance-Ready system. The Lowrance-Ready system makes fish finder installation easy using a large transducer scupper under the kayak and a system of deck seals for waterproof cable routing. The deck seals are supplied separately allowing for installation where suits you best.

 The Compass is one of the lightest kayaks in the Mirage Kayak range, coming in at a respectable 31kg fitted hull weight, and 39kg when loaded with the Mirage Drive, Seat and Paddle.

The Mirage Compass is truly a superb all-round fishing kayak from Hobie at a great price!
