New trailer — 2005 ‘Long’ brand bought from dealer in 2011, never used by previous owner, newly modified for Hobbie with mast extension, new winch. Fairly light weight design with 14″ wheels (two people can easily maneuver trailer with Hobbie across land if needed).

Main sail in good condition — a little worn at goose neck feeder area (common for Hobbies), but no issues. Old sail bag included. Colors white, pink, turquoise, and blue. White jib a little stained but in good condition

We have used this boat both in local lakes and outer banks — LOTS OF FUN. AMAZING how fast this boat can go! We are preparing to move north, with limited access to water. This Hobie deserves to go to a good owner who will love and care for it as much as we have. A great value!
