The Hobie Mirage "Pro Angler 17T" is a fishing machine with comfort, stability, and room for everything you need. Like the original Pro Angler, the 17T is powered by Hobie's MirageDrive pedal system. You'll have the option to set up the fully adjustable Vantage XT Seating, 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; 2 vertical and 10 horizontal. The new H-Rail System allows you to customize accessory placement and comes with 2 H-Rail mounting plates, 2 H-Rail rod stacks, and 2 H-Rail cup holders. 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 Pro Angler 17T is Lowrance Ready with pre-installed thru-hull cable plug outlets. 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 MirageDrive, 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. See the videos for more details on the features of the Pro Angler 17T.
