    Born in California's big surf through a collaboration of Surf legend Hobie Alter, Surf Icon Phil Edwards, and Boat builder/designer Bill Potter, the Blue Water bred Hobie Power Skiff can take you just about anywhere and more comfortably and faster than any other boat in its class. Styled with performance in mind...just name your boating, skiing, diving, knee boarding, running waves or just cruising and looking good... the Hobie Power Skiff will deliver! This is an amazing example of a very rare 1985 Hobie Power Skiff. This cult classic boat is desired by divers and fisherman nationwide and has acheived cult-like status among in-the-know sportfishing and boating enthusiast forums across the internet.

    This 15' 2" modified V hull has a 5'9" beam and 7" draft and is uniquely designed with hand laid composite hull and decks, and foam filled construction making this hull truly unsinkable. Phil Edwards shaped the Hobie Power Skiff Hull to deliver a comfortable and secure ride with excellent stability...even at rest...but this boat was designed for rough water and that is where the Hobie Power Skiff really slices through the surf like butter! These boats were made with the finest materials available with Kevlar, carbon fiber, bi-directional E-Glass and titanium backing plates in all stress other words a tough boat that was built to last.

    Now about my boat...The hull is near perfect and has just had a full professional compound and wax job. The Sky Blue hull shimmers and looks amazing! The upholstery is brand new throughout, the fresh, deep cell battery safely secured under the famous molded console helm, stern light stanchion, running lights, Brand new Honda helm speed and tachometer gauges, new Racor fuel /water separator, and new fuel lines. The 20 gallon fuel tank was removed cleaned and polished and new fuel lines installed to the motor. To the aft of the helm console the 72 quart igloo cooler is mounted and in great condition with new upholstered seat pad. The 1996 Honda Four Stroke 40HP outboard is in amazing condition and runs flawlessly, it has just had a full new service. The motor has automatic trim and tilt. It comes with the original owner’s manual plus a full shop service manual.

    The trailer is in great condition fully restored with fresh, white epoxy paint on the front hitch and axle, new bunk rails, fresh seals, new bearings and bearing buddy’s.

    • A few other details...
    • Fully cored hand laid hull and deck
    • One-inch stainless rails
    • Forward storage locker with 15lb anchor...8' of chain and 100' of rode*Non-skid deck
    • New Stars and Stripes flag and flag stanchion
    • Above water, self draining deck with commercial scuppers

      This beauty needs NOTHING! It is ready to drive away, go to the ramp, launch and enjoy! I encourage interested parties to come down, take a look and take her out for a sea trial...that is the only way to truly understand the unique characteristics this boat has and the appeal of a small boat that can go offshore with the best of the big boys without the excess baggage.
    Clear California title for both the trailer and the vessel!

I am also happy to meet with your designee for any inspections or sea trials you may wish to arrange.
