Hobie’s new 2021 Model Passport 12 offers powerful pedal propulsion with the new Kick Up Glide Tech Miragedrive, a raised breathable mesh seat and a wider cockpit area with EVA floor padding to provide a stable platform for standing and stretching your legs.

The Passport 12 from Hobie closely resembles the earlier model Outback kayak, offering the same width length and very similar shape, but with the simplified design and construction methods presented in the new Passport series. Offers great storage capacity in the bow or stern cargo area with internal stowage in the twist and seal hatch conveniently positioned directly in front of the seat. Includes a built in transducer scupper system for easy installation and reliable operation of your sounder.

Other handy features include a simplified steering system with stowable rudder, two flush mounted rod holders, gear accessory tracks and under seat and gunnel tackle storage. In many ways, the Passport 12 is very similar to the older Outback which isn’t a bad thing.

In comparison to the Passport 10.5, the 12′ model offers slightly more speed (due to hull length) better stability (due to width) and with a bit more storage utility and an integrated transducer scupper, the Passport 12 is the superior model for kayak fishing
