Official  Hobie, American SailZIM Sailboat Sailboat Dealer

We can custom order your sailboat or you can pick up in the showroom if we have availability.  We offer small sailing dinghies but they sell out early in the season - especially the Sunblazers and the Hobie Sailboats!  Give us a  call to discuss! 

We know you have the option of purchasing sailboats directly from the Internet - but do you really want to deal with a bunch of heavy boxes, hope there is no damage, deal with a manual and the frustration of rigging the boat - all the while paying the expensive freight costs?  Meanwhile - where is your support?  Call us - we make it easy because we were founded by sailors, run by sailors and we ARE sailors.   #SHOPLOCAL
