I bought my Hobie 14 two years ago and with no previous sailing experience taught my self to sail. These boats are very inexpensive, mid 1970's versions usally sell for around $900 in fair condition and go up as they get newer, I paid $1200 for mine with a trailer. I am adding a jib to my boat this year. with all new parts it will run about $500 (or $800 if you want a roller furler). Over all this is a great boat if you regularly single hand and will handle a crew of 2. If you want to have 2 or more people on board regularly I would suggest looking at the hobie 16 or 18. For novice sailors the Hobie 14 and 16 are great starter boats. they are much more stable and faster than small monohulls like the laser. try one and you'll be hooked.

ps if you want to know how to rig the boat for a jib without the roller furler email me or contact me at
