I worked at Hobie R&D and helped build all the tooling for the Hobie 33 as well as sail the prototype 33 almost every day.

Really neat boat and a blast to sail, and yes, they have done many offshore long distance races and race PHRF on the west coast often.

You can sometimes find one for sale but they are still being built in Dana Point, CA.

The builder has added the Turbo option of retracting carbon pole and aso chute set up similar to the J Boats design.

I am sure you cann get in touch with the builder, Robbie Roberson by contacting Hobie in Oceanside, CA

Send me a PM if you need more help on this.
