Default Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 12

Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 12
By Tom Richardson on May 16th, 2012

Hobie has introduced the lightweight, compact Mirage Pro Angler 12. At 120 pounds fully rigged, the 12 long, 36 wide, hull sports a 500-pound weight capacity and numerous fishing and comfort features.
Mirage Pro Angler 12 Highlights:

MirageDrive pedal propulsion system.
Hobie Vantage seat with comfort-mesh for breathability and easy fore/aft and up/down adjustment while seated. The integrated Boa System provides outstanding lumbar support, and the seat folds out of the way when you are ready to stand. The seat is easily removable for use on-shore.
Lowrance-ready, built-in transducer mount featuring pre-installed through-hull cable plugs.
Large rectangular center hatch with pivoting compartment that houses 2 medium Plano tackle boxes.
Oversized fingertip steering handle on the left side, making it easy to cast, hook and land fish while maneuvering. Steering from both sides comes standard, and the main handle can easily be moved from one side to the other for right- or lefthand operation.
Two vertical, molded-in rod holders angled for trolling and 4 horizontal built-in rod holders with rod tip protection.
Front, rear and side handles for easy transport.
Brass inserts for optional anchor trolley kit.
Removable front hatch liner sized for holding fish, drinks or gear.
Two replaceable mounting boards for additional electronics and rod holders.
Anti-skid floor mats.
Receptacle for aftermarket accessories mount or sail and mast.

Price: $2,549

Default Bassyaks PA 12

Bassyaks has designed a 12 volt motor kit for the Pro Angler 12, this kit is even better than the 14's. The batteries, either 1 or 2 22NF 55Ahrs will fit inside the center hatch and still will allow the plano boxes to be stowed as intended. The foot pedals are completely out of the way and still you'll be able to stow your rods as intended. The Bracket setup is the same as on the 14. The choices of a 30 ,40, or 45 thrust lb motor combined with the new speed prop will put this boat in the 6.5 - 7 mph range and with a capacity of 110 Ahrs , you may be looking at 10 hours of run time. The throttle control will be a PWM electronic speed control with variable speed control and extended run times Top speed was 5.3 mph
