I have been wanting to get Hobie for awhile and today I finally got a chance to look at one one and take it for a little test drive. It was 2011 mirage revolution with turbo fins. I liked the pedals vs paddling and especially loved how I could cover so much water with so little effort. What I wasn’t crazy about was the seat and it just didn’t feel as stable and had a cramped feeling compared to my moken 14. I of course know that it is not going to be as stable or as roomy as the bigger and wider moken. I am sure I would get used to the feeling of the Hobie after spending some time on the water with it. Is $1,200 a good price for this kayak being a 2011? It was in great shape with hardly any scratches at all on the bottom or anywhere else.

The sweet spot is a Revo 13 and make sure the last two # of the serial specify the year. They have model in 11, 13, and 16.
This would be a good/fair price for the year and condition you mention. Would even be better if Revo 13 imo.

It is a great deal if they will still give you the full warranty.

I never asked about the warranty. I assumed they wouldn’t with it being a used 2011 model. I am looking at a couple other I saw on Craigslist also. I think this is about the best deal because I probably won’t find a Hobie for a better price.

Unless things change, the price will go up a bit after sales taxes. Without paying for the new prices this still is a good deal because they are well maintained by CCK and under warranty. They are probably just clearing out their rental fleet to bring in new ones.
