I'm ready to replace my Getaway which I bought in 2006, but just found that Hobie only apparently makes the new orange-lime color scheme, which definitely not to my liking. Are there any of the old color scheme Getaways still available anywhere? As close to the NorthWest as possible...

Or will Hobie restart the old colors - I can wait before I buy a new boat!

No plans for a color change mid model year. Earliest would be next September, but usually colors stay around a few years. Must be working for some people... we are having an amazing year with Catamaran sales.

Hi Matt,

I'm having the same dilemma as Xavier. I am ready to replace our 16 with a getaway. Getting old and need something a little more tame for myself and the grandkids. I love the lines on the new getaway but would like colours that are a bit more subdued. Is it possible to get a white sail and forego the coloured decals on the side of the hulls?

I think I saw something like that in a video put out by the Mission Bay Aquatics Centre.

You can order custom colors, white or the older style sails with a new boat. Either peel off the graphics or possible the factory would omit.

Well, I like the new colors and hull design. But my 2012 Getaway is running just fine, so I guess there's no need to update yet. Pshaw.
