For sale: 1993 Hobie 21 Sport Cruiser

I always dreamed of owning a Hobie 21 SC. I purchased this one a couple years ago and have spent a silly amount of time and money fixing it up. These are boats worth saving. I paid $8,400 and since then I have:

Replaced the main and wing tramps and lacing

Replaced the jib sheet, main halyard, topping lift, and hiking bungees

Added a brand new Sican 4hp motor – I have never even started it, just made sure it fit on the cheetah motor mount.

Purchased a new marine cooler and added a plywood deck on top to mount GPS, painted and sealed.

Added a power pole righting system

Replaced the plastic part of the luff track

Took it apart in my driveway, flipped it over on some sawhorses, and sanded the hulls and gave them an amateur paint job. The bottom of the hulls are smooth. The deck has been recaulked.

In front of the cabin there was a soft spot on the decks. I did the thing where you drill shallow holes and inject epoxy in a grid pattern.

Added non-marking rollers on the trailer sides, plus a new winch.

New drain plugs

Various miscellaneous parts

One of the slots for the wing seat had failed so I had a fiberglass guy come out and fix it. He did a terrific job. He cut a hole on the inside of the hull and rebuilt the slot. He did a great job patching it up. You can look online, that’s the way to fix it.

The coolest thing is the new sails. I had them custom made at Ullman sails in Sarasota. They are beautiful and modeled after the Spirit of 76 Hobie sails. The sails with jib snorkel were almost $2,800. I have used them once.

The old sails are included. They’re a little worn but work just fine.

So, why sell? My family just isn’t interested and I simply don’t have any time. I have sailed this boat once in the past year. It should go to someone who appreciates what a cool, rare boat these Sport Cruisers are and will use it. I did the expensive, hard work. You get to enjoy it for $10,500.
