Hobie Holder 14, MkII, 1988

  • Chicago, IL.

    This 14' one-design is the perfect daysailer for beginners learning to sail, yet still a ton of fun for experienced sailers. Its 6' beam makes it pretty hard to capsize - I never managed to do it!


  • Beautiful sails in great condition
  • Spring-action swing-keel and kick-up rudder
  • Roller-furling jib
  • Boom vang
  • Newly-added topping lift, to keep the boom out of the way at the dock.
  • I also added an extra fairlead to the boom, which really helps keep the mainsheet nice and tight to the boom.
  • Nice storage cubbie with enough room for all your supplies, and lunch, and some beer.
  • Cockpit is large enough for four adults.
  • Boat can be rigged in about 20-30 minutes.
  • Self bailing - unsinkable.
  • Flat bottom and swinging keel & rudder make this boat beachable!


  • It's in fine condition if you're not looking for something show-room perfect. I've patched a few dings and scratches from the dock, all from regular vacation use. The boat still looks like a dream in the water. I've always stored it in a garage, as did the lady who owned it before me.
  • In fact, one great thing about a 14' boat is that it'll fit in a regular one-car garage, on the trailer.
  • The lines and hardware are all in great condition.


  • The boat comes with a simple, galvanized trailer. Boat and trailer are light enough to easily maneuver by hand, and tow with a regular car.

    Outboard Motor

  • I have a 2HP Johnson outboard. If you're interested, I'll throw it in for $100.

    More Info

  • I've set up this site to provide more details and a ton of photos.

  • If you're interested in having a look, I live in the Chicago area, and I'm available most evenings and weekends. Give me a call, or send an email.
