The Hobie Magic 25 is a trailable, strict one-design monohull sportsboat that was manufactured by the Hobie Cat Company (USA), Bashford Boatbuilder (Australia) and Lidgard Boatbuilder (New Zealand) for racing and day sailing in the late 1990s. Designed for Hobie by Australian designer Iain Murray and Associates. The Magic 25 has a fractional rig. It utilizes a full carbon rig, triple trapeze, gennaker, retractable bowsprit, aluminium fin keel with a torpedo bulb, hydraulic mast ram and a powerful sail plan. Construction is mid-tech, employing vinylester and polyester resin over an E-glass and quadraxial lay-up, with 15mm Divincell foam core and carbon reinforcement.

The mast was manufactured using pre-impregnated carbon fibre in a one piece mould. The bowsprit and tiller are also carbon fibre. The Spinnaker is 48.4 sqm.
