When Bob Hewes started building boats his goal was simple-create the best all around, light tackle shallow-water boat available. Today, that goal hasn't changed but almost everything else has. Over fifty years of experience has taught us a lot about building light tackle boats. That experience and passion is expressed nowhere better than the new Hewes models.
These boats are lighter, stronger, faster and safer with revolutionary new hull designs, state-of-the-art construction techniques, and more fishing-smart features than any other shallow-water boat on the market.
The Hewes Redfishers are truly angler inspired. They are designed and constructed with the absolute latest in marine technologies and materials. Each boat has been substantially improved from both a technology and fishing point-of-view. Our ideas and methods are all tested on the water, in real world fishing conditions by the Hewes factory teams. That's why the handcrafted skiffs built by Hewes perform better, are more versatile, easier to maintain, traditionally hold higher value and are just plain better boats to own.
What hasn't changed about the new models is the Hewes spirit and over a 50-year legacy of experience, innovation, quality and value. These things will always be standard features in our boats.
