Hewes Boats Launches New Redfisher 16 and Redfisher 18 Models
Fort Pierce, FL. March 5, 2012 –Maverick Boat Company, builders of the Hewes brand of flats boats, unveiled the newly redesigned Hewes Redfisher 16 and Redfisher 18 at the recent Miami Boat Show.
Keeping the same highly regarded hulls, the new Redfisher’s decks have been completely revamped to allow for more storage and a simpler and cleaner layout. Under seat storage at the helm has been expanded allowing for better access and more room. A new centerline livewell system with dual in-flow, bottom-to-top draining and a hidden standpipe enhances live bait carrying capability.
Shared by both models, a new console includes ample space for flush-mount electronics and an advanced fiber-optic switch panel with back- lighting and lighted switch tips that show when accessories are switched on. Low-light operation is further considered with standard blue LED interior cockpit lighting.
The boats’ forward decks have a single large lid that offers access to increased dry storage in the bow. The powder-coated fuel tanks, 21 gallon and 31 gallon respectively, are accessible from the bow storage lid and their new forward position offers better balance to offset the weight of today’s more common four-stroke outboards.
“The new 2013 Redfishers offer the classic layouts that have made flats boats so popular for so many different types of fishing. Large flush decks, voluminous dry storage, and state of the art construction and livewell designs offer the best marriage of experience and innovation,” commented Scott Deal, President of Maverick Boat Company.
Hewes boats are manufactured by Maverick Boat Company. Inc, builders of the legendary Maverick, Hewes, Pathfinder and Cobia boat brands. For more information, go to www.hewes.com.
