Shallow Enough To Pole. Big Enough To Roam.

Starts from MSRP $59,618 w/ VF F115LA

The Redfisher 18 is very likely the most popular flats boat of all time. This versatile, mid-sized skiff has been the choice of top backcountry anglers and guides for decades for its speed, range and famous ride. The newly redesigned Redfisher 18 has all that and more with a new dedicated anchor locker, a new console for flush-mounted electronics up to 12” and a new, clever cushion setup.

A true backcountry 18, this iconic boat is now built using vacuum infusion (VARIS), for an even lighter, faster and stronger hull that is well balanced with either 115 or 150 horsepower. In addition, a new, optional backrest/step integrated into the poling tower makes those long early-light runs deep into the backcountry a safe and comfortable experience. The most popular and versatile backcountry boat is now better than ever.

What Our Customers Have To Say

My Hewes Redfisher 18 is an amazing boat and probably the best “do everything” boat in its class. With this boat I can fish tournaments, fish the backcountry, fish for tarpon off the beach, traverse open water in a significant chop (with surprising comfort), take my family to a sandbar for the day, and easily trailer it all over Florida with my Tacoma. In addition, the excellent fuel economy of the 115 SHO allows me to travel from southern Sarasota all the way to the mouth of Tampa Bay and back on a half of a tank of gas! Awesome boat.
