A serious backcountry boat that’s easy to manage.

Starts from MSRP $54,764 with VF90LA

The hallmark of any good flats boat is that it runs and fishes bigger than its size. That’s especially true of the completely redesigned, vacuum infused (VARIS) Redfisher 16. With the famous Hewes ride and the range provided by horsepower options from 70 to 115, this boat can cover lots of ground comfortably and safely even in bigger water. Once the fishing grounds are reached, the wide beam and walk around gunwales make for an exceptionally stable fishing platform that floats in 11” of water and can be easily poled or fished with a trolling motor. The best part about all this versatility is that the Redfisher 16 can still fit in your garage. And because it’s a Hewes, you know it’s backed by the people who’ve built more flats boats than anyone.

What Our Customers Have To Say

Why do I love my Hewes? Well to start, versatility. My Redfisher 16 is comfortable in a great mix of situations and waters, from the mighty St. John’s river here in Jacksonville, FL on the nastiest days and all the way back into some of the shallowest of the Marsh Creeks chasing after low tide redfish. The Redfisher offers ample storage, a dry ride and comfort for up to 4 passengers. It fishes three people very comfortably and is also a super stable fishing platform. The Hewes name is synonymous with quality, craftsmanship, and great fishability as well as versatility, and that is something I experience every time I am on the water in my Hewes. Thanks for making a great boat!
