Hewes. 60 years of innovation, experience and quality. Six decades ago, Bob Hewes created a unique boat that later became the famous Hewes Bonefisher. Its innovative design allowed it to stalk especially spooky gamefish in very shallow water and in places where few anglers or boats had gone previously.
As the Hewes Bonefisher introduced a legion of fisherman to the angling challenges that waited on the flats, the brand became synonymous with innovation and performance.
Along the way came countless tournament wins and many accolades. More shallow water world records have been caught aboard a Hewes and, on any given day, it’s a sure bet that more anglers are poling the flats or casting to a shoreline from a Hewes than any other boat ever made.
To Bob Hewes flats fishermen owe a debt of gratitude, as his early boats shaped the sport and those carrying his name since have provided a wealth of memories and a realisation of our angling dreams.
Today’s Hewes Redfisher models combine all the heritage and experience of six decades with the latest in boat building technologies and space–age materials. Their revolutionary hull designs are lighter, stronger, shallower, faster and more efficient. The boats are designed for real world situations by professional anglers and guides, and are hand built by master boat technicians.
Every new Redfisher wears the badge of being ABYC certified, the highest safety standard in the boating industry. That’s why the new Hewes are more versatile, easier to maintain and the legendary standard in flats boats.
