Hewes Redfishers



As Australian representatives for Hewes and Maverick Boats we are pleased to announce that the 2015 Redfishers 16 and 18 models and Maverick HPX's are now rolling off the assembly line and ready to be shipped. These boats being quality built products are in high demand and held with high regard in the USA but with the conversion on the dollar the way it is we may just suprise you on a quote.

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.



 Nat has been running a 18 Redfisher since June 2009, this boat has proven itself in Hervey Bays varying conditions and shown to be an exceptional boat to flyfish from. 

The boat has a number of standout features, probably most noticable is how quiet the boat sits in the water, wether poling the flats or under power there is virtually no hull slap or noise, and this translates to more fish. 

The Hewes hulls are also unbeleivably dry and comfortable thanks to the 50 year evolution of the hull design.


The Redfishers 'little brother', the Hewes Bonefisher 16 was reviewed way back in Flylife Magazine Issue # 8, heres an exerpt from that review -
 
"The 16 footer is the smallest in the range but this is a very big boat in it's capacity as a sportfishing vessel and I simply cannot imagine a better boat for any inshore fishing. Dont let the low height of the sides of this boat fool you, it handles a mean inshore chop with ease and the cockpit is self draining

The Redfisher 16 and 18 have now taken over where the Bonefishers left off, and with a handfull of Hewes boats scattered around Australia - and a couple more on order, I think we'll be seeing alot more of these rigs on our waterways in coming years.
