A tradition of the highest level of craftsmanship and design goes into every fishing boat Hewes Marine Company creates. A Hewescraft is an heirloom you can put to use right now.
Hewescraft has been manufacturing welded aluminum boats in Colville, Washington for nearly 60 years—longer than any other aluminum boat builder on the West Coast. Our expertise and reputation has proved itself over the years. Through the years Hewescraft boats have often been copied, but never reproduced.
Every hull has a 100% all-welded structure. Our thick channel supports and box beam construction provide extra structural integrity to ensure that Hewescraft boats will last a lifetime. Our heavy gauge welded aluminum offers 10 times the sheer strength of fiberglass, significantly more durability than riveted hulls.
Hewescraft engineering designs are downloaded to our computerized plasma cutter for precision cuts and repeatability in construction.
Hewescraft boats are built for serious fishermen with plenty of room for fighting fish, not the rest of the crew. Our high sides, wide gunwales and spacious design allow for pure fishing functionality.
Hewescraft boats are a great value the day you pull them off the dealer’s lot, and the resale value stays strong 20 years later when fiberglass boats have costly problems and riveted boats need repair work.
Each model we make meets or exceeds U.S. Coast Guard floatation requirements. Hewescraft goes the extra step to install recoverable floatation in boats over 20’ even though none is required.
Every Hewescraft hull is water tested in our factory—something many boat manufacturers cannot claim. We take flotation to extremes by physically swamping new models to verify safe floatation. Keeping families safe is our top priority.
As Alaska’s best-selling boat brand, Hewescraft boats have set the standard for open-ocean adventure. With our aggressive, deep-v hull design, rough waters are no match against a strong and safe Hewescraft boat.
From the Sportsman to the Sea Runner, Hewescraft boats offer a variety of canvas soft-top options in various colors and sizes. For more extreme conditions, the ProV and Sea Runner models offer hardtop options for additional protection from the elements.
Not only is aluminum stronger than fiberglass, it also weighs considerably less. This allows your Hewescraft boat to travel farther in the water providing higher fuel efficiency and makes towing your Hewescraft easier too.
