Hewescraft Sportsman
Teach a person to fish and chances are, they’ll want a Hewescraft. With its rugged hull construction combined with the roomy fishing decks, the Sportsman is right up there with the best of the best. With all welded aluminum construction, it has the strength of a good fishing boat and is super lightweight. It’s easy to tow and easy to handle in the water. The high sides, wide gunwales, and spacious boat design gives fishermen plenty of room to move around.

Functionality and affordability is at the heart of Hewescraft boats. It all began when Bob Hewes returned home from World War II and was on the hunt for the perfect fishing boat. He and a few pals put their heads together and designed a boat with raw materials they picked up in Spokane, Washington. From here, the family business was born. Today, Hewescraft is the best-selling, heavy-gauge aluminum boat in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska (where fishermen take their fishing and fishing gear very, very seriously.) With a factory in Colville, Washington, and nine different boat models ranging from 16’- 26’ to choose from, the family business has grown to 125 employees and sets the benchmark for fishing vessels everywhere.Hewescraft Sportsman Specs

It comes stocked with a plethora of standard features to make your day on the water super comfortable, and other options are available for those that want a custom fit. And if safety is on the top of the list, you’ll be glad to learn that all Hewescraft boats meet or exceed U.S. Coast Guard flotation requirements. Contact Hewescraft to find a boat dealer near you.
