Hewes has brought back the Redfisher 21, taking this angler favorite to another level. Built using VARIS (Vacuum Assisted Resin Infusion System) and designed for a maximum horsepower rating of 350 with a jackplate standard, this boat specializes in catching bait in one zone, fishing another, and then making the docks in time for a tournament weigh-in, even in tough sea conditions.

Expansive casting decks and walkaround gunwales create a stable, uncluttered platform that allows multiple anglers to still fish when the action gets heavy. Hewes also planned for loads of lockable, dry storage for everything from cast nets to gear bags. The new console face spans enough space to flush mount a 12-inch electronics unit.
