Why Choose Hewescraft?
Hewescraft has been manufacturing aluminum boats in Colville, WA for over 60 years—longer than any other aluminum boat builder on the West Coast. Our expertise and reputation have proven themselves 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, and significantly more durability than riveted hulls.
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.
Every Hewescraft hull is water tested in our factory—something many boat manufacturers cannot claim. Each model we make meets or exceeds U.S. Coast Guard floatation requirements. We go the extra step to install recoverable floatation in boats over 20’ even though none is required. Keeping families safe is our top priority.
Big Water Proven:
Hewescraft fishing boats are the #1–selling, heavy–gauge aluminum boat in the state of Alaska—a place where people take their fishing and boats very seriously. Our boats are built to last a lifetime, which means reliability and higher resale value.
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.
Light Weight and Fuel Efficient:
Heavy gauge doesn’t mean heavy on the wallet. Hewescraft boats are easy to tow and store, and are fuel efficient on the water.
