2021 Hewes Craft 270 Pacific Explorer


For 2021 we have taken a familiar name and added to its renowned comfort on the water.  Our newly redesigned 270 Pacific Explorer is based on our offshore-tough, 8’-wide Alaskan hull with many added conveniences for extended stays on the water.  Although we have added more class and comfort to this brand new Pacific Explorer, it is still built with fishing in mind and it does not sacrifice any of the rugged, fishing-first tradition upon which Hewescraft was founded.


The new interior features a class-leading berth and enough space to comfortably sleep a family of four. Many of the amenities and finishing touches previously only found in our flagship 290 Adventure have now been introduced into the Pacific Explorer.  The 102” beam and 190 gallon fuel capacity ensure that you have endless opportunities to explore on the water.
