Texas' Only True Boatworks Facility


NewWater Guides

Our guides represent a highly reputable team of experts whose vast on-the-water experience informs their opinions of our products. Some of our guides have over 1000 days aboard a NewWater boat, so you can afford to listen to what they say about the performance, durability, and ease of use of our shallow water skiffs. We owe a great deal to the honest feedback that these professionals provide us, and we endeavor to incorporate their recommendations into our finished creations. We encourage you to contact them for their assessments of their own boat-and-motor combinations, and to experience a NewWater skiff in the hands of a seasoned professional.

Our Texas NewWater guides have assisted the winners of the flyfishing division of the Texas International Fishing Tournament in recent years. In 2013, the clients of Capts. Rick Hartman, Randy Cawlfield (guiding his son Truett), and Scott Sparrow took 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places, respectively. In 2014, the clients of Capts. Randy Cawlfield (again guiding his son Truett) and Skipper Ray took 2nd and 3rd. We’re proud of our guides, and we often hear that they are proud of the skiffs that help them guide their clients to success. And in 2015, Rick Hartman's client took 1st prize! We have the best guides representing our skiffs on the Texas coast!
