Contender

Contender’s line of 21’ to 40’ boats are designed for tournament sportfishing. This company made a name for itself by winning multiple titles in SKA (Southern Kingfish Association) tournament competitions, and a look at their boats tells you why: they feature everything from multiple over-sized livewells to built-in tackleboxes, to semi-custom touches like onboard helium tanks for kite fishing in a dead wind. These boats are also designed to be among the first to the fishing grounds, with deep-V hulls and high power ratings that make for fast cruising speeds.

Boat Description

If you were going to create a sign to advertise our 23 Tournament it might be the following: Fish beware. Then again, this boat is equally adept at taking you out for a day of diving. Truth be told, the 23 Tournament is simply a great all-around boat. And rigged with single or twin Yamaha outboards, you’ll get to where you want to go quickly and efficiently. With Contender’s 24.5-degree offshore hull design, she’ll make quick work of any chop with a soft, dry ride. Amenities include recessed bow rail, forward recessed gunwale rod holders, 50 gallon livewell and walk through transom. For fishing, for fun, the 23 Tournament will suit, and surpass, all of your needs.
