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.
The 28-S incorporates a host of features that will appeal to serious anglers and pleasure boaters alike. With an expanded step-down console that includes a finished fiberglass liner, a marine head and shower, this creation combines Contender’s famous hard-core fishability with conveniences all boaters enjoy. These include a unique forward seating arrangement with toe kick, which besides being comfortable allows amply dry storage. All the proven features and options offered on the original Contender 28 are available on the Contender 28-S, including additional fuel capacity for long-range capability, custom seating configurations, specialized T-top designs, custom livewell placement, instrument configuration and more.
