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.
