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

Her superior ride is due to increased running surface of the integrated transom which is more structurally sound because it's part of the hull and not a separate bolt-on bracket.

Standard features include a self-bailing cockpit, one piece flush deck, raised livewell, large center console for extensive electronics and up to a 240 gallon optional fuel capacity for those long offshore runs. This is a true hardworking tournament winner with a long, proud and proven legacy.
