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 31' Tournament continues to dominate the offshore scene with aggressive lines that tout an elevated level of confidence. Features include a one piece level deck from bow to stern, twin raised livewells, walk-through transom, self-bailing cockpit, and a walk-in step down console to name a few. Whether it's a kingfish tournament off North Carolina or billfish tournament off Miami, this is the boat that can put you in the winner's circle.
