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.
Propelled by triple Yamaha 225hp engines, the 36 Fish Around slices through the roughest chop like a hot knife through butter, while giving you an exceedingly dry ride, courtesy of Contender’s 24.5° deadrise hull. And with a generous 420 gallon fuel capacity, you won’t have to let little things like time and distance keep you from meeting your angling destiny.
A 300 gallon above deck fish box, 60 gallon below deck livewell, full galley and enclosed electric head with shower are just a few of the features you’ll benefit from when you point her bow towards the horizon.
