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.
Featuring two large staterooms, a spacious galley and enclosed head and shower, this powerful yet luxurious vessel satisfies the most demanding anglers and the most discriminating cruisers alike. Boasting an 11-foot-7inch beam, a 24-inch draft and 39-foot-11-inch LOA, the Contender 38 comes standard with 460-gallon fuel capacity along with an option to add an additional 110 gallons. Standard air-conditioning and generator power are also standard features. Engineered to accommodate triple engines up to 1100 hp, Contender builds this boat to get there and back with speed and comfort.
