TOURNAMENT WINNING FISHING BOATS

Tried and tested for decades far offshore for many bluewater miles, the Contender Series Tournament Boat is the culmination of power and engineering created with all the advantages a fisherman needs on even the most challenging of days. With a Contender…you’re always in the game.

EVOLVING PERFECTIONISM

Over 30 years, thousands of boats, and more trophy-worthy fish than we can count, we’e arrived at one, irrefutable conclusion: we know how to build a fishing boat. Our Classic 25′ has evolved to the unrivaled power and performance of today’s tournament-proven winners, and like the hard-core fishermen, we are never satisfied. Every day our engineers continue to refine and improve the concept of the ultimate sport fishing boat. It pays to stay hungry.

MORE THAN LUCK

While anyone can be unexpectedly fortunate on a day out on the water, here at Contender, we’re smarter than that. We know that the boat matters, and that’s why more tournaments are won on Contender than any other boat brand. To own a Contender is to own the best sport fishing boat on the market. Period.

DRY STORAGE STAYS DRY

Whether its keeping cold catch in any one of the massive below deck holds, or simply keeping a smartphone away from moisture, water can be a nuisance. Look forward to fully gasketed doors and hatches with integral drain tracks routing water out of the boat. Whether from a torrential downpour or an extra 450 gallons of livewell on deck, you can be confident in the self-bailing abilities of the boat to remove water from the deck and even keep a dry bilge.

CUSTOM TOWERS

Towers help you see for miles. Spot the frigates in the distance, or a bust on the surface by getting up off the water to see those important offshore indicators. Our in-house designs are built to order to make that special tournament caliber boat that will take you to the next level…up off the water and seeing the fish.

TOURNAMENT TESTED

Offshore fishing is a lifestyle that we celebrate with our boats and our dedication to building a better fishing experience. Our attention to detail, and listening to fisherman has helped us build fishing boats that have stood the test of time and operate for generations. Our boats win tournaments because their built for fishermen, by fishermen.
