Contender Fishing Boats have been fished in South Florida for over 35 years. With thousands of boats floating along coasts around the country, the product is the best testament to “Performance Through Innovation”.
Contender builds 24′-44′ boats for fisherman and families on the water. All models 25′ and up are made of three pieces — the hull, liner, and cap. The fiberglassed pieces fit together to build a fishing machine.

Built for Fun
BUILT TO FISH
BUILT TO PERFORM AND OUTLAST OFFSHORE
…AND NO BETTER BOAT IN THE BAY.
NOT JUST A COMPETITOR…
Conditions can change quickly and dramatically in our vast oceans.
When the wind picks up, and the temperature drops, getting home is on everyone’s mind.
That’s why Contender employees and their families spend lots of time in the craft they create.
From top level managers all the way down to the shop floor, there is a shared respect for the gravity of offshore situations that can arise on seemingly perfect days.
This respect goes into every inch of every boat made so that when adverse weather prevails without notice people are confident in our product to get them back to safety comfortably.
From rough days at sea, to the sweet taste of tournament fishing victory…
