PERFORMANCE AND SPEED
The result of the twin-‐stepped hull configuration is a bay boat that runs extremely flat and is quick to plane. With the use of a jackplate, this means the boat can get on plane very quickly in very little water – something of great value to the flats fisherman. However, the 25 Bay is no slouch when the going gets rough either.
Choose your custom helm options: GPS, electronics, and marine sound systems.
The 25′ Bay has comfortable seating around the abundance of live wells.
MAGICAL IN THE MANGROVES
The 25′ Bay is the perfect machine for those long runs to the back of Florida Bay, or the drive across a bumpy Biscayne Bay when the breeze builds to blustery. A smooth fast dry ride is what makes a Contender the favorite of sports fisherman everywhere. Built to fish, and built to last, a Contender gets the job done on the bay.
The high performance hull and generous 25’6” LOA combine to deliver an extremely smooth and dry ride. Among its most impressive characteristics, however, may be its speed and efficiency. Top end is high 60’s with the single Yamaha F300 with very little fuel burn, and with an option for a F350, it appeals to the speed demon and fuel conscious buyers alike. In keeping with Contender’s tradition of hard-‐core fishing boats, the 25 Bay offers all of the amenities you would expect in a larger bay boat, while incorporating some previously unseen features to accommodate the whole family, too.
The large casting platforms – forward and aft – provide ample room for several fishermen without ever feeling crowded. The use of covering boards and bolster pads along the full length of the cockpit mean that you will never beat up your knees while fighting a fish from inside the boat.
