Hand Built in the USA.

The Contender 28T is hand built in Homestead, FL. 

The 28′ boat is a center console classic.  Built for speed, and built to last, the hull goes to sea with a ride like no other.

Built to Order.

Every Contender is built to order.  Built with the options you want to make your boat

Every Contender is hand laid fiberglass with an attention to detail in hull ride that keeps captains and customers coming back with new developments to further their boating game.  The build process is not an automated assembly line that offers no options.  Our model options make ever boat unique with the personality and style to make it your own.

Built for the Blue Water.

Built for speed, range, and finding big fish in blue water.  The 28T is the ride designed to take you beyond the jetty, and into the deep blue ocean in pursuit of ocean pelagics that most only see in posters.
