A CAPTAIN’S HELM
Powered by triple Yamaha 350hp engines, the Contender 35ST is a long range fishing dream. This boat is an open water speed demon topping out at over 70MPH. With a fuel capacity of 400 gallons, you’ll never be questioning if you should head home early. Get there fast, get there dry, get in the game.
A CAPTAIN’S TOWER
The 35ST is available with custom fishing options, including towers built to sight fish, or spot birds for miles. Get above the water, and spot the bite finding fish by sight from above. Complete second station setups to keep you informed of position and other important information. The captain’s view from the tower is critical in directing championship crews and always staying at the helm. Once you’ve been in one, you’ll see the distinct competitive advantage of a captain level crows nest, and why Contenders are built for offshore fishing performance. You’ll see why Contender boats have been called the “unfair advantage”.

The tower calls you early in the morning. You know the winds will be howling, but that means the fish will be biting. You’re rigged, prepared, and ready to fish with a great crew. Stay in the game with fishability, reliability, and attention to detail on your side. You’re always in the game with a Contender.
