To our Contender Family:
2021 continues to be a challenging time for manufacturing. We want to assure you, our customers and family, that we are doing everything we can to deliver the highest quality boats and are working tirelessly to ensure they are delivered on time. That being said, we continue to see material and product shortages throughout our supply chain that are outside of our control.
Several factors are at play, which are affecting all areas of manufacturing, globally.
-The Texas ice storms have disrupted the production and shipment of materials used in our lamination process.
-Shipping container shortages have affected the supply of overseas parts, most significantly engines and rigging.
-Covid-19 related factory shutdowns have affected several of our vendors, critically for steering components.
With so many factors in play, the situation has been changing quickly, and often. We are doing everything in our power to minimize the effects of these supply chain issues on our delivery schedule, but we do ask for your patience as we navigate this situation. We hope that you and your family remain safe and healthy during this time, and we will keep you updated as information becomes available.
