Tried and tested for decades far offshore for many bluewater miles, the Contender Series Tournament Boat is the culmination of power and engineering created with all the advantages a fisherman needs on even the most challenging of days. With a Contender…you’re always in the game.



Over 30 years, thousands of boats, and more trophy-worthy fish than we can count, we’e arrived at one, irrefutable conclusion: we know how to build a fishing boat. Our Classic 25′ has evolved to the unrivaled power and performance of today’s tournament-proven winners, and like the hard-core fishermen, we are never satisfied. Every day our engineers continue to refine and improve the concept of the ultimate sport fishing boat. It pays to stay hungry.


While anyone can be unexpectedly fortunate on a day out on the water, here at Contender, we’re smarter than that. We know that the boat matters, and that’s why more tournaments are won on Contender than any other boat brand. To own a Contender is to own the best sport fishing boat on the market. Period.


Whether its keeping cold catch in any one of the massive below deck holds, or simply keeping a smartphone away from moisture, water can be a nuisance. Look forward to fully gasketed doors and hatches with integral drain tracks routing water out of the boat. Whether from a torrential downpour or an extra 450 gallons of livewell on deck, you can be confident in the self-bailing abilities of the boat to remove water from the deck and even keep a dry bilge.


Towers help you see for miles. Spot the frigates in the distance, or a bust on the surface by getting up off the water to see those important offshore indicators. Our in-house designs are built to order to make that special tournament caliber boat that will take you to the next level…up off the water and seeing the fish.


Offshore fishing is a lifestyle that we celebrate with our boats and our dedication to building a better fishing experience. Our attention to detail, and listening to fisherman has helped us build fishing boats that stand the test of time and operate for generations. Our boats win tournaments because they are built for fishermen, by fishermen.


The 39 Step Hull Tournament is designed to be the big dog on the big days. Contender is dedicated to building an offshore fishing boat that combines fuel efficiency with speed, comfort, and “fish-ability”. The 39 stepped hull delivers improvements in fuel efficiency, running speed and performance not found on competitors’ boats. With 500 gallon fuel capacity, you’ll have the long range you need to find the fish, or explore a new destination.

Always in the game

From 25′- 39′ Tournament Class Boats, nothing rides quite like a Contender. Attention to important details of comfort, speed, efficiency, and weight distribution keep your boat riding just a bit bigger than the seas. With top speeds over 70mph, you’ll never have a problem getting anywhere fast enough.

On those serious days, trim up, slow down, and surf a few big offshore waves, and you’ll understand why some days the extra length, weight, and attention to detail make a big difference. Put on your foul weather gear, and hang on tight. Nothing rides like a Contender.
