About Contender Boats
In 1984, Contender began their boat building with their classic 25’ Center Console. Unlike some mass production boat builders, Contender prides themselves with a traditional “hands on” boat building philosophy while using the most advanced modern materials and quality components available.
A Contender is built by fishermen for fishermen. This is why their interior layouts are clean and unobstructed with one level deck allowing quick and easy movement from bow to stern. Below the oversized decks lie large storage compartments with flush mount gaskets. Polyurethane foam is injected into practically every available cavity acting as flotation as well as a sound deadening benefit. Other noteworthy Contender features include raised transom live wells, integrated flush mount bow rails, anchor locks, walk-through transoms and self-bailing cockpits. Every Contender is outfitted with Yamaha outboards that are perfectly suited for the particular Contender model.
Contender has been producing the highest quality, most well designed boats for over 25 years. Their growing popularity among true die-hard fisherman is a testament to Contender’s reputation and legendary performance.
If there’s one thing we’ve proven, it’s this: you don’t have to be around a long time to be considered a legend. In just 25 short years, Contender has redefined all that a sportfishing boat can be.
From our early beginnings, we’ve evolved from the original hull design of the classic 25’ to the sophisticated power and performance of today’s tournament proven winners. And unlike some mass production boat builders, we at Contender pride ourselves with a traditional “hands on” boat building philosophy while using the most advanced modern materials and quality components available. But just like the people we aim to please, the serious fisherman, we too are never satisfied. That is why we will continue to do all we can to refine and improve the concept of the ultimate sportfishing boat
