CONTENDER HISTORY & OVERVIEW

Established: 1984
Located: Homestead, FL
Construction: Fiberglass
Category: Center Console, Express Fishing Boats
Worth Noting: Each Contender is crafted using their proven deep V – 24.5 degreed deadrise

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.
