Contender Boats are built by fishermen, for fishermen. A fisherman earns his reputation one fish at a time. With every trip made and every bait rigged, he gets one step closer to landing the one that will earn him his title. Our reputation has been built in much the same way; building one tough, reliable, high-performance fishing boat at a time. More tournaments have been won, and more records have been broken on Contenders than any other manufacturer in its class. We know that fishermen are very particular about their boats, and as the world’s largest custom boat manufacturer, Contender has the experience and expertise to craft a truly unique vessel to meet your needs.
