Since 1984, Contender has been committed to producing high quality products, having built a great reputation on the success of their original 25’ boat. While Contender has maintained pace with new technology and the sophisticated power and performance of today’s tournament proven winners, they have not strayed from what made their original hull such an offshore success: the 24.5 degree deadrise.

Contender also takes pride in their traditional “hands on” boat-building philosophy while using the most advanced modern materials and quality components available, but still providing a semi-custom built boat at the customer’s request.
