Tired of hiring a boat and captain to go off shore fishing? Want your own boat to win that tournament in? Offshore fishermen have known about the incredible reputation of Contender boats for many years and consider it to be one of the best sport fishing boats on the market. Atlantic Yacht and Ship has two Contenders waiting to haul in that fish that tips the scales at the dock.
In just 25 short years, Contender has redefined all that a sportfishing boat can be. Since 1984, Contender has been producing the highest quality, most well designed boats. Their growing popularity among true die-hard fisherman is a testament to Contender’s reputation and legendary performance. Contender 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, Contender pride themselves with a traditional “hands on” boat building philosophy while using the most advanced modern materials and quality components available.
“Contender was built around tournament fishing, and grew from earning the reputation of building tournament winners. It takes more than just luck to win a fishing tournament. It takes skill, passion, and determination with the help of a high performance machine.” stated Les Stewart Jr., director of marketing for Contender boats.
A Contender is built by fishermen for fishermen. They know how fishermen think. Contender boat’s interior layouts are clean and unobstructed with one level deck allowing quick and easy movement from bow to stern. Below their 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. Every Contender is crafted using their proven deep-V 24.5° deadrise hull that incorporates our reverse radius chine for a dry ride in the roughest conditions. Not only does this create added lift on plane to run faster on less fuel, it also provides a rock steady fishing platform at rest.

This feature-rich center console designed for triple-engine power delivers high-octane performance and no-excuses fishability.
