Contender has always been well known for producing some of the best performing center console fishing boats on the water, and the 35ST, goes beyond those expectations.
The innovative dual step design provides dramatic performance increases not only in speed, but also in fuel efficiency, and handling. The 35 Stepped hull’s one level deck, massive fish and storage boxes, and of course the incomparable ride, make this is a fisherman’s dream.
The tower calls you early in the morning. You know the winds will be howling, but that means the fish will be biting. You’re rigged, prepared, and ready to fish with a great crew. Stay in the game with fishability, reliability, and attention to detail on your side. You’re always in the game with a Contender.

Rig your boat to catch your fish with custom outriggers, downriggers, rod holders, electric reel outlets and more to build the fishing machine you’ve always hoped for.
