This custom 36 Contender is about as close as any serious angler can get to the ultimate high-performance outboard fishing machine.
There are no compromises here. The Contender has more beam, more live wells, more fuel and more fish box capacity than any other boat in this class.
Designed from the ground up for triple engines, the surprisingly weight efficient deep-V hull of the 36 Open is quick to accelerate and delivers a fast and secure ride even in 5 to 6 foot seas.
The cockpit, both forward and aft of the console, is huge with plenty of in-deck storage capacity. The walkways are very wide.
Notable features include two oval 50-gallon transom live-wells, an integrated motor bracket, transom door, a walk-in console storage/head compartment, below deck rod lockers and four insulated fish boxes.
A powerful boat with the stamina to endure serious offshore punishment, triple 250 horse power Yamaha outboards cruise this Contender at an easy 36 knots and reach a top speed of over 50 knots.
Customized for the ultimate fisherman. Twin 150 gallon forward live-wells with 6 pump sea chest. 50 rod holders with 24 in gunnel.
