Welcome to almost 12-metres of adrenaline pumping, wave jumping, heart pounding, chest thumping centre console, created for range, so you get to the spots no one else can. Welcome to the Contender 39 Step Tournament.

Riding on a self-draining hand-laid fibreglass hull, 11.88 metres long and 3.30 metres wide this is a complete fishing battle wagon. It rides superbly thanks to the twin Stepped Hull which decreases planning time, flattens the bow lift of a conventional hull, and aids top end speed across the water. It also improves turning stability. A true performance fishing hull.

The Contender 39 Step Tournament has custom options available to make your fishing boat your own. Design your boat’s electronics and console, rod holder placement, outrigger type, and other custom choices to create your dream machine. Every hull is hand-made, not an automated assembly line. Chasing tuna wide offshore, dropping baits on deep canyons, or chasing marlin, you can do it all.

There are multiple underfloor, lined storage compartments, located at the bow and behind the console. The captain’s console is wide and will accommodate multi-screen layouts. There is a small seat at the front of the console and a leaning post/seat behind capable of accommodating three. More storage can be found under the seats, so you never have to go without. You can option up a marine toilet inside the console.

A tackle centre is located at the rear of the helm seat. The transom includes twin live wells while overhead is the standard hard T-top providing protection and an excellent location for outriggers and radar arch.

Option up with Contender’s Custom Fishing Tower. This addition sits on top of the hard top offering a view for miles. The complete second station up top keeps you in control of position and the fish when they are boat side.

With a max engine configuration rating of 1600hp, the Contender 39 Step Tournament is a real rocket across the water. With a standard 1,892 litre fuel tank capacity, your boundaries will know no limits.

About Contender Boats

Contender are a U.S manufacturer with over three decades of experience building the world’s finest semi-custom sportfishing boats. Boats that are carefully engineered and meticulously hand-crafter. Not because it is the east way, but because they have a reputation to uphold. A reputation of building boats that out-perform and out-last. A reputation that drives Contender to push the envelope even further, every day. 

Contenders are built for fun, built to fish, and built for you! Every Contender is built with hand laid fiberglass using a multi-directional fabric and foam cored solid glass stringer system. The hull is laminated solid fiberglass using biaxial and triaxial cloths, structural PVC core sandwich construction, vinyl ester resins and specially formulated gel coats for a high gloss mirror like finish.

Every hull includes raised transom live wells, flush mount bow rails, a bow anchor locker, and a self-bailing cockpit. Unlike some mass production boat builders, Contender pride themselves on keeping this experience personal. Your Contender is made for you. Your experience is hands on. To customise each component of the vessel from hull size and power, to console and electronics packages. Right down to down to the type of stitching on your upholstery.

You can choose custom hard tops with full towers, stand on consoles, or canvas tops to fit your tastes and accommodate a variety of styles and applications. Console options include vertical rod holders, electronics mounting layout options, customs witch locations, and all-around toe kick. A variety of colours and finishes are available with custom styled stitching patterns for forward and rear seating. Rig your electronics for fishing, navigation, general comfort, and personal convenience. Contender provide the options to suit your needs.

Being a semi-custom builder allows Contender to craft boats that excel in tournament fishing, family outings, commercial work, and everything in-between. It allows them to work behind the scenes to ensure each boat delivers the ultimate performance, strength, durability, and comfort you expect from a Contender. 35 years of experience gives Contender the runs on the board.
