Contender and CCA Florida Join Forces
To Protect Florida's Saltwater Marine Resources

Since 1984, Contender has been producing the highest quality, most well designed offshore boats. Their growing popularity among true die-hard fisherman is a testament to Contender's reputation and legendary performance. This is why CCA Florida is proud to partner with such a great boat company. Contender recently donated a 28' Tournament Edition Offshore Fishing Machine complete with twin Yamaha 200 HP four stroke outboards and a custom trailer!

Her superior ride is due to increased running surface of the integrated transom which is more structurally sound because it's part of the hull and not a separate bolt-on bracket.

Standard features include a self-bailing cockpit, one piece flush deck, raised livewell, large center console for extensive electronics and up to a 240 gallon optional fuel  capacity for those long offshore runs. This is a true hardworking tournament winner with a long, proud and proven legacy.

This generous donation will allow CCA Florida to continue to raise the much needed funds to protect Florida's precious saltwater marine resources.

If there’s one thing Contender has proven, it’s this: you don’t have to be around a long time to be considered a legend. In just 29 short years, Contender has redefined all that a sportfishing boat can be.

From Contender’s early years, they have 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 prides themselves with a traditional “hands on” boat building philosophy while using the most advanced modern materials and quality components available. But just like the people Contender aim to please, the serious fisherman, they too are never satisfied. That is why Contender will continue to do all they can to refine and improve the concept of the ultimate sportfishing boat.

There is an old saying that states if you’re good at what you do, your reputation precedes you. Well right now, somewhere on the Eastern seaboard, Contender's reputation is busy plowing through 5 foot swells. Contender's reputation is getting someone to the fishing grounds first. Their reputation is making everyone with a passion for fishing, a Contender.

So whether you're partial to the canyons, the Outer Banks or the Gulf, we wish you luck. Because that fish and mother nature aren't going to make it easy. And that's why you buy a Contender.

Please join us in thanking Contender for their generous support of CCA Florida and their commitment to Florida's precious saltwater marine resources.

Stay tuned to find out how you can get a chance
to win this superior offshore fishing machine!!!
