2003 Contender 36 Open Fisherman

North Palm Beach, Florida

$165,000

36 Contender 2003

This 2003 Contender 36 boasts the same heavily overbuilt construction as on all other Contender boats. It also uses only vinylester resins for maximum blister protection which, combined with bi- and tri-axial fiberglass cloth makes for a very heavy, solid fiberglass bottom construction.

If you qualify as a truly hard-core offshore fisherman, you'll appreciate this 36. Two above-deck livewells in the transom augment another in the cockpit sole. Huge in-deck fish boxes outboard on both sides can handle numerous large tuna. There's an amazing amount of room alongside the console - enough for two large anglers with fish on to pass each other.

Unlike many performance boats that simply add fishing features to an offshore racing hull, Contender makes boats for fishing - then they make them fast. You can expect any Contender to be far more stable in a beam-sea drift, for example, than a performance-cum-fishing boat.
