Not only is the Contender 35 Step Tournament or 35ST one of the best-looking centre console boats around, it is also one of the best performing. Its performance exceeds all expectations. A true fisherman's boat, the Contender 35ST sits on Contender's self-draining 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.
Just like its smaller brother, the Contender 32ST, the 35ST delivers miles of open flat deck space and the 360-degree fishability that makes centre consoles the top choice for keen fisherman. Not all centre consoles are created equally though, and Contender do it better than most. The room, particularly at the bow must be seen to be believed.
The Contender 35 ST offers an incredible fishing space, suitable for rough water trips out to the outer stretches of the Barrier Reef or off the coast of Western Australia. With the 35 ST trolling for marlin and XOS tuna all over the country is a must on your list.
The 35ST offers multiple underfloor lined storage compartments located at the bow and behind the console. The captain's console is wide and will accommodate larger screens preferred by game captains with a twin screen layout also possible. There is a large seat/sunlounge with storage underneath ahead of the console and bench seating at the transom.
The well-designed leaning post with tackle centre located at the rear sits behind the console. Here you have rod storage and a tackle station offering access to important fishing equipment while the fish are on. 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 and is built to offer captains the ultimate view. The complete second station up top keeps you in control of position and the fish when they are boat side.
Powered by triple 350hp engines, the Contender 35ST is a long-range fishing dream. An open water speed demon topping out at over 70mph. With a fuel capacity of 1,514 litres, you will never be questioning if you should head home early.
