Length w/ Pulpit:
A proven tournament winner, the Contender 31 Open is a brawny, top-quality fisherman whose meticulous finish and high-performance capabilities placed her in the forefront of large center console fishing machines. The high-tech hull is vacuum bagged and cored above the waterline with wide reverse chines and two lifting strakes per side to provide a dry ride. A single-level cockpit makes the Contender an easier boat to move around than those center consoles with larger consoles. Features include an integrated dive platform with ladder, two 40-gallon livewells, transom door, deluxe leaning post with rod holders and tackle center, in-deck fish boxes (two fully lined 400-qt. boxes forward, two 225-qt. boxes aft), recessed bow rails, raw-water washdown, gunnel rod holders, cockpit rod storage, recessed trim tabs, walk-in console with marine head, cockpit bolsters and an anchor locker. Note optional fuel capacity to 400 gallons. The cabin top of the 31 Cuddy model provides an excellent casting platform. A fast ride in the most challenging conditions, the Contender 31 will reach over 45 knots top with twin 250hp Yamaha outboards.
Overview Semicustom fishing machine with high-performance hull, best-in-class construction puts upscale anglers in the winners circle.
Features Standard fishing features include raised livewell, walk-thru transom, leaning post with tackle center, two large-capacity forward fishboxes, two aft fishboxes.
