A proven tournament winner and one of the dominant boats in her class, the stepped hull Contender 32 ST combines aggressive lines with speed, fuel efficiency and range. Like all Contenders, the 32 ST is a semicustom boat and it would be unusual to find two that are exactly alike. Boasting an uncluttered deck plan with wide walkways and recessed rails, common features include an integral dive platform, walk-in console with marine head, four insulated in-deck fish boxes (130 and 96 gallons forward, two 60-gallon boxes aft), twin 40-gallon transom livewells, lockable in-deck rod storage (forward), tackle storage, leaning post with backrest, cockpit bolsters, pop-up bow light, lockable electronics storage, removable rear seat, K-plane trim tabs, and a transom door. The forward console seat lifts for access to wiring, and optional forward seating helps make this a versatile family fishing boat. The fit and finish lavished on the 32 ST is as good as it gets. With its nearly 2 mpg cruise at 35 knots (reported), the Contenders range with over 300 gallons of fuel is impressive. Expect a top speed in excess of 60 knots with twin 300 Yamaha 4-stroke outboards.
