The Contender 28 Sport boat is the best in its class with the most available space. No matter if you are taking the boat out for a fishing tournament, a fishing trip with the family, or a day out on the water for a bit of fun and leisure. This boat was made to the same level as the larger Contender Tournament Series on the market, but with the features that matter most for the family to enjoy some leisure time.
Smaller boats do not always get the credit for being powerful. Contender is a company looking to change that mindset with not one, but two motors powering the Contender 28 Sport. Other boats may seem fast, but this one has power and quality where it counts with two Yamaha 300 HP outboards ready and waiting to launch you and your guests across the water. No matter the condition of the water, you are assured to have a smooth and dry ride the whole time you are on the Contender 28 Sport. You will leave others in your wake every time you power up this remarkably agile vessel.
The designers at Contender understand what the fisherman and the leisure boater want from their boats, and they deliver on both accounts with the Contender 28 Sport. When you board the boat, you will immediately notice the wrap around seating at the bow of the vessel, but one thing you will not see is a lot of overly designed aspects. The seating is quite basic, but still offers the support needed for a comfortable ride. For fishing, the seats act in a different way. The bottom seats are folded down to enable the fisherman to get right to the edge of the Contender 28 Sport to reel in the big one with enough leverage to keep stable at all times. The entire seating system has been designed to deliver maximum usability without compromising on overall comfort.
Driving the Contender 28 Sport is remarkably easy compared to other larger boats. The controls are straightforward and not overly fancy, so even the novice can understand how to use them.
Boats today are packed with a myriad of features used to entice buyers, but what happens is that they are blinded by the flash, and they neglect to look for the most important features. The Contender 28 Sport has been designed with everyone in mind. The fisherman and all of the family members will always remain comfortable onboard the vessel due to the best features being utilized. The first feature that will likely catch you eye is the Frigid Rigid cooler that slows away when not in use. It simply slides out for use and can keep your drinks cold for days. The other feature is a little harder to see at first glance, but just as important. Unlike other vessels that are comparable to the Contender 28 Sport, it comes with a fully functioning head to allow for a bit of freshening up while out on the water. It may seem like a small detail, but it is often the smallest details that make the largest impact.Manufacturer Provided Description
