Looking for a family-friendly center console with incredible fishability? Check out Contender’s 24-foot Sport, an amazing crossover that can still take the water like a hard-core fishing boat, available at Boats Direct USA!

“It’s our venture into a small boat that is a combination boat – you can fish out of it but it’s also family-friendly,” said Mike Collins, Contender’s sales representative for the Southeast. “It’s got a lot of seats on it – rear seats, front seats. You can seat eight to 10 people.  And it’s got a closed head.”

The 24-foot Sport caused a stir when it was introduced in February 2014 at the Miami International Boat Show.

Boats Direct USA in Key Largo is a factory outlet for Contender and the professional staff there can help you sort through the wide range of options for these custom boats. Working with the trained staff at Boats Direct USA will make buying a custom boat easy and stress-free.

The Contender 24-foot is ready to fish at 5,250 lbs. and carries 130 gallons of fuel. With a 22.5-degree dead rise, this deep-V boat makes for an incredibly good ride. Unlike Contender’s other small boats, the 24-foot has a step-down console big enough to install a head.

If you want to chase the fish, the new Contender 24-foot Sport is ideal to take on that competitive fishing trip. But it’s much more than a mere fishing machine. Equipped with all the creature comforts needed to make a day on the water fun and enjoyable, this boat has the right balance of luxury for a sunset cruise or a day of snorkeling.

“You still have the live bait well for fishing, but you can also take your friends along and go water skiing or island-hopping,” Collins said.  “It’s a little more plush than our other boats.”

Contender boats are generally low maintenance as well, built with a complete inner liner that is easy to hose out at the end of the day.

An unusual feature of this fun and practical boat is the live well, installed in the boat above the floor instead of in the floor. This craft offers two jump seats in the stern on either side of the bait well. Forward bench seating and aft seating with additional bilge access, and a bolster seat provide adequate room for at least eight guests.

The 24-foot Contender has hydraulic steering and a custom steering wheel, stainless hardware, four flush-mount gunwale rod holders, sit-under gunwale rod racks, hand-laid fiberglass throughout and a self-bailing cockpit.

Go on a serious fishing trip or take a leisurely cruise to waterside restaurants and clubs; take the kids on a water skiing adventure or anchor at a sand bar. The Contender 24-foot Sport can do it all.
