I didn’t think it was a secret.

I checked it out today. Contender is really stepping up their game in terms of fit & finish and comfort. Glad to see it. They were being left behind by the others.

Mid to high 60s with (3) 425s and full tower. And they claim close to 80 with (4) 425s.

I like it.

Walked all over the boat during the show; love her from top to bottom, new sheerline looks great. A must see for the CC enthusiast.

Curious about the price tag if anyone recalls hearing a number at the show...

Anybody have an interior shot from the console facing forward? I just like to see the amount of space in the bow in front of the lounge chairs.

They’ve had the mold for 9 months, not a secret

It was one of the stand outs at the show.

If the Contender 39ST is one of the best riding Center Console Fishing Boats in the world, then this new 44ST must be unbelievable with its length, steps, and I am guessing 24.5 degree deadrise. Everyone of the top boatbuilders is upping their game in this Make America Great Again economy!

Contender really took their time with this boat. Looking forward to seeing it in person.
