Default 2008 33/35T Contender w/2014 Engines - REDUCED

2008 Contender 33/35T – When the boat came out it was called a 33T but the LOA is @ 35. The same boat is now sold as a 35T

I am often asked about the color of the boat, which is a very very light blue (looks white in some light) hull, deck and interior. The bottom is stars and stripes blue. NO BOTTOM PAINT. All cushions and top/curtains are white and give the boat a very nice look.

Here is a pretty inclusive list, but I have surely missed some stuff. Boat is ready to fish today.

This boat is in IMMACULATE condition and stored under a shed on the trailer at all times. I spend more time waxing and washing it than I do fishing on it, which is the reason for the sale.


NEW PRICE $149,500

Thanks, simply had a local upholstery shop measure the open space and make it to fit inside. It has worked really well and holds 3 type 1's on each side easily.

Why the new powerheads on such new motors?

This is bittersweet.

Nicest Contender I have ever fished on. I've told Craig this, but I will say it here again.


This boat is better than new. I don't know how he lets go of his boats every few years after putting so much work and money into them.

Super nice boat.

Craig is super super particular about his boat and will not have anything that's less than perfect. This is a boat you can buy sight unseen and be delighted when you pick it up.

Just to confirm, 2014 engines with new power heads and warranty until 2020.

Stuff happens with outboards, thus the benefit of the long warranty

Engines being serviced now and ready to fish !!
