As part of its ongoing campaign to supply savvy sportfishing enthusiasts with offshore fishing boats that combine optimum performance with greater fuel-efficiency and environmental friendliness, Contender Boats introduces the newest member to its highly acclaimed Contender 39ST line, the 39ST. Featuring the same innovative, dual stepped-hull platform offered on her two smaller sibling models (32ST and 35ST) the 39ST delivers improvements in fuel efficiency, running speed and performance not found on competing models. The dual stepped-hull platform improves the 39ST’s operating efficiencies by an average of 18-percent while boosting overall performance by 10-percent. We’ve accomplished all this without sacrificing Contender’s legendary offshore handling and performance capabilities. Power options include dual or triple Yamaha F350-hp, V-8, 5.3L four-stroke outboards or triple F-300, V-6, 4.2L four-cycle outboards. Offering standard fuel capacity of 500 gallons, as well as dramatically improved fuel efficiency, the new Contender 39ST boasts a range well in excess of 500 miles. Additional features of the 39ST include a larger side-entry console option with electric freshwater head and shower and flush-panel electronics with plenty of space to handle two large LCD screens. A forward bench seat with insulated storage and a helm pod finish out the console. Just like the other T-series boats, all T-series options are available interchangeably with the ST line. Large livewells with sea-chest plumbing, forward U-shaped seating, forward island seating, removable rear bench seats and numerous helm seating options make the 39ST a truly custom, one-of-a-kind, offshore performance vessel. This step hull Contender gives this 39′ vessel the efficiency and speed to keep you in front of the competition.
