30 Step Hull

Contender 30' Step Hull

Contender has always been well known for producing some of the best performing center console fishing boats on the water, and the new 30ST, goes above and beyond those expectations. The innovative dual step design provides dramatic performance increases not only in speed, but also in fuel efficiency, and handling. The boat holds its bearing, but when asked, responds quickly and smoothly without slippage or delay. The 30ST is everything an angler dreams of with its one-level deck, massive fish and storage boxes, and of course the incomparable ride. The new 30ST is a faster more fuel efficient relative of the 30 T. It’s high performance dual stepped hull will get you on the fish first without sacrificing the legendary offshore capabilities of the Contender brand. With power options of dual Yamaha F300-hp, V-6, 4.2L four-stroke outboards, and dual F-250, V-6, 4.2L four-stroke outboards you can expect the 30ST to be first to the fishing grounds, without emptying your wallet. Standard fuel capacity on the 30ST is 265 gallons, giving it a range well in excess of 400 miles depending on conditions and driving style. When compared to its sister model, the 30T, the 30ST is estimated to see an 18% increase in operating efficiencies and a 10% increase in overall performance thanks to the innovative stepped hull design. Additional features of the 30ST include a larger side-entry console option with electric freshwater head and shower, 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. As with all other Contender’s, each 30ST is built to order with many other custom options to make your 30ST a truly one of a kind offshore performance vessel.
