This 2006 Contender 23 is super clean and ready to go.

No kidding, you buy this boat you are fishing an hour later if you want.

This boat has been very well maintained and it shows. Everything is shipshape and clean, right down to the interior of the hatch covers.

Amazingly soft ride for the size. High enough freeboard so you stay dry.

Boat has a Mercury Verado 250, which is just about perfect for this boat. Reviews I read mentioned that 275s were a bit too much.

This boat is a winner. I believe it is the best riding, most fishable boat in the 23' to 25' class of boats (and I go out on a LOT of boats, doing what I do).

I look forward to hearing about your interest in this boat. Easy to show, so if you want to see it, let me know!

On the Contenders, the decks are clean and uncluttered. There's concealed anchoring gear, pop-up nav. lights and deck cleats, plus under-gunwale cleats below hawsepipes, recessed internal grabrails and underfloor or transom fish and bait tanks. Everything you need but tucked away or built-in is an integral part of the boats.

Just as importantly, the outboard pod isn't too big on these boats, which means you can clear your rod tip and keep the line away from the prop when fighting a deep slugging fish. And this, I add, isn't so common on Yankee fishboats that place the emphasis on performance and, as such, go with extended outboard pods.

Update 3/12/14, I visited this boat recently, she has been stored indoors and covered for the winter, still looks great and can be shown.
