Denison Yacht Sales adds Contender Boats line

Fort Lauderdale-based Denison Yacht Sales was named the South Florida and Great Lakes dealer for sportfishing builder Contender Boats.

Denison will offer the full line of Contender center consoles, including the Open, ST, Tournament, LS, Express, Cabin and Bay models ranging from 21 to 40 feet.

"Growing up a local Florida kid, there was no better center console brand than Contender. I've been proud to own a few and can't wait to be part of the Contender story here in Fort Lauderdale," Bob Denison said in a statement.

Last year, Contender’s 30ST won the Power & Motoryacht title of Best Center Console between 30 and 40 feet.

“Having lived in Fort Lauderdale since I was 10, I’ve learned that if anyone is on the water, they know Contender is a staple in the industry down here,” Denison Contender specialist Kevin Frawley said in a statement. “Being able to represent and sell Contenders really is an exciting opportunity. We can’t wait to make more boaters aware of why Contenders are truly the best center consoles in the business.”
