Intrinsic Yacht & Ship was chosen to be the exclusive boat dealer for Contender in Maryland in April 2016 & offers all lines of Contender boats for sale. Our location in central Maryland is near Annapolis and allows us to serve both the sportfishing community, most notably Ocean City, MD, and the motoryacht community that is so prevalent up and down the Chesapeake Bay.
Intrinsic has long been recognized as one of the few yacht dealerships and brokerages that is active in the sportfishing community. We have participated in major fishing tournaments up and down the East Coast, and that experience has given our sales staff knowledge and perspective that even the most seasoned fisherman appreciates.
Contender is committed to producing the best fishing boat in the world. That’s why every Contender is crafted with hand laminated solid fiberglass using biaxial and triaxial cloths, structural PVC core sandwich construction for lightweight and superior strength as well as vinylester resins and specialty formulated gel coats for high gloss mirror-like finishes.
But even the best designed boat, with the highest quality of construction materials means absolutely nothing if the hull design is not proven. Every Contender is crafted using our proven deep-V 24.5° deadrise hull that incorporates our reverse radius chine for a dry ride in the roughest conditions. Not only does this create added lift on plane to run faster on less fuel, it also provides a rock steady fishing platform at rest.
A Contender is built by fishermen for fishermen. That means we know how fishermen think. That’s why our interior layouts are clean and unobstructed with one level deck allowing quick and easy movement from bow to stern. Below our oversized decks lie large storage compartments with flush mount gaskets. Polyurethane foam is injected into practically every available cavity acting as flotation as well as a sound deadening benefit. But we know that fishermen are very particular about their boats. As a semi-custom manufacturer, Contender, through your dealer, can make modifications to meet your personal fishing style.
Other noteworthy Contender features include raised transom live wells, integrated flush mount bow rails, anchor locks, walk-through transoms and self-bailing cockpits. And what good would the best fishing boat be without the best outboards to power it? Every Contender is outfitted with Yamaha outboards that are perfectly suited for the Contender model you choose.
