New-boat introductions have been scarce at the Miami International Boat Show in recent years, but that changed in a big way this year

Contender debuts a bay boat

To further diversify its fleet, Contender has come out with its first bay boat — a single-outboard 25-footer that rides a stepped hull. The Homestead, Fla., builder — known for hardcore, bare-bones fishing boats — in 2011 branched out with the introduction of three boats that cater to the cruising crowd: the 32 LS (Luxury Sport), 35 LS and 39 LS. With the 25 Bay, the company now is targeting inshore anglers. The new boat draws just 12 inches, displaces 3,200 pounds and carries 90 gallons of fuel.



Minor 36 Offshore

The new Minor 36 Offshore will replace the 34- and 37-footers in Sarins Boats’ fleet of all-weather planing pilothouse boats. The Finnish builder expects the 36 to debut this August in Europe and a few months later in the United States, says Carl Skarne, president of Skarne Marine in Milford, Conn., the U.S. Minor dealer. The 36 joins a lineup that includes the 25, 28 and 31 Offshore.
