our story

Karl Jackson and Shannon Ritzert founded Ski-N-Sports in 2005.

With our staff and knowledge of the industry, we have OVER 65 years combined experience.
IT'S BETTER WHEN IT'S WETTER! That's our motto. That's what Ski-N-Sports lives by, because everyone knows a boat is no good on land!
With over 65 years combined experience in the water sports industry, we know exactly what it takes to get (and keep) you on the water. Our legacy is held in the JD Powers award winning boat, Nautique, with PCM top of line engines. We can answer ANY question you have about our boats. We are owned locally by folks who operated the Southwest Nautique warehouse, which serviced and maintained boats for the Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas areas. Whether you need a new boat, a used boat, or service on the boat you have now, we are here to help YOU! Ski-N-Sports Parts & Service is the leading inboard specialist in East Texas.
Certified by PCM and Honda, we have the most up to date information on all of our motors. From small parts to complete restoration, we'll get you back on the water! Come check us out and allow us to show you just how fun the water can be!! For Nautique or Honda Parts & Service, please ask for Matt Henry For boat sales or ski equipment please ask for Karl. We are located at 15050 State Highway 155, Tyler Tx. You can reach us at 903-509-1754 or 903-509-1755
