Our Client came to us wanting to give their 1990 Ski Nautique boat new life. They had a new color scheme in mind and wanted to update the exterior and interior of the boat, and LandCraft Marine provided the end result the Clients dreamed of. Ski Nautique boats are very well built, popular, sea worthy and retain value. Restoring an older Nautique, Malibu or MasterCraft boat is oftentimes MUCH cheaper than buying new. We love restoring these quality wakeboard boats. Instead of buying new, design a boat through a manufacturer website, keep the picture and let us provide a boat restoration quote to have your boat look just like your design... and vs. paying MSRP on a new boat, you'll have enough money left over to buy a new truck to pull your restored boat with!
The photos of our Ski Nautique restoration begin with the process where we removed old decals and striping, removed old upholstery and carpet, and prepped the boat for it's new color, which was chosen by the boat owner. At the time of restoration, the owner opted to keep the boats trailer in its original color, however, LandCraft Marine does offer boat trailer refinishing to match the color(s) of the boat.
In the after pictures you will see the process of color refinishing take place, and watch as we transform the boat to fit a beautiful color palette, including decal applications, new upholstery and carpet, with upholstery featuring custom embroidered logos of the boat brand, and we also refinished the teak swim deck. Our client loved what we created with his ideas and specifications.

The Correct Craft Legacy, 1925-2008...
Correct Craft was the largest supplier of boats to the U.S. Navy in World War II. In 1960 the company purchased the first fiberglass inboard from Leo Bentz, which eventually became today's Ski Nautique. In 1990 the Ski Nautique deck was changed and featured a sloping transom and the widest beam of any tournament inboard in history. Correct Craft has been the premier name in competitive water skiing; Today, their Ski Nautique remains the benchmark by which other inboard tow boats are measured.
