Chronicles from Carl...

The warm weather is upon us! I am sure mother nature has a few more reminders for us that we are residents of the Midwest so she will do as she wants to, but boating season is kicking off. We were very fortunate to have the best boat show season we have had since pre-recession days, we have definitely #Noticed an increase in our business. A sincere THANK YOU to all our customers that have trusted us with your business and ordered or purchased a new boat from us already this year. In general, the national sales levels of new boats are climbing and that has put several manufacturers in a bind to meet demand. Some builders have sold out their entire production capacity for the rest of the 2017 model year. Thankfully with our builders and our volume we can still get some more product but it is already placing a bigger emphasis on in-stock units as the season gets going. The best news is that we have lots of new inventory in stock and ready to rig to your specifications for a great year on the water for you and your family. No matter what you need to make the most of your time on the water, from a spark plug to a brand new boat, we hope to see YOU here in our store very soon!

At this time, we currently are running some really amazing promotions with value added specials, and some great financing even though rates look like they will continue rising going forward.  Be sure to come by soon and see if we can help you find your next boat!

We carry a great cross section of Lund and Triton fishing boats, as well as Premier and Palm Beach pontoon boats on display INDOORS for you to check out. With our YYUGE showroom you can always see a couple dozen new boats all uncovered and under one roof. Keep in mind that with the season kicking off, fresh trades and lots of brokerage boats are coming and going every week so we continue to have a nice selection of great pre-owned boats. Some of the boats we have here for storage are for sale as well. Please note that our used inventory typically sells fairly quickly so please call ahead to check the status of any pre-owned boat we have online if you would like to come take a look.

In the shop, the guys are going absolutely gangbusters with spring work and new boat rigging and prep. Let us know if we can help you with any repair or maintenance need that you want to have taken care of before you start the season. You can always use our 24hr boat drop off service, just bring your boat by - day or night, whenever it is convenient for you and we will get your service work completed ASAP!

We want to wish you and your family the best and extend a heart felt thank you to all our sales and service customers for your business and for your loyalty!

"I just wanted to extend a big THANKS to Joe Senior. I called asking some questions about selling my boat to a gentleman in KS. There was no tie to Sportsman's at all, other than I bought it from you originally and thought you might be able to help me. Joe answered all my questions and was incredibly patient, kind, and knowledgeable. I cannot speak highly enough about how well your company has treated my wife and I over the past 10 years. Thank you very much! "

"We had the pleasure of working with Carl on the purchase of a pontoon boat. He went above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied with the deal. There were a few roadblocks and each time Carl found a solution. He is among the best in the sales profession, in any industry that I have worked with. He is very knowledgeable, professional, caring, and a great communicator. We highly recommend Sportsman's Outfitter & Marine and Carl Johnson."

"The folks here are outstanding-I'd give 6 Stars!! I purchased a used fishing boat and Joe, Carl, and Josh treated me as though I bought a top of the line model! The guys are very respectful, courteous, and cheerful. I will certainly call Sportsman's Outfitter & Marine the next time I am ready to purchase. I drove 3-1/2 hours from central Iowa because of their professionalism and dedication to a positive boat buying experience. "

"I recently purchased my second boat from Sportsman's and picked my new Triton up just last week. My buying experience was awesome. I had a lot of questions about all of the new technology out there for new boats from fish finders to power poles. All of the guys were very well versed in those things from how they work to getting it all installed on the boat. Everything was done and done right at the time they said it would be. I would definitely recommend Sportsman's Outfitter & Marine for any repairs you need and for your next boat purchase. "

"I had owned the same fishing boat for 26 years and had decided I needed a slightly larger boat with more storage. Met Carl at the boat show in January and got the impression he was honest and straightforward. Did lots of shopping over the next few months, visited Sportsman's showroom numerous times continuing to talk with Carl. Never felt comfortable at other boat dealerships. Once I decided the Lund 1750 Rebel XS was the model I wanted Carl worked with me to get the best deal possible. You won't find a more honest person to buy a boat from as he never pressured me or tried to sell me something I didn't want. Delivered the boat on time just as promised. Even helped me save more money on accessories after we had made the deal. How many outfits would do that? Save yourself a lot of time and go to Sportsman's to begin with, you won't be sorry!"

"My husband has been looking for a boat and researching for the past year. We live in Northern Illinois, so aluminum is a must. Dave could not find a Lund within a couple hundred miles of where we live. We had been looking at Alumacraft and struck up a fair deal with Cabelas up north. We just happened to be coming down to Lenexa to visit family when we decided to just look around down here. That is when my mother in law pointed us in your direction. The ironic thing is, my in laws are not boaters. We stopped at Cabelas and then headed to Sportsmans to have a look around. When we entered the showroom it was similar to the movies, when you see the ray of sunshine on one particular spot. That spot happened to be a LUND! I think my husband did all he could to not start jumping up and down and raving like a lunatic. We dealt with Carl and he was extremely informative and very honest about the pricing. He came to us with bottom line price, no back and forth. The price was more than fair and there was absolutely NO PRESSURE! I have to say I have never been that comfortable spending that amount of money. Great job Carl, I'm glad you're not a realtor! All jokes aside, it was very pleasant and we are super stoked about our new boat! Thanks again! "

"We just picked up our new 2016 Triton Allure from Sportsman's Outfitter & Marine. From the first day we walked in to Sportsman's until the day we picked up the new boat we knew they had a first class dealership. They also helped us in the sale of our old boat. Carl and Joe III did a outstanding job, 5 stars in sales and service. Thanks again!"

"We have been shopping for a new Lund boat for many years. We were pretty sure we knew what we wanted but never put together the right deal. We were excited to learn that Sportsman's was the new Lund dealer for Kansas City. Even though we had other dealers a little closer, the commitment to customer service was obvious at Sportsman's. Everyone we dealt with was honest and cared about our needs. No one tried to sell us something we did not want. We plan to keep this boat forever so regular maintenance is important. We could see why they earned so many customer satisfaction awards, we will be bringing it down for any work we need done. We are very pleased with our new boat and recommend Sportsman's Outfitter & Marine to anyone needing a boat."
