About Us

Sportsman’s Outfitter & Marine was established in 1995.  Over the years, we have evolved from a full-line outdoor sporting goods dealership featuring Boats, Engines, Hunting, Fishing, Camping, and Archery equipment; to our business today focused on new and used boats accompanied by the parts and accessories to go with them.  Sales and Service go hand in hand at Sportsman’s, which is not the typical model of our competitors. 

We originally were founded as a full line exclusive Tracker Marine dealer, but we parted ways with Tracker Marine (now White River Marine) Group in 2010.  You may ask us about that any time you wish.  One great advantage for us is that we have been privileged to represent several other respectable lines of boats along the way.  This gives us some fairly unique knowledge when you come to us needing service or seeking to purchase your next boat.  We are very proud to carry products from Lund, Crest, Bayliner, and Premier, all powered by Mercury and Mercruiser.  However, we can expertly compare and contrast what we offer versus Triton, Harris, Tahoe, Sun Tracker, Ranger, Landau, Tracker, Lowe, Suncruiser, Sea Ray, Maxum, Glastron, Cypress Cay, Rinker, Crownline, Nitro, Weeres, Stratos, Yamaha, Boston Whaler, G3, Caravelle, and many others because we have knowledge of those brands through our collective experience. 

The world turned into a pretty harsh place over the past decade for those of us who make our living selling leisure. There is no doubt that some industry challenges still remain, but things have changed, the economy has largely rebounded, and times have improved significantly for most of us left in the marine business.  We are proud to have persevered through some very big changes in our industry.  Most of the individual dealers and even several of the actual brands of boats we used to compete against are simply gone.  Today in major markets like Kansas City you will find just a select few independently owned boat dealers and then typically one or more “big box stores”.  Our commitment is steadfast to offer the very best boats available to the Kansas City area and as importantly, back them up with the very best service department.  The overall ownership experience matters at Sportsman’s.  You will not find a pushy sales person here, nor will you feel the vacuum of a big-box chain type atmosphere.  You will find friendly, experienced professionals eager to help answer your questions and find the right fit for your individual needs.  You will work with a manager or an owner of our business, and collectively we will do whatever we can to help you.  Our local, family-owned business relies heavily on repeat and referral customers, and we recognize that and do our best to earn those every single day.  If there is anything we can do to help you that is even remotely related to the boating lifestyle, give us a call or stop by soon.  As you have noticed on our homepage we are growing.  We have moved into a brand new building, we have signed several new boat lines, we are acquiring and developing more property around us, and we are very excited about the future of our company.  We look forward to earning your business.
