American Water Sports is truly a lake-family operation. We founded our dealership at The Port of Kimberling Marina out of the desire to provide marina customers with a much-needed, convenient outlet to sell or broker their boats.

In early 2010, we decided to take the next step and offer Regal Boats as our first new boat line. Allowing us to reach a completely new group of amazing customers and form many relationships that last to this day. Our success saw us named a top 10 dealership worldwide for Regal in only our 3rd year.

In 2013, we added Godfrey Pontoons to our offerings, selling Sweetwater, Aqua Patio and SanPan pontoons. Godfrey built the first aluminum pontoon boat and is still one of the largest and best known builders in the industry. Here at American Water Sports, we focus on premium-quality tritoons.

In 2014, thanks to the dedication of our staff and continued support of our customers we expanded by opening both our highway showroom in Kimberling City and our Shell Knob location. As part of the Shell Knob acquisition, we took on MasterCraft. MasterCraft is the premium towboat on the market today and fits well with our other premium brands. In our first year selling MasterCraft, we joined the Top 20 Selling Dealers in the World and business is flourishing. We are passionate about water sports and teaching families how to get out on the lake.

In late 2018, we added Barletta Boats to our lineup. From the keel up, Barletta has designed their boats with your on-water experience in mind. They have taken advantage of every opportunity to simplify the process of building and purchasing a pontoon boat. Items that SHOULD be standard on a pontoon boat, ARE standard on a Barletta Pontoon Boat. In fact, Barletta Pontoon Boats have the most standard amenities in the industry…with just the right amount of options.

2022 Has been a year of excitement for us at American Water Sports! The year began with the relocation of our Shell Knob facility into a new space complete with a large showroom and full service center. Shortly after we were fortunate enough to announce the opening of our newest location in Rogers, Arkansas which will bring our full sales and service, and in house pro shop to Beaver Lake. With three locations we aim to bring a high quality of service to all our current and future customers around the SouthWest Missouri and NW Arkansas areas!

American Water Sports is committed to relationships and the boating lifestyle. We are a turnkey opportunity for first-time boaters as well as a comprehensive resource for those looking to expand any part of their boating experience. We look forward to growing and seeing our old and new clients every weekend using the beautiful waters of Table Rock Lake and Beaver Lake as our showroom. Give us a call and let us know you’re coming!

Levi is a Missouri native, born and raised in Shell Knob. He moved to Springfield in 2004 to attend MSU, where he earned his degree in Mechanical Engineering and Hydronic Test and Balance. However, Levi's true passion has always been the water. He has been into boating his entire life, starting with a 14-foot john boat with a 9.9 johnson that he was turned loose on at just 12 years old. Though he was never supposed to leave the cove, Levi often did, and his love for boating only grew from there. Levi's family has always had strong connections to the water, with his grandfather being an excellent fiberglass repairman and marine mechanic. Levi grew up splitting his time between Table Rock Lake and Santa Rosa Beach in Florida, where he developed a love for wakeboarding and offshore fishing. While Levi enjoys selling boats, his true passion lies in the people and relationships he has built around the water. Though he has found himself in other careers from time to time, life has always led him back to the lake and the wonderful people there.

Blake's love for the water and boating began at a young age, growing up in Wichita, KS and spending his weekends at El Dorado Lake or Table Rock. His parents instilled in him a passion for boating, purchasing their first boat while his mother was pregnant with him. From the age of one, Blake could often be found behind the boat on a tube, and as he grew older, he became more involved in the marine industry. In 2014, he started his first job at Shady Creek Sales, Service, and Marina on El Dorado lake, where he gained experience in boat detailing, marina operations, boat rentals, and even assisted with dock work and lift repairs. During the off-season, Blake also took on the responsibility of rigging fishing boats. Through hard work and dedication, he quickly climbed the ranks and transitioned into boat sales in 2016. With his extensive knowledge and love for the lake and boating, Blake takes great pride in sharing his expertise with customers and helping them find their perfect boat. His passion for the marine industry is evident in everything he does. In the Fall of 2023, Blake made the decision to move to the area with his girlfriend, Breana. Both share a love for the lake and have been coming to Table Rock since they were young. Whenever the weather is warm, you can find Blake out on the water, either fishing or boating. When he is not on the water, he enjoys going on hikes with Breana and their German Shepherd, Gemma.
