This is a premier wood boat from THE original tournament ski boat builder. Correct Craft, Ski Nautique, and Nautique are names that are imbedded in water skiing history.

Founded in 1925, Correct Craft was the cornerstone builder of boats for water skiing competition and water ski shows. It “owned" this segment of the industry for years, without competitors. Rocketing it to prominence was Cypress Gardens, which opened in 1936. Known as the "Water Ski Capital of the World", Cypress Gardens was home to many of the sport's landmark firsts as well as over 50 world records. But it was best known for the Cypress Gardens Water Ski Show, which featured Correct Craft ski boats.

Founder W.C. Meloon started using the Correct Craft name in 1936. The Ski Nautique name was added in 1961 when they began producing fiberglass water ski boats using a mold they purchased from Leo Bentz.

Correct Craft’s current manufacturing facility, started in 2005, includes two private lakes used to test their boat designs. In 2009 Correct Craft celebrated a milestone, having built 200,000 boats in its history.
