Son Watersports was founded in the fall of 1998 and wrapped up all business in the fall of 2018. Over the years, Son Watersports sold hundreds of ski boats and pontoons. Customer service was always heralded as a key to our success. Son Watersports closed recently when it sold its property.

Mark – President

Mark is a native of the Twin Cities. He started his career in the boat industry in 1993 as a sales manager at a boat dealership and for Nautique Boats based in Indiana. Son Watersports opened its doors in the fall of 1998 anchored by ski boats and pontoons. Mark hits the waters of northern Minnesota and Wisconsin with his family whenever possible. He is an active slalom skier and barefooter. Mark received his certification on PCM engines in 1999.

Dona – Office & Marketing Manager

Dona is from northern Minnesota — also known as Lake Country! Dona heads up our office. She is responsible for “all things paperwork” that run through the shop. Dona has a background in human resources and employee benefits and has a keen attention to detail. Son Watersports centers around family fun which is perfect for Dona since she loves being on the waters of Minnesota and Wisconsin with Mark and their 2 children!

Dave – Sales Manager

Dave is the “point man” in our sales department. He joined Son Watersports in 2005. He has a long history in the world of sporting goods. His management experience includes a career at Sitzmark and Hoigaards in St. Paul in addition to Fitzharris in St. Cloud. Dave loves all outdoor activities including any watersport, hiking, and alpine skiing. He was a long time waterski instructor during his years in the sporting goods industry and his claim to waterskiing fame is going backwards on a trick ski being pushed by the nose of the boat.
