Nautique signs deal with water-ski school in Florida


Nautique announced a three year partnership with the Drew Ross Ski Academy in Orlando, Fla.

The academy will exclusively use the Ski Nautique 200 to provide coaching behind the three-event wake for its students. The academy is a full-time coaching facility for students from around the world, catering to skiers ranging from beginners to professionals in slalom and tricks.

"I’m extremely pleased that we are now featuring the Ski Nautique 200 at DRSA,” owner and operator Drew Ross said in a statement. “The 200 has proven itself time and time again to be a world record-breaking machine that simply outperforms all other boats. It is this versatility, and the complete package, that make the Ski Nautique 200 the winning choice.”

“Nautique is thrilled to partner with the Drew Ross Ski Academy in central Florida, a premier water-ski school that will be using the world record-breaking Ski Nautique 200,” Nautique president and CEO Bill Yeargin said. “We know that the students at Drew Ross Ski Academy will have the same experience others have had behind the Ski Nautique 200, with many new personal bests soon to come.”

The academy is a water-ski school in west Orlando just north of Disney World on a private man-made lake.
