AM Skier Services

Ron Tanis is the last “active” member of the original American Skier Boat team. The original owner, Ken Elkind founded American Skier back in 1975 with the first 18′ Skiers coming out as 1976 models from a modest shop in Opa Locka Florida. Tanis became involved as a dealer serving the South suburbs of Chicago in 1979. Between 1979 and 2001 Ron Tanis has served as Dealer, Distributor, Vice President and Owner of American Skier boats. American Skier Boat Corporation is no longer in business. Tanis R & D continues to offer support to any American Skier owner, we are happy to assist you and help keep these classic ski boats running!
