About Barkley Watersports and Our Team 

Owner Chase Schrecker with some of the "Dock 3 Babies" at Lake Barkley Marina

Barkley Watersports was founded in 2016 by Chase Schrecker. The company may be young, but we are not new to the Lake Barkley/KY Lake/LBL areas or boating!

We both grew up around the water and consider ourselves "boat people."  We love everything about Cadiz, KY and the surrounding communities, and our longtime dream has been to live at the lake.  

Chase was raised on the gulf in Florida.  He has always enjoyed jet skis, especially during hurricane season!  He has been working on jet skis since he was 13-years-old.  He enjoys tubing and wake boarding, and his favorite boat is a Boston Whaler.

Crystal grew up in Kentucky and her family has been "weekend warriors" at Lake Barkley since she was 8-years-old.  She has always enjoyed boating, tubing, water skiing, and wake boarding.  Her favorite boat is a Hatteras. 

We are especially proud of the hard work we did over the course of 2 years ripping out and replacing everything in our houseboat, which was another longtime dream we shared!  We currently only have two babies (furry and four-legged): Sweet Summer is a 6-year-old black and tan coonhound/beagle mix, and Bossy Baby Sandy is a 5-year-old boston terrior. Even our babies and their buddies love boating and the water. They can never seem to get enough of it!

We appreciate the opportunities and support we have been given by family, friends, and business partners throughout our journey starting Barkley Watersports, LLC.  We are living our dream, and we look forward to meeting and sharing the lake experience with you and your family.  Please let us know how we can help you!
