In 1972 Avalon began building these pontoon boats in Mason, Michigan. In 1984 Avalon expanded and moved north about an hour down the road to Alma. Avalon decided to set their company apart by taking a vertically integrated approach to the construction of their boats. That means Avalon makes everything pontoons, framing, furniture and more right in their local factory. As a result, Avalon has a much higher degree of control over the production and quality. Like its legendary King Arthur namesake, the "Isle of Avalon," (whose name literally means "produces all things of itself") this company produces all things within its own factories. Therefore, they can build superior quality craft made right here in the USA.
Avalon construction details:
Avalon's highly qualified team of experienced welders, furniture makers, assemblers and quality assurance engineers constantly improve their pontoon boats and sustain the incredible level of quality that the Avalon brand is known for. They have added features like Avalon's exclusive MATRIX 50 heavy-duty 50 gauge marine seat covering with 24% substructure that is tested for strength. Also, Instead of pre-cut cushions they produce our own marine-grade cushion material and add 25% thicker, softer cushions to Avalon's seats. Everyone loves the fact that Avalon has exclusive aluminum seat frames with a lifetime warranty. They have 30% more storage capacity and "Flo-Thru" ventilation from the outside. This well thought out design allows your equipment to dry out faster, even though the cover is on. It keeps the compartment dry so mildew does not become an issue. This expert team Avalon's has developed is one of its biggest asset. Everyone there is committed to making sure every piece of every boat, down to the smallest detail, is perfect.
Avalon boats have heavy-duty nose cones with the industries first integrated nose cone splash fins. We have also developed items like the full riser pontoon connections inside and outside. While others are using small riser connectors, our full risers provide continuous strength along the entire pontoon. Avalon pontoon boats feature the latest technology in hull design. The best crossbeam and deck construction are integrated into Avalon pontoos. Extreme thickness hat channel crossbeams are bolted to the industry's only double full riser assembly.
Besides being luxurious and strong, all Avalon pontoons are certified by the National Marine Manufacturer Association. In order to receive that certification, every Avalon pontoon boat has either met or exceeded the industry's strictest quality and safety standards. Certified boats also must pass rigorous annual inspections to retain their status. According to U.S. Coast Guard statistics, NMMA Certified boats are much safer than uncertified boats.
Avalon's superior customer service:
Avalon's customer service team is exceptional. Avalon states they will "work efficiently and politely to ensure every interaction with our company is a good one. In fact, Avalon has won the NMMA CSI Award 6 consecutive years from 2008-2013 for outstanding customer service and has one of the lowest incidences of warranty claims in the industry."
As if all this is not enough to convince someone Avalon is the absolute premier choice when it comes to pontoons, they offer dozens of models customized to your lifestyle. They have numerous optional packages you can easily rig up on your boat. One of Avalon's most popular customer requests is their watersport options.
