Construction

Avalon Pontoons are built using the best technology available for Pontoon Boat construction. In fact, many of our features are so new and spectacular that they are exclusive to our boats. We take great pride in our fantastic construction and do everything in our power to make Avalon Pontoons the strongest and safest in the industry. Read on to find out exactly what we do.

Exclusive Heavy Duty Features

  • Avalon’s exclusive Matrix 50 heavy-duty 50 gauge marine seat covering with 24% substructure, when compared to competitors, is proven most resistant to rips, holes, and stains.
  • - New Herringbone multi-directional stretch backing promotes quicker recovery
  • - Heavy duty stitching on all fabric
  • - Suspension seating (DECO only)

 

Exclusive Aluminum Seat Frames and Kick Panels

Seat Frame

Aluminum seat frames are stronger and provide more storage space than plastic (commonly referred to as “rotocast frames”). Plastic frames often crack and hold water, but aluminum frames do not. And not only is there more storage space in aluminum seat frames, but the space is more effective. Our aluminum seat frames have Flo thruTM ventilation so your equipment will dry even if the storage area is closed, and also makes mildew and fungus much less likely to occur. Because our aluminum seat frames are so superior, they come with a lifetime warranty, guaranteeing the frames will be successful forever.

Heavy-Duty Nose Cone with First Integrated Splash Fins in the Industry

Our nose cones and splash fins are the absolute strongest in the industry. In fact, with a thickness of 0.100″, double wrapped leading edge, and one-piece construction, it is nearly impossible to break one of our splash fins off. They’re so strong, they’re practically invincible.

Super-Strong Double Full Pontoon Connectors

Unlike our competitor’s “small but skirted” riser connectors, the majority of our pontoon boat models feature full riser pontoon connections on the inside and outside. Our connections fortify the pontoon for continuous strength along its whole length.

Exclusive DECO Series Side Keel Protection

Distinctive welded keels provide an extra layer of damage protection against side impact as well as improving boat performance by decreasing water flow around the pontoon.

Exclusive Interior Drain

Avalon exclusively now includes a drain in the corner of the rear bench that releases water through a drain channel and off the boat. This prevents the otherwise common accumulation of rainwater on the seats that cause stains in the corners over time.

Carbon Canister Flow-Through Gas Fill

We alone, among our competitors, have managed to solve the problem of fuel fill splash back and slowness. Our exclusive carbon canister flow-through eases pressure out of the tank, thereby eliminating splash back and allowing for quick fueling & automatic fueling shutoff.

Reflective Safety Striping

An extra safety feature, our reflective safety striping can be seen at great distances when exposed to light.

Strongest Double Bolted Motor Pod Assembly in the Industry

The entire assembly is made 0.190″ thick with integrated splash. The 2″ thick aluminum-sheathed transom is fully welded, and the whole ensemble is double bolted with at least 16-3/8″ bolts for maximum durability. Besides that, our pod is supported by more heavy-duty hat channel crossbeams than any other motor pod in the industry.

Exceptional Pontoon Tubes

Our pontoon tubes are made with an incredible 0.090″ thickness of H5052 marine aluminum alloy. The strength of the material itself is augmented and air-locked by multi-baffling near each weld. And every weld is done by hand, held up to incredibly strict standards, ensuring every pontoon tube is of the highest quality possible.

The Best in Crossbeam and Deck Construction

Our Deco Series pontoon boats model every cutting-edge heavy-duty hull feature. Using heavy-duty stainless bolts, nuts, and washers, 2″ extreme thickness hat channel crossbeams are attached to the full riser. On top of the crossbeams, our 3/4″, pressure-injected, lifetime guaranteed flooring is bolted down with the finest quality stainless steel bolts and fastened permanently with stainless nylock lock nuts and washers. The result is nothing less than fantastic.

Extra-Solid Bow Eye

Our standard stainless bow eye spans three crossbeams, held on with a ¼” aluminum reinforcement strap. Terrific strength for a haul-out.

Wall Joints

Our super-strong wall joints are welded from all four sides to maximize strength and stability.
