Learn about waketoon

Avalon & Tahoe Manufacturing and Volvo Penta, a global manufacturer of integrated marine propulsion systems, have joined forces to deliver the versatile Waketoon Surf Series Pontoon boat which combines the most sought-after benefits of both a high-performance pontoon boat and increasingly popular wakesurf boats into one exciting combination watercraft. The boat made its public debut at the Minneapolis Boat Show, January 23-26, 2020, where it was just named a 2020 Innovation Award winner by the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

Still classified as a true performance pontoon boat with no monohull, Waketoon offers all of the modern amenities that today’s consumers expect, including a comfortable ride at all speeds, optimal wave handling and ample room for entertaining friends and family. What differentiates this unique craft is a new patent-pending pontoon design with an integrated rocker and shaper along with contoured wake plates to enable desirable waterflow. There is no heavy ballast tank system, which leads to improved overall handling and the elimination of a time-consuming fill-and-drain process.

Another distinct feature of Waketoon is the capability for tandem wakesurfing on both sides of the wake, instead of the ability to only surf together on the same side.

It is the first pontoon boat combined with the award-winning Volvo Penta Forward Drive, designed with forward-facing dual counter-rotating props under the boat with an adjustable-tilt drive. Since its launch in 2015, the versatile Forward Drive transformed the gasoline stern drive boating segment and earned recognition for superior fuel economy, speed, range, acceleration and maneuverability in thousands of boats on the market today. Waketoon Surf Series Pontoon also integrates Volvo Penta’s lightweight, high-performance next-generation gasoline engines which are designed for simple serviceability. A key feature of these engines is Easy Drain, a raw-water draining system that can be activated with a single knob to extend the boating season even longer into the year.
