1. Tube Rolling

Check out the first step in the pontoon building process: Rolling metal to shape the sides of the pontoon tube.

2. Seaming and Joining

Building a pontoon is no walk in the park. See what goes into joining and seaming the best pontoon parts in the business.

 

3. Welding

Good welding is one of the secrets to great pontoon construction. See how Avalon takes welding to the next level during our manufacturing process, and why you should look at a pontoon boat’s welding before purchasing.

4. Constructing the Nose Cone

The nose cone is the first part of the boat in the water. It takes the most beating. That’s why it’s crucial for Avalon’s nose cones to be crafted and constructed carefully and precisely.

5. Nose Cone Insertion

After creating the tube and the nose cone, it’s time to put them together. See how we give consumers an edge-free surface.

6. Installing Keels and End Caps

End caps are another important part of constructing our pontoons. These components allow for mounting accessories and add to the strength and rigidity of the pontoon.

7. Risers

Risers constitute the distance between the tube itself and the decking. Precise riser construction is another step in creating the perfect pontooning experience for our customers.

8. Dip Tank Test

Ever heard of a dip tank? This is a pontoon boat manufacturing tool that lets us check each pontoon tube for leaks. Wherever we see bubbles, we go back and make repairs.

9. High-Performance Lifting Fins

Lifting fins add to a boat’s overall performance and the strength and rigidity of the tube. These optional additions help with lift during take off for the ultimate pontooning experience.

10. Center Tube Construction for Tri-Toons

“Tritoons” have an extra tube in the center of the boat to aid in buyoncy and performance. Check out the extra step that Avalon tri-toons go through in our luxury boating facility.
