As pontoon boat sales have grown exponentially and wakesurf boats have gained in popularity, families who desire the benefits of both have been faced with the choice of buying two expensive boats or choosing between (a) the characteristics of a pontoon boat, including a comfortable ride at all speeds, high speed capability, great wave handling and room for the whole family or, (b) a dedicated wakesurf boat that can create the waves wakesurfers desire but lacks the room and versatility to be the all-around family cruising boat.
Unlike any other craft ever developed, the versatile Avalon Waketoon – Surf Series now solves this problem. The industry first Waketoon is a true triple pontoon boat with no mono hull so it maintains the comfortable pontoon ride people expect. It uses a new patent pending pontoon design with an integrated rocker and shape along with contoured wake plates to enable desirable waterflow.
Then Waketoon is combined with the Volvo Penta Forward Drive (V-8 I/O), consisting of two forward-facing, counter-rotating props, with a unique variable trim giving it the distinct capability of enhancing the wake form by pulling the rear down. This eliminates the shore damaging heavy ballast tank system that also degrades handling and creates a time-consuming fill and drain process. The result is a totally innovative boat that is an all-around cruising boat with a wake shaping system to create the perfect wakesurfing wake that can even accommodate two surfers to surf on both sides!
