Known in this industry for building a wide selection of great pontoon boats, with this Ambassador it appears Avalon took the best of what it has to offer and merged it all together to create the ultimate boat.
First impressions start with the exterior, and this ‘toon gets off to a favorable start with a stylish mix of Deco 2 two-tone aluminum walls, a unique rail pattern, plus the eye-catching Decosport wakeboard tower that includes two large speakers, wakeboard rack and a permanent canvas top.
There is a very high-end feel as you step aboard and make your way through the 27-foot boat. At the helm is everything you need, right at your finger tips including access to the Jensen stereo with Auxiliary and USB ports, a Garmin GPS, plus full instrumentation and switches. Other key features worth noting include the large in-floor ski locker that is over 5 feet long inside, high-end Faux Teak decking and a pop-up enclosure that is built into the rear-facing lounger. Having a 300 horsepower engine on the back tells you two things: this boat is well-built because it can support the power and second, it can really move.
As tested, this loaded Ambassador pontoon appears to have everything you’d need for a great day on the water. Why we love this boat…The electric-powered lounges, first mate chaise bench, full entertainment center, etc.


Just being picky…The latch on the bow gate is safe and family-friendly, but we did experience some minor rattles with it. Decosport tower, premium sound, shore power inverter, under rub rail lights, underwater lights, solid bottom keels, wash down kit, in-floor ski storage and tower speakers.

There is even a PA system for the tower speakers which allow you to talk to your skiers or tubers. Below the comfy seating that uses exclusive Matrix 50 vinyl are aluminum seat bases that give you tremendous storage space and we love that the storage compartments are all ventilated. Just forward of the helm is a fully-loaded entertainment center that includes a low-draw, 4 amp electric fridge, two stainless steel drawers as well as a full sink and faucet. The 25-inch diameter pontoons have high performance lifting fins on both sides of all three tubes for a total of six, plus a side keel for added protection. Maybe a few more permanent cup holders would be nice, but nothing really stands out as missing from this Avalon.


There are two chaise lounges in the bow, plus a third chaise located across from the helm station for the first mate that we felt was a great idea. Plus with just a push of a button, a retractable wine rack with glasses emerges from the unit which is a great way to store these items when you’re not using them. But as comfy as these lounges are, the rear-facing ones in the stern are going to be the two most popular seats onboard.
Up top the heavy-duty and overbuilt theme continues, as our test crew reported all the hidden areas are well-finished. With these rear loungers you have a stereo remote, lighted LED cup holders and our favorite feature is the electric controls that will take the lounger from a flat position to a comfortable reclined angle with just a push of a button.
