Fish Tale Boats has always picked the best boat builders in the country, including Chaparral, Grady-White and Robalo.

Now, the Southwest Florida boat dealership selected an additional line of top-end boats to its lineup this spring: Avalon.

Headquartered in Alma, Mich., Avalon has built luxurious pontoon boats for more than four decades. Avalon pontoon boats are known for their craftsmanship and style, which made them an obvious choice for Fish Tale.

Luxury pontoons

Forget your preconceived notions of older-model pontoon boats. The Avalon pontoon boats represent a new generation of pontoon boats that are luxury, high-performance boats.

You may be surprised to learn that Avalon pontoon boats can be outfitted with a wide variety of options, including plush lounges, gas grills, wakeboard racks and water slides. Your children or grandchildren will love zipping down the slide and you can entertain friends on the water while grilling steaks and sipping on cold drinks.

Avalon pontoon boats take you wherever you want to go in comfort and style. Sunbathing, fishing, swimming, waterskiing and cruising around are some of the fun activities you can do in Avalon boats year-round in Florida.

What makes Avalon special

In addition to the boats, Avalon also makes parts such as the furniture. That’s important because it gives the company better control over quality than if it bought the parts from an outside source.

Besides being luxurious and strong, all Avalon pontoons are certified by the National Marine Manufacturers Association. Certified boats meet or exceed the industry’s strictest quality and safety standards and pass rigorous annual inspections to retain their status.

Highly qualified welders, furniture makers, assemblers and quality assurance engineers constantly improve Avalon boats and sustain the quality that the brand is known for. You can learn more on Avalon’s website at https://www.avalonpontoons.com/.

Find the Right Pontoon

You can find the Avalon pontoon boat that’s right for you at Fish Tale Boats in Fort Myers. The longtime dealership owned by the Fricke family started carrying the Avalon line in April.

The Frickes recently relocated Fish Tale from Fort Myers Beach to the former Scanlon Acura property at 15581 South Tamiami Trail, a larger and more convenient location near the corner of U.S. 41 and Briarcliff Road in Fort Myers. The company recently opened a second location in Naples located at 3105 Davis Blvd. Naples 34104.

The seven-acre site has more than 100 boats on display from top-selling boat builders including Avalon. The renovated 14,000-square-foot Fort Myers state-of-the-art sales and service center includes the latest technology for boat maintenance and repairs, including a new hydraulic trailer, forklift and hoist capable of lifting boats as long as 38 feet.

A new fleet of trucks and mobile vans can be dispatched to handle any job for dockside service at many marinas or to pick up boats.
