Resort on the water
The Ambassador Entertainer model from Avalon is designed for those who want their own little resort on the water. The basic layout comes decked out from fore to aft with everything you need to have fun with your friends and family.
The base model, Ambassador, is one of Avalon’s finest products. As a Luxury line model, the standard features are top notch. There are a few different configurations of the Ambassador, and the Entertainer option is as expected, for those who want to entertain. And while most boats are designed on some level to entertain, this model is a full-on hosting platform – whether it is just you and the family, or a group of friends.
The swim platform on the stern is spacious and open, with ladders on both sides, meaning no traffic jams for those getting in and out of the water. Seating in the stern is large and luxurious with wrap-around benches on each quarter, including a bench that can be stretched out into a full lounger. Heading through the middle of the boat you have a good sized bar with four seats to the port side. The bar top is Corian, with inset lighting, and the seats are comfortable large buckets, with swivels. The helm station with captain’s chair is to the starboard of the bar, which means that you can still be part of the party even when you’re on the go. Heading forward there are two more benches with enough length to recline, wrap around ends, and a table on the centreline for your drinks and food.

While this layout is designed for those who want to entertain guests onboard, the boat still has the power and performance to keep up with other makes and models that are specifically designed for high-performance. Able to mount up 300 HP, this boat will move when you need or want it to. Whether that’s racing to a great swimming spot, or towing the kids on a tube.
The Entertainer has an enlarged centre pontoon. Instead of the usual three pontoons at 23” in diameter, you get a larger centre pontoon at 25”. This creates a V-shape to the hulls, instead of the normal flat-bottom that people have come to expect from a pontoon boat. The V-shape allows for a much higher level of handling and maneuverability. This model will take corners like a race car, it can ride over waves with no problem, and make a choppy day feel much smoother than any comparable flat-bottomed pontoon boat.
As with all the Avalon products, a wide range of options are available to prospective owners to make sure that you can get the exact vessel you want. There are many shelter options, from a second bimini right up to a full camper enclosure. A wakeboarding tower is a great choice if you or the kids plan on pursuing water sports. Options for the control console include a raised platform to allow you to see over your guests, colour fish finders, chartplotters and a Sirius sound system. And for those that really want to drive in comfort and style, there is even a king’s chair, which has a raised back, large arm rests, a sliding base and a swivel.
The Entertainer is a solid choice for anyone looking to host a great party out on the water. The smooth and superior design and construction combine to make the Avalon Ambassador Entertainer the best selection for anyone in the market for a fun and unique way to host friends and have an amazing time on the water.
