Avalon Pontoons Joins MRAA as a Platinum Partner

MINNEAPOLIS — The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas announces that Avalon Pontoons has joined the MRAA as a Platinum Partner Member.  

Through Platinum Partner Membership, Avalon Pontoons supports the MRAA, its programs and the opportunities the association provides the dealer body to fuel the industry’s success. Commitments from Platinum Partners like Avalon allow for expanding MRAA’s offerings and create a positive, long-term impact for its members.

“This collaboration is a testament to our commitment to innovation, growth and delivering unparalleled value to our customers,” says Jim Wolf, CEO of Avalon & Tahoe Pontoons. “We strongly believe in investing in the future of the marine industry and there is no better way to do that than with the MRAA.”

Avalon Pontoon Boats, headquartered in Alma, Mich., is a vertically integrated builder, making everything from pontoons to framing to furniture in their facility. As a result, they have a higher degree of control over the production and quality of their products than if they were to outsource their components. Besides being luxurious and strong, all Avalon Pontoons are certified by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA). To receive certification, every Avalon pontoon boat meets or exceeds the industry’s strictest quality and safety standards. Certified boats also must pass rigorous annual inspections to retain their status.

“Our industry is at a pivotal moment in time, and we all have a vested interest in keeping our industry healthy,” adds Wolf. “The dealers who will remain strong through these times are the ones who are committed to better education and planning for success. The MRAA is a great resource to make this happen. This partnership is not just a business alliance; it’s a shared vision for excellence, and we are excited about the limitless possibilities that lie ahead.”

“It is rewarding to gain Avalon Pontoons, another NMMA Certified boat manufacturer, as an MRAA Platinum Partner,” says Allison Gruhn, MRAA VP of Business Development. “Their dedication to safety and quality aligns with our goals to serve the boating community and, by extension, the marine industry as a whole.”
