“Excellent Avalon pontoon 2480 net with 200 hp Suzuki we absolutely have enjoyed every moment on it. We have taken it out every weekend since buying it. Avalon 24 LS Entertainer Triple Toon”
By: Greg Douglasville, GA


“Overall excellent experience. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Due to weather and work schedule, we weren’t able to take the boat out on the lake for about 3 weeks after we got it. The motor didn’t seen to be working right so I took it back to the Boathouse where they promptly found and fixed the problem, Excellent customer service! 08 Skeeter SL 210 ”

“We purchased an Avalon Windjammer April 2016 and our experience was excellent. I must add that working with Howie as our Sales Rep was just fantastic. Howie made our journey very pleasant and he guided us every step of the process. It’s unfortunate that common courtesy has been lost in 21st century sales but He is in a class that far exceeds his contemporaries. Thank you Howie! -Lamar and Lisa Avalon Windjammer 25 Rear Lounge”

“Joe and Tammy were very informative and attentive to our needs. Apex-Qwest LS 822-24 Cruise”
By: Terry Temple, GA


“I found A Boat House on line. Prices were significantly less that other more local boat dealers. Salesman (Rick) did a great job explaining the various triton options. Educated me about the pros and cons of various options. Mechanic was great. Educated me all about the boat before I left the lot. The only upset to the deal was a mis communication on the repairs for my trade in. After a deal was made, I received a call and was informed the repairs to my boat would be about 1,200. I didn’t realize that I wold have to pay for my boat repairs after the deal. I truly do think it was a mis-communication. But it is also important to make sure how much you will be charged for trade in repairs before you make the deal. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. Even with the $1,200, I feel like it was a good price and it is a quality boat that I tried out yesterday and it was great!!! Jim Radle Avalon 24 LS Cruise”

“Initial purchase over the phone took some negotiating, but worth it. Got a good deal, drove 8 hrs to pick it up. Walk thru and set up was somewhat incomplete. But service after the sale (and working out the kinks) with Gary and Chris were fantastic. This was my first pontoon boat purchase and am very satisfied with A BoatHouse and Avalon at this time. Thanks. Avalon Windjammer 27 Rear Lounge”

“We bought our first boat ever from A Boat House, a 2005 Tahoe Q4, two seasons ago and have not had a bit of trouble with it at all. I am very pleased with the sales and service they have provided and this will definitely be the first place we go to when we’re ready for an upgrade. I usually do not post comments like this but with the excitement of another season upon us, it has reminded me this if it were not for A Boat House, we would not enjoy the family time and summers as much as we do now. Thanks guys!!!! 2005 Tahoe Q4”
By: Rick Powder Springs, GA


“We to the Atlanta boat show to look around with no intention to buy. After looking into several dealers and boats, I found A Boat House to have a great quality of boats and some of the best prices. I ordered a boat with the salesman making sure all my needs were met. After placing the order, staff members keep me up to date on the progress of my order and had the boat in earlier than I expected. When I picked up the boat I was treated like family. Everything was explained to me about my new craft and upcoming service details. I highly recommend A Boat House if you’re looking to purchase a Pontoon boat, or have question on service.

“After a nationwide search of Avalon pontoon boats, we finally found the boat we wanted. The only problem was that it was located in Georgia and we were in Texas, 1000 miles away. I made contact with Joe concerning the possibility of a long distance purchase and trade in. He said “no problem, we do it all the time.” My wife and I were still very skeptical about the outcome, but our worries were completely unfounded. In less than 10 days we had the whole transaction completed including the delivery of the new Avalon Catalina and pickup of our trade in. The whole process was handled flawlessly and professionally by Joe and his staff. Many thanks to Amy, Tammy and Chris for their great attention to detail. All the paperwork , title transfers and training was top shelf. My wife and I would highly recommend this fine company to anyone interested in doing business with the best. And…. We love our new boat! Our sincere thanks, Joe. Robin and Carole Abilene, Texas Avalon 24 Catalina Entertainer”

“I purchased a 16′ PaddleQwest pontoon in January from A Boathouse. I can confidently say these folks stand behind their word and deliver outstanding service. The boat was promised by end of March (came straight from the factory) and was at my house in Cary March 26 as promised. A Boathouse delivered the boat from Atlanta and was very professional and friendly. We went through operation of the boat and I was on my way. The boat is very well made with nice upholstery and very rugged structure. By the way, the paddleqwest is a pedal powered/ paddle wheel pontoon with electric motor for when you get tired. It moves right along with the pedals but you can switch to electric when you need a break.. very nice for electric only lakes, Feel free to email me with any questions, I highly recommend this boat for electric only lakes.

“We met Joe and his lovely wife at the 2012 Atlanta Boat Show. After looking and researching for a year we made our decision to purchase our beautiful 26ft. Avalon Electric Lounger Tri-Toon boat at the 2013 Atlanta Boat Show.. The owners of A Boat House in Douglasville Ga. were awesome. They worked with us and got us exactly what we wanted. They are great friendly people. I highly recommend these folks for any marine products you want. I give them five stars. Avalon C-RL”

“My wife and I purchased a 2000 model fish and ski. We had a miscommunication between the mechanic and myself which caused some engine problems. From the very beginning of our problem to the end Joe treated us great and did everything he could have possibly done to fix our problem. Joe and his wife turned a potential bad situation into a great experience for me and my family. A Boat House has earned my buisness permanantly, and I will be sending all my friends searching for boats to talk to Joe and his wife. 2000 Stratos 283 F/S ”

“The Boathouse is a dealership I will definitely do business with again. Joe and Amy went above and beyond to make our buying experience 5 star. From returning emails and calls while I was shopping for a boat to pre-arranging financing, making the boat ready for pickup the day of, and to staying past closing time to fix the lights on my truck so we could take delivery that day. Don’t let the lack of a fancy sales center or big parking lot fool you. They were very well stocked with parts, and had several employees working that day (on a Saturday) to help. While we were working out details of our purchase, there were several couples looking at boats that day from Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama. I can recommend them for your sales, parts, and service needs and only wish they were located on our lake so we don’t have to travel so far to see them. PS: We love our boat . It is everything they promised and we hoped for. 2006 Sea Ray 200 Select ”

“Joe Yates, Owner – presented a detailed analyis of the 2012 Avalon DRL at the 2012 Atlanta Boat Show boat and every item he discussed is 100% true, the boat is fabulous. Chris delivered the boat and completed the PDI and was very thorough and helpful and did not rush me at all.. The actual delivery took place on 2-23-12, very warm and windy 3to 4 foot whitecaps at Lake Sinclair as Joe explained the boat ride was as smooth as silk, no porpoising or water splashing into the boat. The entire experience has been great! When buying a pontoon boat, buy a Avalon triple pontoon! 2012 Avalon DRL”
