avalon or citation ? was created by superkev
I am shopping for my 1st Glasspar.
What is the difference between between these two models?
Is one longer than other? I don't know if I've seen a citation or not, and some Avolons are 15' some 17'
Usually they are just called aGlasspar

The Avalon was the first true runabout made by Glasspar and was introduced in the 1955 model year. Boats with that name were produced continuously until 1975 though several changes were made over the years in hull, deck and fittings . Avalons from the 1950s and 1960s were all called sixteen footers but were actually 15' 10" LOA. Those boats made in the 1970s were a new design that was an even fifteen feet LOA. There were no 17' Avalon versions.

The Citation was introduced in the 1960 model year. I am not sure how many years it was produced. The Citation is a slightly bigger boat. They are a true sixteen footer with a wider beam and transom. A distinctive feature is the molded in seating.

I hope this basic information helps you decide which to get. Both are good choices IMHO. :)

IMHO the Citation was a much more finished looking and prettier boat. Wish my Avalon was a Citation.
