I am an ambassador.

Could I sell my 3DS and then later buy another one and take advantage of the program?

Double no.

Why is that, I thought that the ambassador program was tied to my Nintendo account and not the console itself.

It's tied to the eShop account, which is only accessible from a single 3DS.

No it is tied to the console itself.

Same situation with the DSi: while the DSi and 3DS can both be tied to the same Club Nintendo account, actual ownership of downloadable titles is linked to the DS itself, hence why the transfer application is necessary.

The console you download something on is what holds the license, not your account. While you COULD transfer those ambassador games to another 3DS, you'd have to actually buy the second 3DS beforehand to transfer everything. And I assume also wait for the games to come out; Nintendo may not have worked out anything for transferring ambassador status itself.

However, you can transfer all eShop titles, including the 20 free ambassador games, to another 3DS if you want. However that means you need both at the same time, so it wouldn't help you if your 3DS were to be stolen or destroyed/broken.

You'd also have to wait for the update that activates the system transfer feature.
