Our custom-fitted Bimini Tops are free-standing shade structures that can make a day at the lake more comfortable and relaxing for you and your guests. A Bimini Top is constructed with a heavy-duty canvas top supported by an aluminum or stainless steel frame. Depending on the size and type of boat, a Bimini Top will have three or more bows running through the top of the canvas. Bimini Tops are designed to be collapsible, allowing you to raise the top when you want shade or shelter from rain, while still giving you plenty of room to move about the inside of the boat. Additional enclosure options include zip-in windows, a windshield, and/or an aft curtain.
Also known as a convertible boat top, a Sun Top attaches to your boat’s windshield and is supported by two or three aluminum or stainless steel bows. They are generally used for protection from the sun or foul weather, and differ from Bimini Tops in that they are attached to the windshield, rather than being free standing. Our Sun Tops are made with high-quality marine fabrics, which are available in a wide variety of colors to complement your personal style. For added protection, inquire about side windows and aft curtains.
Similar to a Sun Top, a Fisherman Top attaches to your boat’s windshield and is supported by two or three bows. However, Fisherman Tops are tall enough for someone to stand underneath, while Sun Tops are not. Fisherman Tops are also shorter front to back than a Sun Top. Our Fisherman Tops can also be modified to have a clear glass windshield and/or a walk-through zippers, as well as side windows and aft curtains for comfort and convenience.
