What Kind of Pontoon Boater are YOU?


We offer several options in pontoon Bimini tops.  All are great tops and all will achieve your desired end, which is to get a top on your boat and get out of the sun. How do you know which one is right for you?  The answer to that question depends on several factors including the type of boat you have, your intended use, and your personality.  Personality, really?  Let’s have a little fun with explaining the types of pontoon tops that we offer and see where YOU fit.

The Traditionalist

You just want a regular top.  Most pontoons take a top that is 48” high, 8’ long, and fits mounting widths between 91 and 96”.  We stock popular sizes in round tube Bimini tops and square tube Bimini tops.  Having stock means we can ship your top the same day that you order, and you don’t have to wait.


Now, just because you are traditional and just want a regular 4 bow top, that doesn’t mean that you stop having options.  You can customize your top according to material and color.  We also offer other sizes including 9’ and 10’ lengths, and even 54” heights.

Need a light cut-out on your pontoon Bimini top?  You guessed it—we have that too.

The Conservationist

You have a frame that is still nice and you just want to replace your canvas.  No problem.  We have a replacement canvas that’s very easy to use with your existing frame.  Zippers make installation easy.  Worried about the fit?  Don’t be—our canvas fits snugly, like the original.  In these, we offer 8, 9, or 10’ lengths and heights of 48 or 54”.
