Bimini Tops

Bimini tops are an easy accessory that add substantial sun protection for your boat, making them one of the most popular marine shade solutions. Biminis are open-air and collapsible, allowing you to move easily around your boat while it is up, or to simply stow it away when you want full sun. While many other fabrics require frequent replacing in this kind of environment, Sunbrella marine fabrics offer the durability to maintain their performance and appearance through water and sun exposure.
