Just like a rag-top convertible, a bimini top provides protection from the elements when you want it and simply drop the top when you don't. These biminis are easy to install either directly to the frame or decking, and are far superior to umbrellas by providing shade or shelter for the entire boat. Sets up in seconds and it easily stores across the bow or stern. You can't go wrong with having a bimini top! Not recommended for running class III and above with Bimini up. Oversized shipping charges apply.
