Biminis and canopies are a Queensland boater’s best friend
The feeling of being out on the open ocean is second to none! But that fun soon stops after hours exposed to the elements. The Gold Coast and Brisbane sun is brutal. After only a few hours you’ll be sunburnt, tired and ready to call it a day. That’s why so many Gold Coast and Brisbane boaters opt for biminis and canopies. While
A bimini is an open-front canvas top that protects the front or cockpit of a boat. Biminis are propped up with a simple frame and lifting system, and can be collapsed when not in use. Not only will a bimini protect you, but also your upholstery and boat seats. A bimini will keep the sun off your carpets and seats, and make them last much longer.
While biminis are great solution for small areas of sun protection, they don’t offer the same amount of protection as a full canopy. Canopies are generally a lot larger than biminis and are often fashioned to create a full enclosure to completely protect passengers from the sun, wind and rain. Full canopies are also the best way to protect your upholstery and internal fixtures. If you’ve invested a lot of time and money into new trimmings, it’s worth investing in a high-quality canopy to protect them. Canopies, however, are fixed and cannot be collapsed.
Biminis and canopies come in a range of sizes and can be ordered custom, to fit any type or size of boat. Biminis and canopies also come in a range of colours, so you can choose a bimini that suits your individual taste and style. We can customise the dimensions and material of your bimini frame to support different material types and bimini sizes. You can choose a nautical colour to blend in, or choose a vibrant colour to stand out from the crowd. Biminis and canopies can even be customised to fit the existing colour theme and trimmings of your boat.
When investing in a bimini or canopy, it’s important to do your research. You need to choose a brand that is durable, weatherproof, colour-fast and long lasting. Cheap biminis and canopies are subject to tearing, mould and fading, and their frames are prone to bending and breaking. Investing in a high quality bimini or canopy will save you lots later down the line.
