Even though enjoying the sun is one reason people buy boats, sometimes it's nice to have a little shade on the water (or a way to be protected against a rain shower). A bimini top is one option to consider. A bimini top offers a partial roof over your boat and usually comes with a high-quality fabric that may be UV resistant. These tops can be stored on your boat when not in use. When you by a bimini top, make sure the parts—such as straps or fittings—are durable and able to stand up to wet conditions. Bimini tops also come in a variety of colors and fabric designs so you'll be able to find one to match your boat and your personality.
