A New Bimini For A Cruiser Headed To Florida

This Cruisers-brand cruiser is headed for Florida!  Its owner wanted Black Dog Design to design and build a new bimini top, frames, and enclosure panels that would be both flexible and durable for the boat’s new home.

Because of the environment in which the boat will reside, very careful attention was paid to the materials used in the construction process.  The new bimini/enclosure features a 1″ stainless steel frame with all stainless fittings. The fabric is Sunbrella Clarity, which is a new product from Glen Raven designed to be both waterproof and to slough-off grime on the outside in environments where fabrics are difficult to maintain. Gortex thread, which will not break down with the sun’s UV rays, was used all around. Strataglass was used for the windows, because it is a dimensionally stable product specially treated for scratch resistance, because it is very optically clear, and because of its durability and longevity in harsh environments.

A Tall and Wide New Cruiser Bimini

Black Dog Design’s customer needed a large bimini for their cruiser, one that would maximize the interior space on deck, while at the same time, being tall enough so that one didn’t have to stoop over to walk under the canvas.

In this view, you can see the supports from the frame spaced close enough apart to not let the top hold water.

The project involved mounting the new frame as wide as possible and building it tall.  The result was a large bimini that both provides a great deal of shade as well as good access around the cockpit.

This new bimini provides a large amount of shade to the customer and his family. Beautiful top.

This design could also be adapted to a smaller ski boat to provide shade as desired.

We like it when a plan comes together!
