New Hard Top for 410

After 4 years of working on this project with Dedicated Marine I have one of the first Bimini Hardtops produced and all I can say it looks fantastic. Walking on the top is no longer an issue that was down right dangerous with a rag top, access to the boom is easy and now there is additional space to place solar panels which DM offers as a package as well.

Re: New Hard Top for 410

Hi Steve,
congratulations. After all the hard work that went into the design and installation it must be very pleasing to see the end result.

Re: New Hard Top for 410

Thanks Greg, We had the top on EG in under 30 minutes. Another 2 hours and it was bolted down and walking on it. DM used a new foam board that is stronger than balsa and lighter. 2 guys can move it but I had 3 for stability. It's in 2 pieces, port and starboard side, that bolts together at the center flange and pre drilled. Once the two are together, center on the frame and start installing the underside frame rail clamps. Very simple and quick to do. Not all frames will be exactly the same, More so in twisting or being bent over time but with the spacers provided it went smoothly. It didn't take Cindy the 2 hours into the install to ask about putting an enclosure on.


I should mention with some slight modifications to the molds it turns out that this top will fit the 380 as well. Chris at DM has already fabricated the mold mods and installed one on a test 380 in Florida.


The fact that Lagoon Owners have a manufacture that is willing to work this hard and provide such a great product is just fantastic. MD has been providing fly bridge tops for the bigger cats for a few years, the owners have been pleased with that option to make their lives more pleasant and now us smaller Cats have something to be proud of.

Hi Steve,
The top looks great. Do you mind sharing the approximate cost? I am planning on adding a hardtop to a 380 in 2016.

Captrdjr,
We have the dediczted marine top on our Lagoon 380 in Florida. We are very pleased with it; it offers great protection, a safe working platform, and an additional spot for sundowners! If you contact Chris through biminihardtop.com he'll respond right away.

Re: New Hard Top for 410

I believe the cost is right around $6k plus shipping. Well worth the price and I really mean no more than a few hours to install with 2 people. Came with all the hardware and I believe includes frame stiffening struts. We can't believe how much cooler it is under it as well as being able to walk on top of it. Solid as a rock!
