Bimini for a sailboat

Hi everyone,
I want to enstal a bimini on my 30'. I got an estimate of $1800.00.
Is there a place where they have different biminies that can fit different sailboats based on a different blue prints for the different size boats that she have, that i can call and have it shipped to me, in a way that I can install it myself.

For our smaller boat, we used Ameriseam. You could try them.

Re: Bimini for a sailboat

If you are looking for an inexpensive bimini top I suggest that you check out Attwood Marine.

Bimini Tops For Boats, Pontoons & Jon Boats : Attwood Marine

I sewed my own top out of Sunbrella, so I do not know about the quality of the Attwood fabric tops. But I do know that their frames are more than adequate.

The only downside to the Attwood bimini tops is that their frames are fabricated from aluminum tubing and the fittings are plastic/nylon. I sail on a fresh water lake, so these materials work fine for me. My Attwood bimini frame has been in service for two years now without any problems.

They offer a wide variety of frame sizes, so you will have to measure your boat to determine what type and size to order. And since the top is ordered separate from the frame you can sew your own top or order it from Attwood. And if/when the fabric wears out, you will be able to replace the top yourself, without buying a new frame.
