Make Boating More Enjoyable With a Bimini Top from Empire Covers

Spending time on the lake with family and friends is one of our favorite summer activities.  Boating, swimming, tubing and camping on the lake is the perfect way to spend quality family time together and make memories that our children will remember forever!

  We recently received a bimini top for our boat and we love it!  A bimini top is a durable sunshade that provide protection from the hot summer sun but still allows you to enjoy the scenery from your boat.

Last weekend we come to realize just how much we loved having a bimini top for our boat...

 Two weeks prior we had gone on an 8 hour boating trip up the river.  It was just too hot!  We had to keep the boat moving and let the wind cool us down, or we had to stop the boat every 20 minutes and jump into the water just to stay comfortable.   As much as we love boating, the hot summer sun was just too much!

Last weekend we went boating, sporting our new grey bimini top and we were in heaven!  My husband's comment... "Wow, this is unreal!  We should have gotten one of these tops months ago!"

The bimini top provided us with protection from the hot sun, but still allowed us to enjoy all of the elements of a wonderful boating trip.  

I couldn't believe what a difference it made.  We had been missing out.

The simple fact that we didn't have the hot summer sun beating down on us all day long made a world of difference!  It made a fun day of boating so much more enjoyable!

The top was super easy to install and fit perfectly!  Everything was included, sturdy aluminum poles polished for a crystal clear finish, with 316 stainless steel hardware (nuts, bolts, screws).  Rear poles are included at no additional cost, for maximum durability and stability.  Matching storage boot also provided to help store your bimini top.  In the event that natural wear and tear damages your bimini top, a two-year warranty is also included. 

They offer a wide range of color selections to help match your boat perfectly. Choose from blue, burgundy, tan, white and grey. 

Empire Covers helps protect you and your valuables from the elements of the weather.

I actually had that Sunshade one and it wasn’t very good—lasted less than a year before I had to throw it out. Bought one from this place and it’s been great so far:
