Companies that make canopy tops for pontoon boats, often called bimini tops, include Sunbrella Marine, Carver Industries and Westland. Canopy tops for pontoon boats produced by each company vary in size and length according to the make and model of the particular boat.
The Sunbrella Marine pontoon bimini top package sold on PontoonStuff.com contains the framework with adjustable front struts, mounting hardware, wiring and a zip-on premium polyester fabric canopy. It easily assembles through the use of stainless steel snap buttons and zippered pockets. Sunbrella Marine offers a number of color options for its pontoon biminis, and the 8-by-8-foot canopy top costs about $500, as of 2016.
Carver Industries makes a number of different models of pontoon boat canopies in different materials, including cotton duck, poly-cotton, performance poly-guard and sun-DURA, all of which are water-, UV-, and mildew-resistant. They feature quality construction, marine-grade acrylic canvas binding, professional stitching and good warranties. Prices for full-enclosure Carver pontoon biminis range from about $339 to $697, depending on the size of the boat and the selected fabric.
