Bimini - Jeanneau 37'

Always difficult to get good pictures of a bimini, they look so insignificant. The reality though is very different. The design and fitting of the stainless steel bars (three on this one), takes hours of work. The design part of the work involves getting the shapes right, the right height to suit the customers needs, and also to end up with bars that fit neatly together when the bimini is folded into its storage sock. The bimini also needs to work around the backstays, on this occasion with zips up to the stays, and splits on the forward bar so that when stored all the bars can be taken behind the backstays.

About Us

Penryn, Cornwall, United Kingdom
After two years at Falmouth Marine College, Paul, with a Diploma in Boat Technology, and an engineering qualification, joined a local sailmaker and very quickly developed a boat cover department within the business. After three years, he joined another local company and this time stayed fourteen years! In November 2004 we decided to go it alone and Ocean Covers was formed. Since this time, we have worked in local marinas and boatyards, on Ministry of Defence vessels in Port Pendennis Shipyard, and on every type of vessel from RIB to luxury motor yacht. Gill ? Well I have been bookkeeping and office managing for over twenty years, so this has proved very useful in the running of the business, keeping the paperwork in order, and making sure the bills are paid!
