True Kit Bimini

With the intensity of the sun these days, it only makes sense to protect yourself from it when you’re out on the water. We started by trying to find a decent bimini top/sun shade to suit our boats and our quality standards. We were disappointed to find poor fitting bimini tops, poor and complicated designs and particularly low quality materials used to construct them.

So we started the process of designing and building our own. Our requirements were for a lasting bimini that was 100% UV-proof and 100% waterproof. We wanted a bimini that was pre-assembled so our customers didn’t need to spend hours trying to put it together. It needed to be able to clip straight into the Railblaza Ribports for ease of installation. And we wanted a bimini that could be packed down into a manageable package but assembled and put up in a minute or so. Lastly, we wanted it to be study enough that it didn’t need to be folded down each time you are underway on the water. Easy right?

After many hours of design and testing we are proud to introduce the True Kit Bimini. The fabric of choice is the European-made Stamoid®. It’s the stuff that Superyacht captains specify when ordering biminis and covers for their yachts. Stamoid® has all the UV and waterproof qualities needed for a bimini, it lasts incredibly well and also looks fantastic.  

When we sew these tops together we use a high performance thread designed for outdoor and marine environments - Gore® Tenara PTFE thread. This thread is so durable it is guaranteed to outlast the lifetime of the fabric it is sewn into! It remains flexible and strong throughout exposure to the extreme conditions.

The lightweight aluminium frames we make are connected with aluminium rivets to minimise any corrosion. We have come up with a threaded pole system whereby the collapsible parts are always connected all of the time. All the pre-assembly work is done in our workshop.

Our stay system utilises Marlow Pro Excel line for minimal drag and wind noise. These stay lines can be tightened and released through a captive Camcleat® locking system. You will love how easy it is to adjust the stays. The clips are marine grade stainless to clip onto your nearest anchor points on your boat. Our True Kit Biminis are built strong to be able to use when the boat is underway.

When you receive your new True Kit Bimini it is nicely packed down into a compact package. Insert a couple of poles and pull the LockLine tight into the Clamcleat®. Then simply clip the poles straight into the Ribports on your boat and within a minute your True Kit Bimini is ready to go! 

At the end of your boat trip simply unclip and pack your True Kit Bimini down again to transport or store.  Our biminis are made to protect you from the elements... and withstand the elements at the same time!

Brilliant addition!

Wouldn’t be without it in the hot Fiji sun. Doesn’t get in the way and easy to disassemble at sea if oars are required

Kira Adams
Great boat

Great boat worth every dollar. Only one small adjustment I see can be made if possible. The rod holders, Bimini top and oars share the same hole so you can’t fish and have the Bimini top on at the same time. I ordered so rod holders with clamps that can mount on the steer. Other than that great boat love it easy to inflat and easy to break Down. 💯 satisfy

Arrived so quickly to Texas

SO far I have only had the opportunity to inflate and use once. I used without the motor as a trial on the lake using the row boat capabilities while paddling my wife around the lake. It seems very easy to inflate, to use and put away. I am excited to try it with a motor.
Its a very stable platform and at no point as larger fast boats went by, did any of the wake make us feel unsafe.
I have to say thank you to Truekit for their communication during the months I was researching this inflatable and for reviewing the pictures I sent of my set up with the bimini to make sure it was correct.
It arrived very quickly, assembled very easily (using the hand pump) and is fun, safe and enjoyable to use. It was easy to break down after use and fits easily into the two supplied bags.
I have another brands inflatable kayaks and for some reason the hand pumps that come with that boat takes a lot more work. SO i was really pleasantly surprised with how easy TrueKit was to inflate using the hand pump. I don't see a need to rush out and get an electric pump at all.
