Need dimensions for bimini top 1988 Malibu Skier / No tower

Recommended Posts

I'm a new member, and I hope someone can help. I need to purchase a bimini top for my 1988 Malibu skier and the boat is docked 2 hrs away so I can't take measurements. Stock boat, 300 hrs (beautiful boat) no tower, removable "10 Foot Pole pylon" for wakeboarding. Any suggestions of width/height top I should purchase? Brands? I can't find any dimensions / specs online and have called Malibu but they were no help at all. Thanks!

Dont know if it will work with your pylon but I bought one for my 91 from iboats.com. dimensions are 67-72 inches wide. This mounts to the top of the gunwale. 30 to 36 inches tall(that was tournament boat height). And 5 foot length. I ordered in sharkskin plus and opted for the free bimini boot.

Hope this helps

Thanks Jordy! I found one that should fit the bill and they will exchange if it doesn't fit. I appreciate your quick reply and sharing your experience. Cheers!!!

Call Great Lakes Boat Top in Venore, TN:

http://www.greatlakesboattop.com

15 Quality Circle

Vonore, TN 37885

877-867-7861 or 423-884-6761

When I was there to see the operation last month they told me that they have every pattern stored for every boat they've made a bimini or cover for since the mid 1980s. The can pull up the dimensions, etc. and make a new cover or bimini without seeing your boat or having you take measurements (but you may want to just to verify).

I bought this same one with Jordy's help for my 91 Skier but in Sunbrella. If I get a chance, I'll get a pic uploaded.

You can have any bimini modified for your 10 ft pole. Any upholstery shop can do one of two things. They can cut a round hole and put and edging on it or they can sew in a zipper that you can open up and put it through or close it when you want. I had mine first done with the round hole and it never bothered me when the pole was not up.
