Mikes Marine Custom Canvas, Virginia Beach, Va.
For this project, which won an Award of Excellence in the full exterior powerboats 27 feet and up category of the 2009 MFA Awards, Mikes Marine Custom Canvas redesigned the flybridge bimini and enclosure and added a new aft deck enclosure on a three-year-old Silverton. The shape of the bimini was a challenge: seven feet wide at the front, eleven feet wide at the back, but all one piece. The windows with u-zippers fore and aft swing up, and the door curtains swing in and snap to walk onto the side decks. The aft deck windows have a distinctive shape that sets this boat apart from the others in the marina.
