Lippert™ Introduces SureShade® Battery Powered Bimini for Pontoon Boats

May 8, 2023

Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (Lippert™), a supplier of a broad array of highly engineered components for the leading original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) in the recreation and transportation product markets, and the related aftermarkets of those industries, is proud to announce its SureShade® Battery Powered Bimini by Lippert to the recreational boating and marine industry. Designed for pontoon boats, this battery powered shade is the latest addition to the top-performing product lineup of automatic and manual telescoping shade systems offered by SureShade.

The Battery Powered Bimini is easy to install and mounts to most pontoon rail profiles. This new to market shade system features a sealed receiver that mounts to the pontoon’s deck floor, conveniently located underneath the helm station. The bimini can be extended or retracted with a simple push of a button, depending on the coverage needed. Charging the battery is easy. Simply attach to the 20-volt wall charger. Boaters can expect up to 30 retractions and extensions with a two-hour charge.

In addition to its effortless operation, the Battery Powered Bimini comes as a kit with everything needed for installation. The kit includes a 10’ canvas available in seven fade-resistant colors, two batteries and charger, poles, mounting hardware and a choice of a clear anodized or black telescopic frame that fits pontoon boats with a beam width between 92”-102”.

The ability to operate a pontoon bimini with the touch of a button makes the boating experience not only easier, but better. This new power-driven bimini is versatile and prepped to accept the SureShade Bimini Extension (sold separately). Pontoon boat owners can swap out the canvas for the SureShade Speed Top (sold separately) which allows pontoon boats to reach higher speeds when the bimini is extended.

“We are delighted to offer pontoon boat owners the convenience of an automated bimini top without the complicated installation of a fully-power-driven shade system,” said Harcourt Schutz, Senior Director of Aftermarket Sales for Lippert. “The SureShade Battery Powered Bimini by Lippert will give more coverage versatility to pontoon boats who have traditionally not had power-driven options.”

The SureShade Battery Powered Bimini by Lippert is immediately available to local boat dealers, service centers and pontoon boat owners. To learn more about this bimini, visit Shop SureShade® Power Bimini Top (
