Default 270BR and camper enclosure

My factory bimini on my 270BR has zippers all the way around, so it indicates to me that there must have been a cockpit enclosure available for it. Does anyone know? Anyone have any pics? I want to have canvas stowed away in the event that we want/need to do an overnight. Short of hot water, the 270BR has everything you need to sleep on it in a pinch.

I believe all of the Bimini's were made with the zippers in them, but could be wrong. I know several other people have asked the same thing in the past.

Any good canvas shop should be able to line it up and make you one.

Agreed. We had a full enclosure made for our Sea Ray a few years ago and plan to get all new canvas made for our new 250CR. For everything it should cost me about $2000. My mother and step-father just had a full enclosure made for their 21' pontoon using their existing biminis and it was just under $2000. I would imagine the shop I use could do all of the side curtains for $1000-1500 tops for a boat that size. My 25' Sea Ray was $2100 and that was the whole entire thing including new hardware and poles using Sunbrella material.

The factory top usually has the zippers built into regardless if the full enclosure was sold with it.

I have a full enclosure on my 270BR and it's come in handy a few times. We keep it on the boat for those popup thunderstorms that happen on occasion that should only last a few minutes. One turned into two hours :0

Do you have any pics you can send me? Iíve only found one pic out on the web so far...want some different ideas for when we have ours made.

I swear between our 3 boats and our boat canopies our canvas guy is going to retire early...Cali canvas prices are nothing like the prices posted earlier in this thread.
