Our Privacy Room video is coming soon. In the meantime please see our step-by-step instructions below.

It’s inevitable that at some point while you are out on the water someone will need some privacy to use the restroom or change clothes, both of which can quickly lower the fun factor if you have to run back to the ramp or find a marina. The privacy room, included on all Veranda Luxury Pontoons is the solution to remaining out on the lake. 

Available on all VP, Vertex, Relax, and most Fish Series, this standard feature is deployed by lifting up on the handle located along the floor near the port entry gate. Once the panel opens up vertically, you need to pull the black strap downward to release the top support bar, which will fold out towards you until it’s horizontal. Now all you have to do is fold out the canvas material for use. The flap can be snapped closed by the user inside. 

A portable camp toilet could be purchased from most major marine suppliers. 

For additional information please reach out to your nearest authorized Veranda dealer or visit www.verandamarine.com.

The video for Adjusting Your Chair is coming soon. In the meantime, please see our step-by-step instructions below.

Practice makes perfect and like other features on your Veranda, allowing adequate time to learn how to operate each component on your new boat will ensure you are able to reap the most benefits out of your investment and previous time on the water. Whether running across the lake or soaking up some sunshine on a secluded cove, you will inevitably spend a lot of time sitting in the captain’s chair. The features and styles may vary slightly depending upon the Veranda Luxury Pontoons series and package you purchased.

The High Rise Hydraulic Helm Chair comes standard on all VP and Vertex Series, along with the Luxury Package on all Relax and Fish Series. 

The Reclining Helm Chair comes standard on all Deluxe and Base Packages on all Relax and Fish Series, along with the Vista View Series. A hydraulic pedestal is the only difference between the two. 

Knowing what each lever does allows you to make necessary adjustments before you get underway to ensure proper positioning and maximum comfort. The port side lever, located underneath the front of the seat base, adjusts the hydraulic pedestal base, moving you up or down. Sit on the chair, slightly lift your body up and pull the lever to raise it up higher, or remain seated and pull the lever to lower the seat down closer to the deck. 

Dropping the middle handle, located underneath the front of the seat base, unlocks the seat and allows you to rotate the chair around. Lifting the handle back up will lock it in place. 

The starboard side lever, located underneath the front of the seat base, allows you to move the chair forward or backward from the console. 

Unscrewing the round knob, located directly on the top of the seat base, unlocks the chair from the base, allowing you to remove it from the deck.

Finally, pulling up on the handle located in the middle of the seat base cushion allows you to adjust the angle of the seatback. 

Having a solid understanding of these various components of the seat will instantly reap rewards both on your ability to safely operate the pontoon and enjoy leisure time.

Our VP Arch Wakeboard Tower With Bimini video is coming soon. In the meantime please see our step-by-step instructions below.

The VP Rear Chaise Tower is the perfect fusion of water sports excitement, sport luxury style, and pillow-top comfort. This video segment will educate you about how to properly set up the bimini on your wakeboard tower for a fun-filled day on the water. 

You must always have a bimini anchor light on when operating in low-light conditions. You will need to locate the bimini anchor light that attaches to the top of the wakeboard tower, standing on one of the helm seats flip the cap on top of the light base open, insert the light pole and twist the base to lock in place. 

The bimini that extends outward from the folding arch wakeboard tower requires some practice and patience to learn how to properly deploy and store. We suggest you learn how to do this on land before you head out on the water for the first time.

The bimini frame is secured to the wakeboard tower with two straps. You can set the frame into radar position by removing both straps and freeing the secured frame piping arm on each side by removing it from the bracket, so it is loose and hangs down. Next, grasp the pole with both hands, and with one hand press and hold the release button and gently extend the pole with both hands until it’s fully extended. 

Now turn the safety pin on the base of the stainless still socket lower down on the wakeboard tower. 

Repeat this same process step by step on the other side. Now grasp the center of the bimini and extend the frame outward toward the stern. While still holding the frame with one hand, use your other hand to secure the ball end of the hanging frame arm into the socket on the tower, once in place, turn the safety pin to lock it into the hardware. Repeat this on the other side. You may need to adjust the extension arm on both sides by pushing the release button and changing the length of the pole until the frame is fully supported and not loose or flopping around.

If you wish to fully deploy the bimini on your VP Rear Chaise Tower you need to locate the removable pieces of bimini poles that attach to the bow side of the folding wakeboard tower. They should be inside the center toon in-floor storage or underneath a seat. The extra bimini pieces need to be inserted into the holes located toward the top of the forward side of the folding arch wakeboard tower. 

Next, unzip, remove and stow the bimini cover. Next, unfold the canvas and stretch it over the top of the wakeboard tower, being sure that the bimini anchor light extends through the hole in the canvas. Continue to move the canvas toward the bow and pull it over the frame until it is seated securely. Now, move to the aft side of the tower and adjust the extension poles until the bimini canvas is firmly secure and not flopping around. 

Please note that the canvas on a new pontoon will still be tight, so you may need to pull downward on the frame to get the hinge to lock into the base. After the canvas has had time to stretch it will be easier to deploy.

Getting a second person to help with the deployment of the folding arch wakeboard tower with bimini will make for a much easier and enjoyable process.

WARNING:
Please be aware that on windy days you can damage the bimini frame, pontoon rails, and even injure passengers when attempting to deploy the bimini. It’s also not recommended that you run the pontoon at high speeds with the bimini deployed as it will put unnecessary stress on the frame which will bend and damage it over time.

When trailering, be sure to lock the two zippers together in the center of the cover with the clip to ensure it does not blow off when traveling and damage your bimini canvas or frame.  

For additional information please reach out to your nearest authorized Veranda dealer or visit www.verandamarine.com.

Our Powered Bimini video is coming soon. In the meantime please see our step-by-step instructions below.

Your Veranda Luxury Pontoons powered bimini allows you and your passengers to enjoy longer days on the water by providing necessary shade from the sun or light rain. The standard size for the powered bimini is 9 feet, but you may have opted for the 11-foot upgrade to provide extra coverage from the elements. 

Standard Size: 9’

Options Upgrade Size: 11’

The first thing most boat owners do when they get onto their pontoon is to raise the bimini up from the flat storage position to 45 degrees, or radar position as we like to call it, which allows you and your passengers to access the aft and stern swim deck. Be sure to raise the bimini anchor light to an upright position if you are operating your pontoon in low-light conditions. 

The switch to operate the powered bimini on all VP and Vertex Series is located on the right side of the dash. Press and hold the button until it’s in the 45-degree radar position. If you wish to fully deploy the powered bimini, you will want to lower it back down to storage position, unzip and remove the cover, then press the “Up” again until it is completely deployed overhead.

WARNING:
Please be aware that on windy days you can damage the bimini frame, pontoon rails and even injure passengers when attempting to deploy the bimini. It’s also not recommended that you run the pontoon at high speeds with the bimini deployed as it will put unnecessary stress on the frame which will bend and damage it over time.

Our Vista View Manual Bimini video is coming soon. In the meantime please see our step-by-step instructions below.

Your Veranda Luxury Pontoons Vista View manual bimini allows you and your passengers to enjoy longer days on the water by providing the necessary shade from the sun or light rain. The Vista View manual bimini comes in a 9-foot length and is standard.

Standard Size: 9’

The first thing most boat owners do when they get onto their pontoon is to raise the bimini up from the flat storage position to 45 degrees, or radar position as we like to call it, which allows you and your passengers to access the aft and stern swim deck. Be sure to raise the bimini anchor light to an upright position if you are operating your pontoon in low-light conditions. 

To move the bimini up to the radar position, you will need to access the quick release hardware on the top of both the port and starboard fences and remove the safety pin to unlock the bimini frame. If it won’t release easily, you can grab the bimini frame with one hand while removing the pin with the other. Once both sides of the frame are disconnected from the top of the rail, you will need to firmly grab the side of the bimini frame and raise it upwards to 45 degrees. Now grab the longer frame arm and remove it from the bracket holding it in place to allow it to hang down vertically. Next, with your free hand grab the base of the hanging arm and move the ball into the base of the quick-release hardware. Once firmly seated in the base, you will want to push the safety pin back in to secure the frame arm in the base. Now move to the other end of the frame, still holding the bimini, and repeat the same steps to get that end of the frame arm secured into the base.

To open up your bimini fully you will need to unzip and remove the cover. Remove the safety pin from both of the quick-release bumper hardware bases. Now reach up and firmly grab the top, horizontal frame of the bimini and walk forward towards the bow to open up the bimini canvas. Once it’s fully extended you will need to move to either end of the frame along the fence and with one hand continue to hold the bimini up and with the other hand, grab the arm that is secured to the main frame, remove it from the bracket so it hangs down vertically and secures the ball of it into the base of the quick release until it locks into place.  Once firmly seated in the base, you will want to push the safety pin back in to secure the frame arm in the base. Now move to the other end of the frame, still holding the bimini up, and repeat the same steps to get that end of the frame arm secured into the base.

Please note that the canvas on a new pontoon will still be tight, so you may need to pull downward on the frame to get the hinge to lock into the base. After the canvas has had time to stretch it will be easier to deploy.

The standard size for the double manual bimini is 9 feet, but you may have opted for the 11-foot upgrade to provide extra coverage from the elements. The double manual bimini is an optional upgrade on Relax and Fish Series. The first thing most boat owners do when they get onto their pontoon is to raise the bimini from the stowed position to 45 degrees, or radar position as we like to call it, which allows you and your passengers to access the aft and stern swim deck.
