Welcome aboard. I would look in Florida for damaged boats from the recent hurricanes.

You mean a roof OVER the flybridge? That would not be original. Normally they are canvas Binimis. You could make a custom hardtop but I don't think you can buy a factory made one.

Also, I am not familiar with the Grand Banks 44' Europa . There was a 42' one though.

And BTW, if you do the install be sure the fwd corners of the top do not extend beyond the corners of the windscreen. You'll never get the big wrinkle out of the front enclosure

We have a canvas one and want to replace it .
The boat is actually a 44' Marine Trader that had the flybridge rebuilt to Grand Banks spec
So at least Grand Banks one would work we can retro fit .
Thanks

Greetings: We had an aft hardtop built by Atlantic Tower in New Jersey. They did a good job, solid product, worth looking into if you are East Coast. Not sure where Lake Toxaway is! Send me a PM and Ill shoot you some pics.

Not sure of how heavy (as in weight) your choice will be but it could impact the rolling effect having a possibly heavy roof mounted 6-7 feet above the flybridge as was not part of the design.

Most of the hurricane boats were either auctioned off whole or crushed before auction. A lot of nice equipment and accessories got thrown in the dumpsters as the salvage companies didn't care they were just paid to remove and dispose of them .
