Enhance Outdoor Living Enjoyment With Tiki Huts by Tropical Marine Construction

In Polynesian countries it is known as “Tiki,” in Mexico it’s a “Palapa,” the Mayan Indians of Central America referred to it as a “Bohio,” and the Northern Florida Seminoles called it “Chickee.” Regardless of the nomenclature, these international terms all refer to the same type of tropical hut structure--a thatch roofed hut or building native to the tropics. Tropical Marine Construction brings the South Pacific to you with a wide variety of tiki design structures and tiki decor available for construction in your backyard or on your waterfront property. Versatile, affordable,and built for prolonged longevity and enjoyment, consider our tiki designs for your next marine construction project.
