A round-up of 20 new shady boats (from A to Z)
Each year, more and more boat builders are choosing to debut new boat models incorporating a SureShade retractable sunshade system.
Builders chose to showcase new boat models with their most desirable factory options, and we’re proud to see our patented telescoping boat shades as an American-made component preferred by builders and demanded by boaters.
At the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show we saw a record number of 20 NEW boat models equipped with SureShade – for a total of 85 boat models at the show available with a SureShade sunshade as a factory-installed option.
New boat models ranged from 29 to 88 feet in length – from center consoles to crossovers to luxury flybridge models.
The 2016 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show was a great showcase of all the SureShade-equipped new models available, but it also shows current boat owners how SureShade can enhance a variety of boat sizes and styles for aftermarket installations.
Here’s our round-up of 20 new shady boats (from A to Z):
