Center console boats with t-tops can get additional boat shade to cover a cockpit or forward bow by extending the t-top with retractable shade
A center console boat with a t-top is designed for fishing, and is a popular boat choice for in-shore or off-shore anglers. Their open forward and aft deck layout is designed for easy casting and reeling in the catch of day.
Unfortunately the center helm shade coverage with a t-top boat is often lacking. Anglers seeking t-top canvas extensions for additional boat shade beyond the t-top and sun protection in the forward bow or aft cockpit have had few options… until now.
With SureShade, center console boats with t-tops can get additional shade by extending the t-top with a retractable sunshade system.
Advantages of T-top Canvas Extensions with SureShade

The SureShade retractable sunshade system is unmatched by any other canvas system on the market. Built with a patented design technology, the SureShade system is a top-quality shade solution for t-top canvas extensions on a center console boat.
Natural Design Extension of your Boat’s T-top
Each sunshade system by SureShade is designed to compliment the size, design and style of your boat. The end result is a t-top canvas extension that doesn’t look like a design afterthought or add-on. Styling is equally as important as functionality with SureShade installations.
Flexibility to Retract or Extend T-top Boat Shade
There are times when you want shade on a boat, and times when it would be nice to retract the shade (without the need for a toolbox). A retractable sunshade system gives boaters the flexibility to choose shade coverage by easily retracting or extending the t-top boat shade with the touch of a button (automated boat shade system) or with a simple hand lever (manual boat shade system) or by pull-out (pull-out boat shade system).
Additional Boat Shade to Extend Stern or Bow Sun Protection
Although most boaters prefer to have a SureShade installed for additional stern boat shade, a SureShade sunshade system can easily be installed for stern or bow sun protection… or for both!
Innovative Shade Design that Eliminates Support Poles
The self-supported retractable canvas system is designed without the need for support poles. That means no interference with boarding, visibility, casting, reeling or other boating activities. Only SureShade has innovative system components – such as our patented tele-scoping framework – that enables boat shade tops to extend and retract with no support poles to interfere with boating activities… and a robust construction to withstand a harsh marine environment.
T-top Canvas Extension with Rugged Marine Grade Construction
We pride ourselves in designing a beautiful product that is built for long-lasting performance. All SureShade systems are constructed with marine-grade materials that are built for optimal performance in a marine environment.
Your t-top canvas extension includes stainless steel or anodized aluminum framework, canvas with 50 UPF+ rating and durable construction with the ability to withstand speeds up to 55 MPH while the shade is fully extended.
Quality Investment and Upgrade for Center Console Boats
A t-top canvas extension should be a convenient way to get shade on a center console boat, but it should also be a positive investment in your valuable asset. A quality SureShade upgrade will improve future resale value and help your boat stand out in the used boat market.
