EXTENDING THE EXPERIENCE

More comfort, convenience & sun protection to make the experience even better.

SureShade® delivers improved sun protection and on-board comfort with manual & automated boat shade systems for a permanent sunshade solution that can be installed on a hardtop, T-top, tower or arch for more shade protection in the cockpit or bow (or both) of a boat.

Installed on thousands of boats worldwide, more and more boat builders are choosing to add SureShade retractable sunshade systems to new boat model designs… and our shade systems have quickly become a must-have feature boaters are demanding for both new boats and aftermarket equipment upgrades.

You Can’t Own a Boat Without Having a SureShade!

Love SureShade. SureShade solves our family's sun problems by providing coverage for the entire boat with ease. Setup is easy and quick, and nothing obstructs the fishing poles. I can even leave it out while underway - hit 30 knots without retracting the shades. Thank you for making this product a reality and supporting DIYers with older boats.

The Design is Very Simple to Operate and Maintain

SureShade is just perfect for my boat - very well finished and it looks like an original part of the boat. Our family is happy to have a SureShade on board all the time to make sure I always have a shade to enjoy the day. I am completely happy and satisfied with your product!

If it Doesn’t have a SureShade, it’s Just Another Boat!

We are so happy with our SureShade shade system and how essential it has become for our boat. As far as we are concerned, if it doesn't have a SureShade, it's not a boat!

I Wouldn’t Own a Boat Without a SureShade!

We choose SureShade for its design, ease of operation and great looks. With just a push of a button we can go from full sun in the cockpit to shade in a matter of seconds.

Enhances the Value of My Boat

I love the fact that there are no straps or supports that might interfere with other activities on board. Aside from being very functional, I think it looks well integrated and enhances the value of the boat.

A Wonderful Addition!

SureShade was a wonderful addition to my boat and over the 2600 miles from Palm Beach to Lake Michigan I was asked at least a dozen times by boaters along the way about the shade.

I strongly recommend SureShade – don’t hesitate, just do it!

Our SureShade top turned out even better than expected! The shade now covers for full extent of the quarterdeck, with no side poles to get in the way of the fishing rods. It’s just a simple little exercise of winding the handle for the telescopic poles, and Hey Presto – instant shade.

Absolutely Necessary!

Absolutely necessary when grilling on our Boston Whaler 370 Outrage. One of the most important additions to our boat hands down. Would highly recommend an electronic SureShade to anyone who loves boating as much as we do.
