Dealer Sales & Service Resources
Our market growth has benefited from parallel demand generated from OEMs, Dealers and Private Boat Owners.
We understand that Dealers are the key to our success – that’s why SureShade provides boat dealers with unprecedented support in the design, sales and installation process with all of our sunshade systems – for both factory-install options and aftermarket/refit upgrades.
For aftermarket/refit installations, dealers have the opportunity to enjoy a dealer discount on all shade sales and retain 100% of the service revenue generated by in-house installations.

Top Selling Option
SureShade is a value-add feature boaters are demanding on new models and is a top selling factory option.
Shades sell boats! Dealers tell us that boats equipped with SureShade sell at a faster pace than non-equipped boats.
Dealers can offer the same quality factory shade system boaters are demanding as an aftermarket installation on new or existing boat models – earning sales & service revenue.
