SureShade’s manual shade top debuts in the Dominican Republic on-board the 2010 Boston Whaler 285 Conquest

with shade top by SureShade.

Anglers and dealers alike have taken notice of the innovative retractable sunshade systems by SureShade.

When Boston Whaler dealer Nautimar saw our automated sunshade on the 370 Outrage they knew they had to take it for a cruise in the Dominican Republic.

The Manual Tele-frame system can be cost-effectively installed by a dealer.

Customers of the new 2010 285 Conquest are seeking a cost-effective option for sun protection. With an oversized cockpit and countless fishing amenities, the 285 Conquest is built for fishing. Anglers want the comfort and convenience of a shade system that will not interfere with reeling in the day’s catch.

UPDATE: The SureShade MTF manual shade is now available as a factory-install option on Boston Whaler 285 Conquest (starting with 2012)!

Nautimar wanted a dealer-installed option that could satisfy their customers’ needs for cost-effective shade. They choose the Manual Tel-frame System from SureShade for their latest 285 Conquest customer and the results were outstanding.

“We wanted a dealer option for our clients and the manual sunshade was so easy to install and clearly the way to go.” – Boston Whaler dealer Jose Luis Prida, Nautimar, Dominican Republic


Manual shade system retracts and extends the shade with a hand lever.

The manual tele-frame system (MTF) is similar to the automated tele-frame design (ATF), but manually operated. The shade retracts in seconds via a hand lever; allowing boaters and anglers shade flexibility.

SureShade developed the manual version at the request of manufacturers and dealers like Nautimar who were looking for a lighter weight and lower-cost version of the shade system for smaller boats (under 35’). The manual version doesn’t compromise the innovative features of the automated system’s self-supported framework.

The manual version enables a shade solution for boats of nearly every size and budget.

Nautimar is so pleased with their first installation of the manual sunshade system that they are already starting their next dealer install.

We expect to see even more boats cruising into the Dominican Republic sunset soon!
