Boat Shade Built for a Marine Environment

Designed with patented technology and constructed with marine-grade materials, SureShade retractable sunshades
are built to withstand a harsh boating environment

Boaters know that anything they put on their boat must be marine grade and built to withstand a variety of conditions on the water. Strong sunny rays, salty water, rough wakes, high winds and seasonal rain are some of the many harsh elements boats must face in a marine environment.

While functionality is important, boaters are also looking for quality sunshade systems that are built to last.

That’s why SureShade has spent years perfecting and patenting designs that are both innovative and built to endure a marine environment.

Marine Grade Materials

All SureShade systems are constructed with marine-grade materials that are built for optimal performance in a marine environment.

Marine-grade materials used in SureShade sunshade systems include:

Heavy-duty 316SS stainless steel framework (automated shade systems)

Lightweight anodized aluminum framework
(manual shade systems)

Heavy-duty stainless steel mounting components

Marine-grade Sunbrella canvas materials with a 50+ UPF rating (available in any color)

Low voltage electrical requirements operating on 12v or 24v

Built for Performance

SureShade sunshades are also built for optimal performance in a marine environment.

Special performance features include:

  • Self-supporting retractable canvas driven by telescopic linear actuators to easily extend and retract shade
  • Durable construction with the ability to withstand speeds up to 55 MPH while the shade is fully extended
  • Software-based synchronization of canvas extension/retraction operating with a toggle switch and/or remote control (automated system)
  • Optional arched roller design to match curves of a boat and improve rain run-off

Patented Technology

Designed with Patented Technology for Extraordinary Form and Function

To achieve the ultimate in styling and functionality, we knew our sunshade systems had to be innovative and stand out from the competition. So we invented several components that make our retractable sunshades unlike any other canvas system in the boating industry.

As a designer and inventor of marine sunshade systems, SureShade holds patents for multiple components and continues to develop innovative sunshade designs for nearly any boat style. Our patented technology is unlike any other in the marine industry… and simply cannot be matched.

This dedication to innovative design and quality, marine-grade materials ensures that an investment in a SureShade sunshade system will be a long-lasting investment in an improved boating experience.
