From trawlers to cabin or down east style boats, SureShade designs cover more than just fishing boats

SureShade retractable shade tops are perfect for any boat style.

SureShade has made a splash in the boating industry by debuting its innovative shade tops on several well-known fishing style boats such as Boston Whaler’s 370 Outrage and the 388 Center Console by EdgeWater.

Our retractable sunshade systems are designed for comfort and convenience on deck, so it’s no wonder that fishing boat manufacturers were early adopters of our cutting-edge shade systems. From center consoles to sportfish towers, shade on fishing boats has never been easier – or looked better.

But there are many other boat styles that can benefit from SureShade retractable shade tops – in fact, any style of boat can get on board with SureShade.

A Shade Top for Any Boat Style

In addition to fishing boats, leading boat brand and models of many other boat styles are covered by a SureShade retractable shade top. Every day our showcase of shade tops by boat style, brand and model continues to grow.

Cabin style boats come in all shapes and sizes, offering options for installing SureShade tops on a hardtop, bridge or arch. Whether spending the day or weekend on the water, cabin style power boats like Fountain Power Boats can comfortably enjoy any deck activity under shade.


Down East style boats are all about relaxing cruises and a SureShade retractable boat top ensures comfort throughout – even on deck. The Back Cove Yacht boat owners of this Down East style boat choose to extend the hardtop coverage with comfortable, sun-protecting and retractable shade.

Trawler boats may cruise slow and steady, but that doesn’t mean owners want to spend their time messing around with canvas. A retractable shade top, as featured on this Kadey-Krogen, can integrate very nicely into a hardtop or pilot house on a trawler style boat.

Catamaran style boat owners can enjoy the speed of boats like World Cat Center Consoles and more without worrying about first retracting shade tops. The rugged durability of SureShade tops can withstand speeds of 55 MPH, providing shade on speedy Catamaran style boats… or any other style boat that likes to wake it up.

Unique Shade Designs for Each Boat Style

With canvas and shade tops for boats, it is definitely never a “one size fits all” approach. The curves and lines of each boat style require a sunshade system that will offer the best protection while enhancing the aesthetics of the boat.


Boat builders pride themselves in designing a beautiful product that is built for performance. We pride ourselves in taking that same approach with our sunshade systems. Our goal is to design a sunshade system that provides comfort and convenience while being a natural extension of the boat… no matter what style boat.
