Whitehaven motor yachts

SureShade’s global expansion continues with addition of Australia’s Whitehaven Motor Yachts to boat brand portfolio

An intensely sunny continent surrounded by beautiful cruising waters, it’s no wonder Australia is a growing destination for our sunshade systems.

Just a few months ago at the Miami International Boat Show we met up with the owners of Australian boat designer and builder Whitehaven Motor Yachts, Keith Hanson and Ryan Hanson, to finalize details for their first SureShade installations.

Even though Whitehaven is located half-way around the world, they could clearly see the value in adding our patented telescoping sunshade systems to their unique line of motor yachts.

The first boat model to feature a factory installation of our shade is the Whitehaven 6000 Coupe – a yacht that combines sporty style and performance with internal elegance.


Our automated sunshade electrically extends canvas from the hardtop of the Whitehaven 6000 Coupe using our patented telescoping framework.

The fully-integrated factory installation includes a fiberglass end cap to allow the shade to virtually disappear into the hardtop when not in use.
Why Whitehaven? Whitehaven Beach (located in Whitsunday Island, Australia) is renowned for the ultimate natural definition of nature, the greatest sense of relaxation and escape. Like its namesake the Whitehaven range of luxury motor yachts represent the finest definition of luxury boating, offering the exclusive opportunity to experience the ultimate escape and finest form of relaxation.

Whitehaven is currently accepting new dealers to carry their line in the U.S. – interested dealers should contact Keith Hanson with Whitehaven Motor Yachts at keith@wmy.com.au
