RTX Pull-Out Shade now Available for Factory or Aftermarket Installations

SureShade, the U.S. designer and manufacturer of patented retractable sunshade systems for the marine industry, announces that their new SureShade RTX Pull-out Shade is now available to boaters in need of more shade in the cockpit or bow of boats under 27 feet with an overhead structure such as a hardtop, T-top, arch or tower.

The patented SureShade RTX Pull-Out Shade operates with a simple push-in / pull-out mechanism to extend or retract shade for a cockpit or bow within seconds, providing easy access to sunshade on smaller boats. The introduction of SureShade RTX addresses the market demand for a lightweight, affordable, easy-to-install shade option in the popular 27FT and under segment.

Using specialized mounting brackets, RTX can be installed on hardtops, T-tops, arches or towers. A manually operated shade, RTX requires no electrical wiring or obstructive support poles, making it easy to install by dealers as an aftermarket installation or by boat owners as a DIY installation.

RTX has already been installed aftermarket in limited production and recently debuted at the 2016 Miami Boat Show as a factory option on the Scout 275 Dorado with other major OEMs and boat models on order.

SureShade now has a shade solution for every boat size and style, including: SureShade ATF automated shade for boats over 30 feet, SureShade MTF manual shade for boats under 35 feet, SureShade M3 for yachts over 60 feet and SureShade RTX Pull-Out Shade for boats under 27 feet.

Over 35 leading boat brands – including Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Grady-White and Cruisers – choose SureShade on over 65 boat models as their factory sunshade solution.
