Nice Looking Cockpit Shade

Saw this on a Sabre today. I like the simplicity and lack of complicated hardware.

That is a good looking shade.

Hopefully, Moonstruck will post some shots of his new retractable shade on his Saberline. It's very impressive without the need for vertical supports.

Yes they are, but how does the shade hold up in strong winds?

Al, there are really no good pictures of my cockpit shade cover. There was a great opportunity in Vero Beach, but no camera. Here's what I have.





Extends completely or retracts at the touch of a button. I was looking for shade for fishing. It has no supports, so nothing to interfere with moving around the cockpit.

When you say "touch of a button" do you mean it's electric? Or manual?

Those SureShades The Shady Side of Boating - SureShade Retractable Boat Shades are really nice. Back Cove and Sabre are building them in now at the factory. You can't even see it when it's retracted.

electric. They are starting to be factory options on many boats now. I had to do a retrofit, but it is a very slick operation.

Mine was installed by Siebert Yacht Services in Jupiter

Play the demo video put up to full screen to see how mine works.

Very slick. How big can they make them?

That's a good question. My requirement was to come to the back of the transom. We took the measurements as to how I wanted it, and they custom did it at the factory. Not cheap, but just the solution I was looking for. I don't think they could at that time do it very much longer. They have probably figured out a way to do that now. I'm happy with it. It is not a rain cover, but a sun shade. Of course it will keep some rain off your head, but we run it in when raining.

I should have said wide. I was wondering how wide they could make them. I'll contact them, thanks.
