WHERE ALL CAN SUNFLY BOAT SHADES BE USED?

Here are some options to consider:

  1. Bimini Top: Installing a bimini top is an excellent way to add shade to your boat. A bimini top is a retractable canvas cover that extends over a portion of your boat, providing shade for the helm, seating areas, or even the entire deck. It is a popular choice due to its versatility and ease of use. Our sunfly shades and carbon fiber poles are excellent solutions that can be attached to the front and aft of the metal frame. 

  2. T-top or Hardtop: If you prefer a more permanent solution, consider a T-top or hardtop. These structures are typically made of fiberglass or aluminum and provide a shaded area over the helm station or entire cockpit. They are ideal for larger boats and offer additional benefits such as overhead storage and mounting points for accessories. Our sunfly shades and powder coated carbon fiber poles can be attached to the front and aft of the hardtop.

  4. Shade Sails: Shade sails are a flexible and stylish option for adding shade to your boat. These shades can be mounted on existing fixtures, such as bimini tops or railings, to create a shaded area. They can be made in various canvas colors to suit your boat's design and dimensions.

  5. Enclosures and Curtains: To create a shaded and enclosed area on your boat, consider installing canvas enclosures or curtains. These can be added to existing structures or custom-fitted to create a protected space, providing shade and privacy when needed.

Remember to consult with a professional or experienced boat outfitter to ensure proper installation and to choose the shade solution that best suits your boat's design, size, and intended use. Adding shade to your boat can enhance your boating experience and create a comfortable environment for yourself, your family, and your guests.
