 SureShade RTX - Retractable Shade for Sport Boats 

SureShade M3 Retractable Shade for Megayachts
SureShade RTX is a patent-pending retractable shade system designed exclusively for the sport boat segment. Using telescoping technology, SureShade RTX provides watersport enthusiasts with a lightweight, low-cost option for shade within seconds.

 Key Features and Benefits: 

  • Boaters can decide when they want shade and easily extend or retract it as needed within seconds
  • There is no physical handling of canvas for shade; canvas automatically rolls up on a torsion-spring roller
  • System can be mounted to offer shade forward or aft;  a double shade version will also be available allowing canvas to extend both forward and aft at the same time
  • Self-supported framework that does not need any side supporting poles to interfere with watersports
  • Compact and lightweight enough for smaller boats - easy enough for DIY boater to install

 How it Works: 

The SureShade RTX™ is a patent-pending retractable shade system designed exclusively for the marine market targeting the sport boat segment. Utilizing the brand’s flagship telescoping tubular framework, boaters can simply and swiftly pull-out and push back the shade in a matter of seconds. Canvas automatically rolls up on a torsion-spring roller with no physical handling of canvas.
SureShade RTX how it works
The SureShade RTX mounts easily to towers and overhead tubular structures on smaller boats - the telescoping framework extends or retracts canvas in seconds with a simple pull or push motion.
A necessary and unprecedented feature of this system is its locking device that prevents the shade from self-retracting from vibration or wind when fully extended, even while underway. The ease of use and self-supported framework provides boaters quick access to shade without interfering with watersport activities.

With minimal components and a lightweight aluminum framework, the shade system can be easily installed by the average boater. A versatile universal clamp design allows the shade to be mounted aft, forward or both on numerous arch and wakeboard tower designs on sport boats 27 feet and under.
