SureShade, the designer and manufacturer of retractable sunshade systems for the marine industry, is now available as a standard factory-installed feature on Grady-White’s all-new Freedom 375. Grady-White has become the first U.S. boat builder to offer a SureShade sunshade system as a standard feature on a new boat model, further establishing SureShade as the new standard for boat shade.

Debuting at the 2013 Miami International Boat Show, the all-new Freedom 375 was showcased fully equipped with a SureShade automated shade system.

The Freedom 375 is Grady-White’s second model to launch with a factory-installed SureShade, preceded by the 2012 debut of their Freedom 335 at the Miami Boat Show. Available as a factory-install option on the Freedom 335, the shade proved to be a commercially successful option for Grady-White with a nearly 100 percent adoption rate by new boat buyers.
