SureShade Automated Shade featured on new 45 Cantius power boat at dealers meeting.

SureShade, the designer and manufacturer of retractable sunshade systems for the marine industry, was showcased as a factory-install option on the brand new 45 Cantius during a private unveiling at the recent Cruisers Yachts 2013 Annual International Dealer Meeting in Sturgeon Bay, WI, USA.

Intended to bring the outside to the inside, the 45 Cantius offers a newly designed open floor plan that is perfectly complemented by the SureShade retractable sunshade system which automatically extends shade comfort from the hardtop to the entire cockpit lounge area of the boat. At a touch of a button, the sunshade extends to protect guests from the elements with an additional 6 feet of shade in the cockpit – whether entertaining at the dock or cruising to new destinations.

The integrated factory installation comes complete with a custom fiberglass end cap to allow the shade to seamlessly retract back into the hardtop and virtually disappear when not needed.

The 45 Cantius is the first model in the Cruisers Yachts Cantius line to feature a factory-installed automated shade option by SureShade, and the 41 and 48 models are expected to be modified to accommodate the integrated shade option.

“The automated shade system allows us to maintain a flagship feature of the Cantius line – no canvas to fret over,” said Jon Viestenz, product manager at Cruisers Yachts. “Boaters can enjoy the full open floor plan layout of the 45 Cantius in complete shade comfort from the hardtop to the cockpit, without the need to contend with canvas.”
