New ShadeFin Canvas Boat Shade

January 2021 News

New ShadeFin™ by TACO Marine® is now available at West Marine, Bass Pro Shops, Crook & Crook, local marine dealers and through Buy TACO Direct at

ShadeFin™ easily attaches into rod holders, tops and gunnels to conveniently add an extra layer of sun protection for almost any boat.

To operate ShadeFin, remove the sleeve, mount to a desired location onboard and activate the underside release tabs. Structural ribs attached to weather-resistant sun-protecting fabric expand out from the body to lock the fin in place. 

Offered in black or white, ShadeFin’s fabric provides a UPF 50+ rating of sun protection for multiple areas of the boat, including fore, aft and sides of tops and anywhere there is a rod holder. It pairs with either a fixed or adjustable rod holder mount, which insert into any standard rod holder, a hardtop bracket mount, the TACO Marine Grand Slam 170 Outrigger or 170-2 Center Rigger Mounts, or with a fixed or adjustable clamp-on mount for pipe or tube.
