Webasto Sunroof

Sept 17, 2019

Since its introduction, the BlueSky electric sliding hatch quickly became the premier hardtop sunroof of choice for smaller boats. Webasto in North America has broadened the innovative fixture’s adaptability by adding a manual option available in two sizes. The expanded BlueSky series debuts at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference (IBEX), Oct. 1–3, Tampa.

Webasto BlueSky hatches function like automotive sunroofs. With the electric version, a single button tilts and slides the acrylic or glass panel to provide sunshine and superb ventilation. Closed, it is completely watertight. Aquila Yachts, Crevalle Boats, Grady White Boats and Tidewater Boats are a few brands on which BlueSky electric sunroof convenience is found.

The new BlueSky manual model utilizes a single full-width handle to glide the panel back by hand and lock it in any position, including tilted vent. It offers the same outstanding quality and design features for which BlueSky products are known, plus reduced installation complexity and a lower price point. This makes it an extremely attractive addition to any boat, whether OEM or aftermarket.

In addition to the original BlueSky cutout size of 30.3″ x 28.3″, the new manual version is also available in a smaller 19.6″ x 19.6″ cutout. This makes it an easy drop-in upgrade to most existing hatch systems, opening the door to an even greater range of boat models.

Installed on a flat surface, the Webasto BlueSky manual sliding hatch is visually striking. Its modern sculpted black anodized frame blends with any boat décor. The durable acrylic panel is tinted grey and insulated to keep heat out.
