Webasto, a manufacturer of car sunroofs, has introduced a line of power sliding roofs specifically for the marine industry. The Series 60 marine roof is a modular sliding sunroof intended for either retrofitting or for installation during boat manufacture.
"In a time when many boat owners are keeping their boats longer, this presents a win-win situation," says David Wollard, director of Webasto Product North America's marine division. "The service center gets the business ... and the owner gets a significant upgrade." The roofs are available in three flush-mount and five top-mount versions, in smoke gray or green, glass or acrylic. The frame is made of anodized aluminum. Mechanical components are made of non-corrosive materials. Prices start at $5,997. Contact: (810) 593-6000. www.webasto.us
