Made in the USA

Ship Shades opened over 30 years ago in Marblehead, MA and after 15 years in the northeast, we headed south to warmer climes. We now custom make your shades to your specifications at our facility in Alabama, under the watchful eye of Marcia Darnell.

We pride ourselves on customer service, so don’t get nervous about the “to your specifications” part.

All you have to do is measure your port and we will do the rest.¬† It’s pretty straightforward and we’re only a phone call away to help….even during the measuring¬†process.

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than those you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

-Mark Twain

Over three decades

We’ve been making our shades for over three decades and many of our original shades are still in service.

Over the years we have improved our construction and adopted new fabrics as better materials come on the market. We produce the most affordable quality window covering for your boat today.

Custom Made

Each set is custom made. You do the measuring, but we take responsibility for any mistake, no matter whose fault. You can send a check with your order or charge them on a credit card.

We do business the way it was in the good old days when people trusted others. Sailors are good people; so are we. We stand behind our product.
