Crevalle Boats recently launched its 26 Open Bay Boat at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS). The innovative, new boat features Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America's ground-breaking BlueSky electric sliding hatch.

The BlueSky electric sliding hatch is for smaller, hardtop boats. Like an automotive sunroof, one button tilts and slides the panel to provide maximum sunshine and ventilation. When it's closed, the durable unit is completely watertight. At 58.6" L x 31.9" W, it's a direct drop-in upgrade for the industry's most common hatch size.

Crevalle Boats prides itself on building family friendly, world-class fishing boats. That's why the BlueSky is such a welcome addition to its 26' 9-passenger 26 Open and 26 Bay models with the full second station option. It provides the airiness desired when the weather is fair, and protection from sun and rain when needed.

"Our BlueSky hatch matches the 26 Open perfectly," said David Wollard, Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America, director marine division. "Not only does its fit and finish match the exceptional quality of the Crevalle, but it's a perfect example of how our sliding hatch can be incorporated into almost any hardtop boat design."
