The custom stainless steel, folding T-Top that installs in minutes

The patent-pending T-Topless™, T-Topless Shadow™ and Montauk-T-Topless™ stainless steel, folding T-Tops combine the fishability, convenience and storage of a T-Top with the ability to lower the top in seconds to store your center console or Rigid Inflatable (RIB) boat in your garage, shed, boat house, short dry stack or under a boat cover. Storage at home can save you $2,000-$6,000 per year in storage fees or $10,000 to $72,000 savings over an average 10 year boat ownership! Plus, the top removes easily for cool days or fly fishing!

The T-Topless™ installs in about an hour (drill NO holes), and eliminates the need for annoying Bimini frames and straps which hamper access around the boat. An integrated navigation light allows for evening cruises and optional rod holders get your rods up out of the way!

The T-Topless™ is available in 3 models to meet your needs:

T-Topless™ Up & Down Drawing Image
Lowers in seconds

Simply pull out two quick release pins and rotate the top forward, below the windshield grab bar height in 30 seconds or less. Or remove the two front pivots and unplug the splash-proof lighting connectors to take the top off for fly fishing or a ride in the sun!

T-Topless™ Fits In Garage Picture
To fit in your garage

The T-Topless™ lowers below windshield height on most boats and RIBs, to fit in your garage, shorter dry stack, boat house, under bridges or to store with a standard boat cover (where it often helps keep the boat cover from sagging and collecting rain water).

Yacht owners can lower or remove the top to store their tender RIB below decks on the yacht.


Stable at speed (60+mph!)

Here is a short YouTube video of our test boat, a SeaPro 180cc fitted with a Yamaho ProV-200 running through Charleston Harbor in light chop.

The ride is a bit scary, but the top holds up just fine.

No Wood Screws Logo Image Split Jaw Slide Picture
Installs in about an hour

The T-Topless™ and Montauk-T-Topless™ installs on the windshield grab bars of your center console boat or RIB using two pairs of stainless steel split rail clamps in less than an hour without drilling holes in the floor of your boat and then trying to get wood screws to hold.

All other after-market T-Tops mount to the floor using wood screws, which don't hold up over time.

T-Topless™ Rotating Down Picture Lowers quickly

There are several models of width, height and and rake of T-Topless™, Montauk-T-Topless™ and our entry-level Shadow™ tops to provide a semi-custom fit on most center console boats.

Hanging from T-Topless™ Picture
Strong enough to hang from!

We do NOT recommend or warrant hanging from the top (and especially the rear), but we found in our tests that the 1" OD TIG welded Stainless tubing frame is strong enough to hang on!

Perko® White Navigation Light Picture

Perko® Logo Image Perko® white all-around navigation light provides USCG approved 2 nautical mile (2nm) visibility for power vessels under 65' and is ABYC, NMMA & RIMA certified. This lights uses a reliable wedge base bulb (not the traditional Perko® end-to-end light that frequently fails).

Replace your unreliable plug-in stern light!

The light's position above and to the rear of the top's canvas eliminates glare at the helm for much improved night vision!

SeaChoice® LED Nav Lite Picture

Ancor® Logo Image Ancor® brand tinned copper 14-gauge Wiring and adhesive-lined heat-shrink butt connectors are run completely hidden inside the tubing of the starboard leg. A wiring harness is provided to connect to your boat's navigation lights and Ancor® adhesive-lined heat-shrink attached splash-proof snap plugs allow for easy top removal.

SeaChoice® Logo Image SeaChoice® USCG approved 6-LED, 360-degree, 2 nautical mile (2nm) visibility white navigation/anchor light is offered as an optional upgrade for those who never want to change a bulb again.

The T-Topless™ Spray-Shield has 30-gauge clear Vinyl windows (also known as Eisenlglass or Isinglass) framed with Sunbrella® (any color) and attaches to the T-Topless™ frame tightly with Velcro® (note how it Velcros around the frame inside) and Bungee ball cords. The Spray-Shield wraps around the sides of the T-Topless frame to keep spray out and has a "smiley" window with plastic zippers which can be rolled up to let the breeze in and for trailering. Bungee Ball Cords Picture

The T-Topless™ will fold down with the Spray-Shield in place (may need to be loosened at bottom).

T-Topless™ Spray-Shield & Gull Wings Inside Picture

For those who want extra spray protection, our T-Topless™ Gull-Wings zip onto the Spray-Shield above, and extend to the floor and out to the gunwales, creating a sheltered pilot house. The Sunbrella® marine fabric and 30ga clear vinyl Gull-Wings extend down 6'2" from the T-Topless™ frame to be at or near floor level on most boats!

The Gull Wings can be unzipped from the Spray-Shield, removed and rolled up in about 5 minutes!

Requires mounting of 6 to 8 small, white 'knobs' to console and gunwales for bungee balls to attach to.

We can even custom make a set of fully surrounding T-Top Curtains if needed!

T-Topless™ Stainless Steel Rod Holders Picture
Optional Rod Holders

Polished SeaChoice® stainless steel clamp-on rod holders can be mounted on sides (as shown) for out of the way rod storage.

T-Topless™ Gear Loft Picture
Optional Gear Loft

The optional Gear Loft is custom fit to the T-Topless and Montauk-T-Topless to provide overhead storage for 4 or 5 PFDs (life preservers), towels, throwable cushions and other light gear, freeing up floor space or other valuable storage lockers for dry goods like tackle, food or coolers.

PhiferTex Logo Image Made of open-weave, breathable Phifertex® PVC-coated polyester by Phifer® with nylon webbing sewn around all edges and nickel plated grommets just like the Sunbrella® canvas, the Gear Loft will protect your gear and allow it to breathe and dry to avoid mold and mildew.

The Gear Loft laces onto the T-Topless™ or Montauk-T-Topless™ frame, under the Sunbrella® canvas in about 20 minutes. Unlike other T-Top storage options, the T-Topless™ Gear Loft doesn't hang down below the T-Top frame. Instead, it stays out of view and "out of your space" ... plus ... you can tow your boat with the Gear Loft in place, as the front closes with a bungee ball cord!
