Midnight Express’ (www.midnight-boats.com) new 43’ Open is one of the biggest, most unique looking center console boats on the water with seat-ing capacity that few other models in the class can rival. One of the design elements that makes the boat so unique is its custom Series 60 Marine Sunroof from Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America Inc. (www.webasto-marine.com).
The Webasto Series 60 offers multiple customization options, which is ideal for Midnight Express because it builds its boats to suit an individual owners needs and desires. When the sunroof is flush-mounted as seen on the Midnight Express 43’ Open, it integrates for a seamless finish. The Series 60 can also be top-mounted, matching most hatch designs for an incorporated appearance. Its rear rails sit completely to the side of the roof. With either installation style, the Series 60 provides a large opening and fully watertight solution to meet the needs of more light and ventilation on board.
The materials used to construct the Series 60 are about more than looks. The lightweight carbon fiber parts are engineered to lower a boat’s center of gravity, which improves handling. Everything accessory on the 43’ Open, including the control of the Series 60 Sunroof is digitally controlled.
