Showers in boats typically aren’t very big, and that’s okay. You don’t need a large space to take a quick shower when out at sea. For these spaces and to help keep the water contained, we recommend our 6100 Flexible Curtain Track. This track works extremely well in small spaces and is sold by the foot. It bends by hand without compromising strength and can be ceiling or mounted on the wall.
Our 6111 Flexible Curtain Track Carriers are white plastic wheel carriers with metal loop, sold individually, and work smoothly with the 6100 Flexible Curtain Track. Add the Recmar 7142 Steel Curtain Hook, steel J shaped curtain hooks that are 1.5 inches long and easily attaches to any carrier with a ring to allow for curtains with holes or grommets, plus shower curtains, and your shower is ready to go. Should you need custom curtains to fit the space, we can make them for you from a wide variety of fabrics and colors.
If you already have a shower in your boat and just need replacement parts, chances are, we have exactly what you are looking for. If you are starting new, you don’t have to overthink a project like this. Our friendly customer service team is here to help you every step of the way. And of course, if you have completed a boat shower project, we’d love to see your photos!
JUST CRUISING AROUND
We’ve often written about using curtain tracks in personal boats but for this blog post, we want to talk about big boats. When we say big, we mean cruise ships! Cruise ships use curtain tracks in a wide variety of places. In fact, we noticed curtain tracks used not only in the main guest cabins, but also in the restaurant, fitness locker rooms, entertainment stage, and spa. That’s a lot of curtain tracks!
A LITTLE PRIVACY
When it comes to the guest cabins, Curtain-Tracks curtains and accessories are used to cover the window, in the shower, and to separate the sleeping area from the living space. This is particularly helpful when a family has young children who may go to bed early and the parents prefer to stay up watching some TV after the kids are in bed. But the most used curtain track in these rooms is most likely the one over the main window. These windows are often large round windows so guests can gaze out at the water while traveling. The 88001 Privacy Cubicle Track could be used for a project like this. It is an aluminum track with silver satin finish and is available in 6 foot, 8 foot, 12 foot and 16 foot sections. If a longer track is needed, sections of track can be spliced together for longer applications. Another option is our popular 6100 Flexible Curtain Track.
GETTING SOME EXTRA ZZZZZZs…
When you are cruising, you are usually on vacation. When you are on vacation, you may want to catch up on some extra sleep. But if you happen to be cruising in Alaska in the summer where the days are long and the sun doesn’t set until late in the evening, curtains are very much welcomed. For this reason, oure Eclipse curtains are perfect to help block out the light!
We’ve said it before and we will say it again, there are so many uses for curtain tracks and Curtain-Tracks.com has the best selection around. Let us know if we can help you with your next project!
is right around the corner and with that comes boating season. For boat owners
everywhere, taking your boat of storage is filled with excitement and
anticipation. Excitement for the many hours to be enjoyed on the water and
anticipation of how the interior looks after a long winter in storage. If
your anticipation turns to sadness because you notice there needs to be some
updating or replacing of curtains in the interior of your boat, turn that frown
upside down because Curtain-Tracks is here to help!
No matter the weather, we have the best selection of tracks and boat curtains around. In fact, we can custom make your curtains to your exact specifications. From our experience, no two boat windows are exactly the same, and because of this, you can’t just shop around for boat curtains that will fit just right. Boats aren’t perfectly symmetrical, so we recommend carefully measuring every job. Our boat curtain fabrics are durable, flame retardant, and Safe-T-Stitching locks in hems and seams. Not only are they high quality, they are available in a variety of colors. We’ve also got liners and blackout fabrics. Choose your fabric and then we highly recommend installing your boat curtains with snap tape. Snap tape affixes the curtain to the track via snaps that quickly and easily release the curtain panel when roughly pulled. Snap tape allows you to easily change the décor, keeps your curtains from ripping and your tracks from being damaged if a passenger aggressively grabs the curtain quickly due to rough seas.
ON THE RIGHT TRACK
Now that you have your curtains, if you find you need new curtain tracks, we suggest one of the most useful tracks for boats, the CurtainMate curtain track, This track is often used in boats and RVs. It is a small track that keeps a low profile, can be bent by hand, and is easy to install. It’s available in White, Brown, Gray, Black, Tan, Dark Desert, and Dark Slate so you can choose the color that best compliments the interior of your boat.

Sometimes, even your curtains need a quick getaway, or at least a quick, easy way to be released from their track. Snap carriers are an ingenious gadget that allows just this. These carriers are hung directly from a curtain track, but rather than have a hook, they have a “female” snap that fits into the “male” snap on a product called snap tape. The tape is sewn into the top of the curtain or drape, and allows the whole panel to be snapped right onto the carriers.
