Any recommendations on window tint? Preferably polarized?

I used regular automotive tint at 35%. I very happy with that, not too dark but enough to cool down the wheelhouse.

Wynne Enterprises (my window manufacturer) told me they can tint (smoke/black), but will impact boat operations (visibility) at night and pre-dawn conditions. I went with clear for the front three, and blue-green tint on the port and starboard. This works well for me.

window tint

Sparkey,i did mine in limo tint....it is great in the summer and day light hours..but it does just the opposite in the winter it seems to be colder in the wheel house now....i would not do it again even if it looks great......you can see the window on the starboard side has no tint ...because it broke and i have not put the tint on the new window

Tint gives a great look, but only tint the side windows and keep your front windows clear. I had it both ways and it is much better with clear fronts.
