Starboard Deck Hatch with Square Corners

Built To Order

When will this arrive?
Important Note
These hatches are not intended for openings that require 100% water resistance. They will have a certain amount of drip (especially when rained on or sprayed down during cleaning). They are only recommended for areas over your bilge or areas that can get wet (ski lockers, fish boxes, etc.).

Designed for customers with existing square corner cutouts, this deck hatch can be custom ordered and dropped directly into a square hole in your deck. A marine grade powder coated frame and 3/4" thick King Starboard ensure durability and performance.

Key Features:

  • Powder coated aluminum frameworks with integrated seal
  • Fabricated from 3/4" King Starboard - The marine industry's premier plastic sheet
  • Available with score marks or in anti-skid starboard for additional traction.
  • Powder coated U-Channel stiffeners are available and recommended for larger doors
  • Not intended for openings that require 100% water resistance
  • Welded corners allow this Deck Hatch to fit in a cutout with square corners

For most hatches that are regularly walked on, it is advisable to add the u-channel. It is not as much a "safety" issue as it is a "feel" issue. King Starboard while it almost never breaks, does have some flex to it. For Starboard deck hatches without u-channel, it will likely feel a bit "spongy" and flex much more than the fiberglass you will be walking on next to it. For this reason we recommend adding the u-channel stiffener to give it the rigidity you expect when walking on a boat deck.

I couldn’t be more happy with my purchase and will recommend boat outfitters to all my boating friends
Replaced double fish box hatches on a Cape Horn 19 with a custom one from boat outfitters. The hatch was exactly what was needed and a very well made product and really sets the front of the boat off!!
Half way
Start of the job
And the beautiful new hatch installed

Forgive my ignorance, but what is height dimension hinge and width dimension hinge? I'm trying to decide which I need.
scubalady on May 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Anne, If you would like to hatch to hinge on the longer dimension, then which ever field you put your longest dimension in to (Height or width) select that has your "Hinging On" option. For example, if you need a 24"Height x 12" Width, I would select "Hinges - Height Dimension" to have the hing installed on the 24" side. If you had your dimensions reversed, (12"H x 24"W) and want it on the long dimension, select Width for your hinge side. Thank you!
I have a deck cut out opening of 22 + 7/8" by 9 +1/16", but this is recessed into the deck slightly and has a lip of around 1 inch all round which the outer frame would need to sit on. Can you tell me if this is feasible and would the hatch fit in this recessed bit? Hope this makes sense, thanks, M Harte

I need a hatch I can stand on that’s made out of starboard? How big can it be
Brandon C on Dec 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Brandon, Great question! Either of our deck hatches, square or round corner, can be stood on. In the drop down menu, you can add a stiffener, which is recommended.

As far as how big it can be, that is totally up to you. We build to order these hatches and can custom make any size.

Go ahead and reach out to us at 866-633-7961 if you would like to discuss a custom size or extra large hatch.
If I order the Dolphin Grey is the outside frame in a matching Dolphin Grey color or is it in a white color?
azhouseboater on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rodney, great question! The door and frame will both be the same color that you request, so if you order dolphin gray then the door and frame will be dolphin gray. Thank you!
