None that I have seen. Most curtains are "homemade" by the owner of the boat. My wife made ours. We use snaps.

I use screens made for car windows to protect a baby from the sun. They attach by suction cups, are easy to store and cheap but don't give total privacy. Also great to keep cabin cooler on sunny days.

Try King Marine Canvas. At one time they made the canvass for the C-Dorys. We contacted them by phone when we (Judy) wanted privacy. They sent standard panels down to SoCal and I mounted them by using the window retaining screws. Worked well, trim to suit.

I use the sunshades made for the front windows of cars and trucks. They fold or pop open from about a 10" diameter flat circular package. I takes one Command strip hook at the top and one at the bottom of each window, (No Velcro). I use the ones that are silver on one side and black on the other. When put up with the silver on the outside, the black on the inside makes the cabin dark. Works great under the forward hatch too -- No see through.

They are light, easy to store, and have lasted for 12+ years.

We made our own curtains. You can screw snaps into the holes used to hold the window brackets to the walls. Easily restored to original condition if not satisfied. We love the results. Curtains store in a thin bag stored in the v-berth.

We made our own curtains. I too hate velcro, as the velcro holds well but the glue typically peels away from the surface. You can screw snaps into the holes used to hold the window brackets to the walls. Easily restored to original condition if not satisfied. We love the results. Curtains store in a thin bag stored on a v-berth shelf.

I do not like Velcro for some of the same reasons. The sharp hooky half is always on the wrong side, and the sticky lets the hooky fall off after a while.
FIX, (aside from just not using Velcro) is replace the Velcro sticky with Gorilla Double Stick tape. Works like a charm, holds forever in HOT or cold.

Wish I had stock in that company.

I just did it the easy way, had some really cool old place mats from Hawaii, the right size and just ran some small wire down from the cabin light wires with some alligator clips from harbor freight and picked up a very cool little wooden 3 roller gizmo for under the porta potti so we can move it out easily at night.
