Without seeing more detail, I'm not sure you can operate without frames but many new boats the windows are "glued" in place with a combination sealant and adhesive. Cars as well.

There is a thread one of the forums about sexy windows. Take a look, maybe you can avoid the expense of frames all together.

How about a fixed window with a port light inside it? Don't know if the combined cost would be as high as frames.
