Sunbrella offers tips for bringing just the right touch of personality and stylish flair to your boat.

When you’re out on your Sea Ray, it’s nice to feel surrounded by touches of the familiar. Many boaters choose to “dress up” their boats with special details—a throw pillow here, a blanket there, an heirloom basket in the galley. No matter your aesthetic preferences, well-appointed accessories made with Sunbrella® fabrics are a perfect way to personalize your on-water environment. By simply adding pillows, a fabric sun pad and comfortable cushions in the cockpit and below deck, you can enhance the sense that your boat is a home away from home.

“Incorporating accessories made of Sunbrella fabrics gives you an opportunity to add personality, style and comfort to your Sea Ray,” explains Gina Wicker, design and creative director for Sunbrella fabrics. “The natural place to begin is with a Bimini made of Sunbrella fabric for all-important sun protection, and then add stylish touches with Sunbrella upholstery fabrics that are comfortable, durable and beautiful.”

Gina suggests choosing fabric colors inspired from fabric already on the boat. If you have a Bimini or enclosure made with a dark colored fabric, brighten the space below with a striped cushion or pillow made with Sunbrella fabric in a coordinating shade.

With a neutral colored backdrop, you’re free to experiment with colors and patterns. Mix solids and stripes in a similar shade, or choose opposite colors to make a bold statement. Adding accessories in an on-trend color is a great way to update the look and feel of your Sea Ray from season to season. And because Sunbrella fabrics are engineered for performance, they are water resistant and fast drying, easy to clean and won’t fade after countless hours in the sun.
