Marine design trends for 2022 are all about new design and personalization that takes boating aesthetics to new heights. With Sunbrella fabrics, mariners can make their boat uniquely their own with coordinating patterns and consistent colors across collections. Whether you’re a veteran captain or a newcomer, the Sunbrella Marine Upholstery Collection gives you the ability to design a craft that reflects your lifestyle and personality.
Ultimate UV protection, fade resistance, mold, and mildew resistance and cleanability is why Sunbrella marine canvas fabrics have been a trusted choice of boat enthusiasts, marine boat manufacturers, and fabricators around the world for almost 60 years.
When you think of timeless boat design, classic stripes, shades of blue, and crisp whites come to mind. This nostalgia for Americana provides building blocks to mix and match with new hues and design elements for a more modern feel and aesthetic.
Modern combinations provide a nod to the past while bringing us into a new era of boating. A great example is pairing a robin’s egg blue with wood tones like rich cherry or mahogany to create a retro ‘70s style in line with interior trends.
Luxury of Textures
Comfort is key when it comes to your environment and why shouldn’t that apply to your favorite summertime spot, your boat? Picture the plush, soft fabrics of a sofa applied to places like sun pads and cockpit seating. With innovative and durable fabrics made from high-performance materials, it’s possible and practical to use these textiles on your boat.
The use of highly textured materials enriches solid colors and neutrals, bringing a cozy and inviting atmosphere to any boating environment. Standout options include Sunbrella Horizon Marine Vinyl fabrics in two different texture options, Capriccio and Textil.
Tiny Details, Big Impact
Unique fabric or paint colors can set your boat apart from others and can serve as an extension of your own personal style. This can range from your entire paint scheme to the smallest details. Some of these touches include special designs sewn into the upholstery, as well as contrasting colorways of thread or fabric used as piping.
These quilting patterns create inviting and engaging seating with a high-end look. The result is a bench or captain’s chair that draws the eye and gives you the ability to showcase your personality and style.
Finally, completing the look with stylish pillows and other décor can transform any boat, giving it a fresh feel that can be easily adjusted to the season or activity.
Sleek and Sporty
The vivid colors and dramatic styles typically used in boat racing are making their way onto crafts throughout the harbor. Whether on a speed boat or a pontoon, these active hues make a statement for adventure-seeking mariners.
Bringing this motif to life relies on vibrant and saturated colors such as fire engine red, bright orange and even neon green. These eye-popping colors are often layered on top of a perfect stage of an all-black base including a black hull, poles and trim. A touch of silver and accents in chrome complete the high-powered look. Contrast piping and sewn-in designs are also making an appearance to give sporty boats an edgy custom look. Not ready to go full throttle? Many boaters are testing the water with large applications of bright colors like teal in custom Bimini tops.
