Dreaming of a Tropical Escape with Sunbrella Marine

As cold weather sets in across most of the U.S., it’s hard not to miss the sunny days of summer. This December, we’re dreaming of sunny days, a warm breeze, and the smell of salt in the air. Get inspired for your tropical travel plans (or daydreams!) with a look at Michelle Schroder-Gardner’s catamaran featuring a sunshade made with Sunbrella.



Michelle Schroder-Gardner is a personal finance and lifestyle blogger who, along with her husband, toddler, and two dogs trade off their time living on a boat and traveling the country in a van. She and her growing family had a sunshade made to fit over their sailboat’s trampoline area, providing a cool, calming place to relax and get relief from the sun.



Sunbrella Marine canvas fabrics offer ultimate UV protection, fade resistance, mold, and mildew resistance, and easy cleanability, which is why Sunbrella Marine has been a trusted choice of boat enthusiasts, manufacturers, and fabricators around the world for over 60 years.


The ultimate UV protection of Sunbrella fabrics will help shield you from harsh sun on the water. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends certain Sunbrella fabrics in shading products as part of a complete sun protection regimen, including regular use of sunscreen, to aid in preventing sun-induced skin damage.
