Nautica Marine by ShadeArt

The ultimate, marine grade side post parasol with hand polished mast and boom.

ShadeArts' flagship side post parasol or umbrella is best compared to fine furniture. It was initially custom designed in 2010 for a renowned super yacht client and since sold to discerning commercial and private clients the world over.

Nautica Marine is both beautiful and functional with each unique piece crafted in the UK from marine engineered 316 stainless and high strength alloys. The vertical marine 316 stainless mast is hand mirror polished and then mated to a hand mirror polished 316 marine stainless boom. This provides a beautiful and proportioned frame of great strength and flexibility.

The canopy frames are made from high strength marine grade aluminium and 316 stainless steel, ensuring that every element is highly corrosion resistant. Canopies are hand tailored in the UK from Europe’s finest fabrics and come in a selection of sizes, shapes and colours with options including 360˚ rotation, heating, lighting, and branding.

Nautica Marine is assembled and dismantled with one bolt and ShadeArts' unique bayonet system, which allows the canopy to be removed and stowed with ease. The custom mirror stainless winch and internal cabling is also a work of art.

All aspects of Nautica Marine have been designed to the highest quality with each piece, subtly unique. We proudly offer the ultimate, marine grade side post parasol.
