Nautica Marine Centre by ShadeArt


The ultimate, marine grade, centre post parasol with choice of hand polished or satin stainless mast.


ShadeArt’s centre post version of the flagship Nautica Side Post parasol or umbrella. Nautica Marine Centre is designed, for in-table or to be free standing on a yacht deck, around the pool, or in a marine setting. This parasol is both beautiful and functional with each unique piece crafted in the UK from marine engineered 316 stainless and high strength alloys.

The canopy frames are made from high strength marine grade aluminium and 316 stainless steel, ensuring that every element is highly corrosion resistant. The hubs are available in stainless or machined from solid billet then marine anodised. 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 heating, lighting, and branding. Additional mast options are aluminium, carbon fibre or alloy reinforced timber with canopies in plain or louvered.

Nautica Marine Centre is available with a choice of pedestal base, hinged lid ground anchor or spigot and can fastened to a wooden, concrete or steel deck and can also be used in sand. The nautical jam cleat opening system make for easy canopy open and close and can be managed for daily set up in a commercial or marine setting.
