The excellence of marine fabrics for yacht upholstery: combining comfort and durability


Technological advances in marine fabrics have significantly improved the quality and performance of marine upholstery, for your boat’s interior and exterior.

Modern materials are designed to withstand extreme conditions at sea, while offering optimum passenger comfort.

Technical fabrics now feature water-repellent, mildew- and wear-resistant properties. Some are even flame-retardant, offering enhanced safety on board yachts.

Thanks to the use of high-quality materials, Pascal Bruno Marine upholstery products offer optimum comfort and durability in demanding marine environments.

A technical material with multiple properties

Canvas and fabrics for marine upholstery offer a wide range of technical properties and benefits to their users.

UV resistance

Marine fabrics used in upholstery are now designed to resist the sun’s UV rays. These special materials not only protect fabrics from fading and deterioration caused by prolonged exposure to the sun, but also offer enhanced protection against skin-damaging rays.

As a result, you and your guests can enjoy marine upholstery that retains its aesthetic appearance while offering protection against the damaging effects of UV rays.

Resistance to weather and salt water

Marine environments are often subject to harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain, strong winds and salt spray.

Marine fabrics used in nautical upholstery are now designed to withstand this weather and salt water. They are waterproof and treated to prevent water penetration, guaranteeing effective protection against moisture and the elements.

As a result, marine upholstery remains durable and functional, even in harsh marine conditions.

Mould resistance

The humidity present in marine environments can encourage the growth of mold and mildew, leading to the degradation of upholstery materials.

However, modern marine fabrics incorporate mold and mildew-resistant properties. Thanks to special treatments, these fabrics prevent mildew formation, thus preserving the cleanliness and integrity of your marine upholstery.


Durability is one of the major assets of today’s marine fabrics. Their excellent quality makes them more resistant to climatic conditions, considerably extending their service life. Thanks to this robustness, marine upholstery products benefit from enhanced longevity, reducing replacement costs.

Ease of maintenance

In addition to their durability, modern marine fabrics used in marine upholstery also offer appreciable ease of maintenance.

Designed with this in mind, these fabrics are generally stain-resistant, keeping them clean and avoiding the hassle of common soiling when used on board a boat.

What’s more, they’re easy to clean, which greatly simplifies regular maintenance. Thanks to these features, yacht owners can maintain the appearance and functionality of their marine upholstery over the long term, without having to devote a great deal of time and effort to its cleaning and maintenance.

Special products are available for cleaning your marine upholstery.

Rubbing the fabric with soap and a soft cloth is often sufficient.

Specific characteristics

In addition to the advantages mentioned above, it’s important to highlight the specific characteristics of the various types of marine fabrics used in marine upholstery. These characteristics offer a wide range of options to meet your exact requirements, from boat seats to exterior cushions and protective covers for your boat, accessories and tenders.

Whether you’re looking for a micro-perforated fabric, a solid fabric or a micro-perforated waterproof stainless fabric, each choice offers unique attributes that can enhance your on-board experience.
