MY Air Superyacht
New Zealand company Shade7 have gained a strong reputation for providing high quality outdoor umbrellas to residential homes and commercial customers. Some of the more unique projects however have involved supplying their outdoor umbrellas to superyachts.

Shade7’s outdoor umbrellas feature in the outdoor area of homes, holiday homes, businesses, resorts, cafes, restaurants, bars, childcare facilities and much more. Usually fixed to one spot, Shade7’s outdoor umbrellas have taken a different journey as they cross the seas on several superyachts around the world. The Riviera cantilever umbrella, designed and engineered by Shade7, is the most popular umbrella in New Zealand and has also been a favourite on these superyachts.

The high quality of Shade7’s outdoor umbrellas make them ideal for these yachts which are constantly on the move and exposed to such a variety of elements. The outdoors umbrellas have been selected for their strength, high wind rating and marine grade materials which make them ideal for ocean living. The popular Riviera cantilever umbrellas have been constructed with a 20 micron anodised aluminium mast and marine grade anodised aluminium elsewhere which will not rust from the sea water and rain. The canopy fabrics have the highest UPF rating available, making them more resilient to the suns harsh UV rays, which these super yachts will have constant exposure to.

Arctic P is an 87m superyacht owned by Australian billionaire James Packer. Known for his involvement in Crown Resorts, Australia’s largest gaming and entertainment group, he certainly knows how to entertain on this large vessel. Arctic P features two of Shade7’s Riviera cantilever umbrellas and four custom wind rated centre pole umbrellas.
