Biminis have been used aboard boats for decades to create instant shade. Superyacht owners seek more stylish solutions, which is why Amber Dynamic Sun Design has gained favor with a number of builders’ clients. Its upright sunshade systems are custom-constructed to not just complement the yacht, but also to incorporate speakers, lighting, and even misters.
Amber Dynamic Sun Design delivers sun-awning systems to yachts built by Oceanco, Amels, Feadship, Nobiskrug, and Vitters, to name a few. The upright supports can be either straight or curved. They can also be made of teak or painted the same color as the yacht’s hull (below). The Amber Dynamic Sun Design team will even work with you and/or your designer to create your own style of uprights.
Regardless, Amber Dynamic Sun Design makes the stationary uprights simple for your crew to install on deck. After they uprights are in place, the sunshade can be attached to them, then hoisted up mechanically.
Sometimes, though, shade alone isn’t enough. If there’s no breeze, it can still be too warm on deck. Amber Dynamic Sun Design has a solution for that: misters (see above). The stationary uprights gently spray to keep you and your guests comfortably cool.
But don’t consider the sunshade solely a daytime instrument. Oceanco, for example, reports that many of its clients want elegant lighting solutions up on deck as night falls. Therefore, Amber Dynamic Sun Design incorporates LED strips. They run vertically within the uprights. What’s more, they can be of different intensities or change colors, thanks to a wireless controller. Furthermore, a small light can be installed at the tip of the uprights, to shine light up on the shade.
Imagine the ambiance this creates when a cocktail party or bigger event is going on up on deck. Then imagine kicking things up a notch with sound. Amber Dynamic Sun Design has created more than a few stationary uprights incorporating small speakers.
Whatever your ultimate choice, know that the uprights are made to be simple to remove as well. Amber Dynamic Sun Design supplies locking cover plates for the installation spots on deck, for both safety underfoot and aesthetics.
