First and foremost, you want to select an umbrella that is built to high standards and for the long-run.
The market is saturated with poorly made products that are cheap, unsustainable, and hardly last more than a single summer, so it’s our mission to introduce you to quality brands you might have never discovered otherwise!
We love bringing brands from all over the world that focus on quality and durability, with an eye on sustainability, to our Aussie beaches.
Shade and pole size is closely linked, so the larger your shade, the longer your pole will be.
The size of the shade is usually determined by its purpose. Will you be moving it regularly as you transport it to and from the beach?
Perhaps you’re a business, like a cafe or restaurant, looking to shade an outdoor area with more permanent, fitted umbrellas?
Also keep in mind how you’ll be transporting your umbrellas (so think about how big your car is!)
Portability and size go hand in hand.
Beach umbrellas can be folded down into a neat and portable unit, designed to go wherever you do!
Most of our range of umbrellas come with a nifty little travel bag, so the only effort you’ll need is picking it up and slinging it over your shoulder as you head for the waves!
No shady business here!
At Boatshed7, we make it our mission to select brands and products that are eco-friendly or passionate about recycled manufacturing.
Reclaimed wooden poles, recycled plastic shades… we’ve always got an eye on sustainability when it comes to building our beach umbrella catalogue!
We’re proud to bring brands that align with our values to your next beach trip!
We love to see a variety of colours dotted along the sand!
From bold colour palettes to stunning vintage washes adorned with tassels - a beach umbrella becomes an extension of your personal style at the beach!

Of course, in addition to all the considerations above, you want to choose an umbrella that you love, and that suits your unique style and personal taste.
