Caring for your Sunbrella® fabrics

Worry free care for your Sunbrella® fabrics - so easy 

One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella® fabrics looking good is to properly maintain the fabrics. This can be accomplished by simply brushing off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics, wiping up spills or cleaning soon after a stain occurs. This helps aid in the complete removal of a stain. The longer spills and stains remain on the fabric, the more difficult they can be to remove.

Re-treating the fabric for ease of cleaning

As part of the finishing process, Sunbrella fabrics are treated with a fluorocarbon finish, which enhances water repellency. This finish is designed to last for several years but must be replenished after a thorough cleaning. Based on test results, Glen Raven® recommends 303® Fabric GuardTM as the preferred re-treatment product for Sunbrella fabrics. Fabrics should be re-treated after thorough cleaning or as needed.

History of Salthouse Next Generation Boats


Dean's favourite pastime out on the water fishing

Dean's favourite pastime out on

the water fishing

Salthouse Next Generation Boats’ founder, Dean Salthouse, has had a passion for professional sailing and boatbuilding all his life. He completed his boatbuilding apprenticeship as a marine cabinet maker and worked for 10 years at his father’s business, Salthouse Marine, effectively learning the ropes from the ground up in many different capacities.

Charisma built by Dean for his father Bob Salthouse


Dean founded Salthouse Next Generation Boats in 2005 after he and his father Bob Salthouse spent over two years working together to successfully revamp the original CORSAIR vessel into a wider bodied Cabriolet-styled motor yacht. Father and son worked together in the shed rebuilding a classic – tweaking ever so slightly an already well tested and proven design.



Salthouse ICON 54

Salthouse ICON 54

In 2013 Dean purchased the very popular ICON flybridge motor yacht range from Formula Cruisers. The ICON’s combination of design, build quality and exceptional sea keeping performance are a great addition to the Salthouse CORSAIR sedan motor yacht range.




The ICON has been rebranded as the Salthouse ICON and will be built with the same proven methods and quality craftsmanship that has been the hallmark of both brands for many years. Dean plans to expand the ICON range to include sedan style cruisers up to 70ft. Which is about to be released - The Salthouse ICON 54S

Dean’s favourite saying is “Good things take time, great things take longer!” And the proof is in the satisfaction and enjoyment expressed by Salthouse Next Generation boat owners.




Scrumptious Scallop Salad


10 to 12 large scallops

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

4 to 6 handfuls mixed salad greens

1 large avocado

Juice of 1/4 lemon

1 tomato or 8 cherry tomatoes

1/4 cup fresh blueberries


Fresh mint leaves, to taste


4 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon white balsamic


1 to 2 teaspoons brown mustard

Fresh ground pepper, to taste

Salt, to taste


Heat the butter and olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Place scallops facedown in butter/oil and sear for 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Flip and repeat on other side. (The oil may smoke a bit). Remove scallops from pan and cool. They should be room temperature for the salad. While scallops cool, prepare salad ingredients.

Place salad greens in a large bowl. Pit the avocado and cut into bite-size wedges. (Squeeze on a bit of fresh lemon juice to prevent browning). Slice tomato into wedges, or halve cherry tomatoes. Add to greens, along with blueberries (optional) and mint.

Prepare dressing: In a large measuring cup or small bowl, combine oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Whisk until emulsified.

Add scallops to the salad and dress to taste. Reserve any extra dressing for future use. Toss and serve immediately. Serves two.

How to Care for your Leather

Salthouse 63

Understanding Your Leather

Leathers are not all the same. The way they have been finished alters how they feel, the absorbency rate of soiling, colourfastness and at times the need for different care products. Leather is a natural material with pores and hair follicles, similar to our own skin. All leathers are artificially coloured and while a pigmented, top coated leather is less porous than a pure aniline or nubuck, they are all still porous allowing the leather to breathe for your comfort. Leather will absorb soiling which, if not removed regularly will cause premature wear and discolouration.

DEFINING WEAR ~ It is not necessarily how many times you sit down and get up, but the total hours spent in your furniture each day. Understanding this helps you understand the maintenance required. Also important is the type of soiling. We break this into two areas, ie wet and dry soiling (wet being the most damaging). While some forms of wet soiling are obvious such as spillages, others are not and can cause damage over a relatively short period. Perspiration ~ from hair, arms and legs on areas of contact can cause colour destabilisation or loss, leading to breakdown of the leather, causing a repair which may have been avoidable with a little extra attention when cleaning. Thinking about wear and examining your furniture while cleaning, can help prevent small problems becoming large ones.

Maintaining your leather upholstery

Use cleaning and care products such as the Pelle System 'Peace of Mind' Leather Care that is formulated to international tanning standards and approved for sealed upholstery leathers.

Regular light cleaning followed by deep cleaning every 3-4 month. After deep cleaning condition and protect your leather to keep it soft and supple and provide protection against wear, soiling and spillages making future cleaning easier. Use special products for stain removal, spillage removal and scratch repair.

Prevention is the key!

To help extend the life of your leather furniture it is important to clean and condition the leather on a regular basis, usually every four to six months, depending on the amount of use.

After cleaning, the conditioner will help to prevent future spillages penetrating into the leather, and helps protect against discolouration, cracking or premature wear and tear.

Where possible, avoid excessive sun exposure. Leather that is regularly exposed to the sun can over time fade and become brittle and also damage the stitching.
