Marine Curtains

The mainstay of any interior design

From luxurious statement pieces to functional yet attractive window dressings, Solarglide’s marine curtain collection is all things to all sailors.  Here at Solarglide, we understand the importance of style and functionality and make it our priority to help keep your passengers and crew comfortable and well-rested.

All our boat curtains are made to measure so you can choose every aspect of your finished products. Choose your style, fabric and backing lining then let our experienced team do the rest. Every pair of Solarglide curtains are manufactured in the UK.

Choosing the right marine curtains for your vessel’s interiors is vital to create comfort and provide passengers and crew with privacy, warmth, and light control. Solarglide’s curtains are exported all around the world and can be found on cruise liners, ships, and yachts, globally.

Whether it’s for porthole covers, or wide panoramic windows, Solarglide’s range of fully customisable curtains can add style and class to your interior.

When it comes to fabrics, we have something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for decadent luxury or an attractive pattern to add the finishing touch, we have a range of fabrics to suit.

In the world of marine curtains, we talk about fullness. This refers to the amount of fabric used in a curtain. The more fabric used, the more fullness the curtains have. More fabric equals a richer look, more sound absorption, and more protection from light. While we offer a full range of fullness, for a luxury finish for your cabins and suites, we’d recommend 250% fullness or greater.

Talk to us about your curtain requirements and we’ll give you all the options before helping you make your final decisions.

Where fabrics are not already selected by an interior designer, we’ll offer you a vast array of choices including Patterned, Blackout, Velvet and Dimout

Solarglide’s marine curtains come in three distinct styles, befitting a life on the waves. Choose from pencil pleat, double & triple pinch pleat, or wave.

Pencil pleat curtains are so called because they look like a line of pencils when hung. The folds of the fabric are tightly gathered to create the look and provide a neat and pleasingly uniform look to your curtains.

Pinch pleat curtains use a narrow, short pleat and are ideal where windows are smaller and need a more compact curtain.

Wave curtains have no gathering or pleating across the top. Instead, a twisting curve creates fluid folds to fall directly below the rail.

Hooks include white plastic, rounded and metal depending on the weight and fullness of your curtain choice.
For ease of shipping, our maximum rail length is 2.8m. However, larger widths can be achieved by joining pieces with no hindrance to operation of the rails.
