Sailing Sunglasses


Whether you’re racing dinghies, cruising coastlines, or crossing oceans, our sailing eyewear enhances your experience on the water.

Sunglasses tested by the World's Best Sailors.

At SunGod, we design our sailing sunglasses to keep up with you, whatever the conditions. Worn by some of the world's best sailors, including Sir Ben Ainslie, America's Cup team INEOS Britannia and the Emirates Great Britain SailGP Team, all our sailing sunglasses feature:

  • Premium lenses for optical clarity: Our signature 8KO® lens technology is made from 2mm nylon, which is a transparent polyamide that's lighter, clearer and tougher than industry-standard polycarbonate. Learn more about 8KO® lens technology.

  • 100% UV protection: All SunGods offer 100% UV protection, so provide vital protection against harmful solar rays, which can contribute to eye cancer and blindness - even on overcast days. SunGods also offer impact resistance and shatterproof lenses. When looking for the best sailing sunglasses, make sure you choose sunglasses that meet required safety standards in your country, and offer 100% UV protection.

  • Hydrophobic lenses to ensure clear vision: Hydrophobic lenses make all the difference when faced with waves and spray. All SunGod lenses have a hydrophobic coating, which means the lens repels water, keeping your vision crystal clear.

  • Built to last, with a Lifetime Guarantee: Knocks and scrapes are inevitable onboard, whether you're cruising the Med on a yacht, or racing inshore on a SailGP catamaran. The best sailing sunglasses are built from ultra-durable materials, and backed by a Lifetime Guarantee. That's the case for all SunGods, which have triple-layer scratch-resistant lens coatings, ultra-flexible frames, and Pop-Lock™ screwless hinges to avoid salt-water damage. Plus, they're covered by our unrivalled Lifetime Guarantee, which means if your SunGods break - or you break them - we'll repair them free of charge.

100% UV Protection for Complete Safety on the Water

All our eyewear comes with 100% UVA and UVB protection as standard. This keeps your eyes protected from UV on the water.

We also offer polarised sunglasses and non-polarised options to offer sailors a complete range of options, depending on how you spend your time on the water.
