I have a cockpit sunshade I had made for my boat. Primarily use it on anchor/mooring so it's protected from the wind by the house structure. It's held up with 2 aluminum poles that fit into rod holders. Forward end attached with a keder strip to underside of bridge. It's super stable.

For fabric my guy recommended WeatherMax. In 4 years of use it's been very durable. And it's surprisingly waterproof. I will leave it up with light rain showers and it sheds/beads rain easily. I'm very happy with it.

I owned a sailboat and a Sailrite sewing machine for years... and used to do all of our Sunbrella, interior and exterior upholstery work.

You might want to research Phifertex: it comes in 70% sun shade and 90% sun shade. It is designed for these types of applications that you're talking about... so it might be a good fit. I used the 90% shade and could still see out from it, and it shielded people from seeing in. And it offered great sun protection for being a mesh.

Hope this helps! Good luck!
