Can I reupholster the seating on a pontoon boat with acrylic dyed fabric?

We would like to reupholster all the permanent seating on our pontoon boat. It is currently upholstered with marine vinyl, however I am interest in using Sunbrella fabric(s) or a combination of Sunbrella and vinyl this time.

We came up with this idea after reupholstering our outdoor furniture with Sunbrella and replacing the inserts with outdoor foam. The cushions quickly dried when left in the rain and look great a year later.
The boat is used on a lake and is stored indoors during the winter season. Do you think a solution dyed acrylic fabric is suitable for permanent exterior boat seating?

I look forward to hearing from you- Robin
