No arguments here against the use of BM Brilliant White in that type of environment.

I’ve done a couple of Atlantic barrier beachfront homes in Moorlife Brilliant White that held up exceptionally well since being done in the earlier 2010s. Both were clad in t&g cedar which was primed w/Moorwhite 100 followed by a couple of top coats of Moorlife flat. I did however bump up the sheen on the windows and doors.

In comparison, I did one about the same time in a similar environment with a darker 3x color which had to be redone after 5 years due to excessive chalking and fading whereas the white still looked great. The whites always had a tendency to look cleaner & not show the sea salts like the darker colors often do. Mildew is virtually a non-issue either due to the salts from the ocean air.

Below’s a link to the smaller of the two homes which were situated on opposing sides of the street.
