Depends on the material. A lot of guys that make covers out of sunbrella will tell you black. The material breathes and underneath will not really retain any more heat that a lighter color will.

If the material is a top gun canvas then light grey is the way to go.

Lighter sunbrella will show dirt and stains etc a lot more. Since the sunbrella is not died but infused color darker fabrics of sunbrella really to not fade much faster than lighter colors. I have had many custom covers made for my boats over the years.

I only use sunbrella now. A lot of shops use the panorama black color now. But if you don't want to go black the charcoal grey is a good option.
