How can I keep paint on the trim of my ocean-front house?


I have had my trim repainted on my ocean-front house in South Carolina about every two or three years. It peels off in what seems like no-time. One painter suggested I try using marine paint on it. Another said that oil-based paint doesn't last as long as regular paint because of the sun. Who is right? What can I have done to avoid painting so regularly? The body of the house is Hardi-Plank and the paint holds up beautifully there.
