Mahogany Porch Railing

Looking for some advice on a mahogany porch railing. What is the best finish for a railing like this?The only part of the railing that is mahogany is the top railing. I've seen spar used but it didn't hold well. Thanks.
There's alot more to it then just putting on a toolbelt
