LED Marine Lighting: Bright Seas Ahead

Among looking very cool on your vessel LED marine lights are also effective for safety, fishing and leisure. These LED install kits can come customizable to almost any color and have effects of strobing and other patterns to make your boat the center of attention. Some product lines feature app compatibility to give you total control from the wheelhouse or the yacht club. These kits can begin under 500$ and can range upwards of a couple thousand depending on customer requests and size of vessel. Whether for your 20-foot fishing boat or 150-foot mega yacht the marine LED market provides an option for you. Below we will take a look at just a couple names in the industry to see what’s out there to a consumer.
