Replacement Bulbs

When it comes to lighting for boats, especially for marine and navigational purposes, it's important to use bulbs that are suitable for the marine environment and compliant with regulations. Here are some common types of bulbs used for boats:

Incandescent Bulbs:

Traditional incandescent bulbs are commonly used in various lighting applications on boats. They are relatively inexpensive but tend to consume more power and have a shorter lifespan compared to newer technologies.

Halogen Bulbs:

Halogen bulbs are a type of incandescent bulb that provides brighter and whiter light. They are often used for marine navigation lights and spotlights due to their intense output. However, they also generate heat and have higher power consumption.

LED Bulbs:

LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs have become the preferred choice for boat lighting. They offer several advantages, including low power consumption, long lifespan, durability, and resistance to vibrations. LEDs are used for navigation lights, cabin lighting, underwater lighting, and more.

Fluorescent Tubes:

Fluorescent lighting is used in larger boats or yachts for general illumination. They provide bright, even lighting and can be energy-efficient. However, they may not be as durable as LED lighting in marine environments.

Navigation Lights:

These lights are essential for safe boating, especially during low-light conditions or at night. They include red and green sidelights, a white stern light, and a white masthead light. These lights are typically available in LED versions for improved efficiency and longevity.

Underwater Lights:

LED underwater lights are often used to enhance the aesthetics of a boat while moored or cruising. They create a visually appealing glow underwater and can attract marine life.

Spotlights and Searchlights:

These powerful lights are used for navigation, search and rescue, and spotlighting specific areas on the water. They can be equipped with halogen or LED bulbs.

Interior Cabin Lights:

For the interior of the boat, LED bulbs are commonly used due to their low power consumption and ability to provide a variety of color temperatures and lighting effects.
