- Work safely on board with the right deck light -
All boaters know how challenging it can be do work on deck when darkness arrives or visibility is limited due to the weather. A powerful deck light for use at close range helps the crew when working on the foredeck or in the cockpit. Wide-beam deck lights illuminate the working area and significantly increase safety on board. LED deck lights are also extremely energy efficient, and provide uniform lighting in the harshest of conditions without voltage fluctuations. Deck lighting makes your boat and crew safer, even when sailing in fog, rain or at night. For long-distance illumination, to identify obstacles early or to navigate in narrow waterways, we additionally recommend a searchlight from our SVB range.
A reliable light source on board is something that is sure to be appreciated by passionate anglers, recreational sailors or power boaters, or anyone wanting to enjoy life at sea when visibility is poor. Using innovative technology with highly developed optics, these utility lights are suitable for all kinds of uses. Inadequate vision can make the simplest of tasks considerably more difficult than they would be during the day, which is why the right deck light is so important. It can make it much easier to handle ropes in the dark when docking and casting off in the marina, anchoring in unlit coastal waters or setting or reefing sails. Any type of manoeuvre will be safer and faster if you have the right lights on board.
Every angler needing better vision at night should ensure he or she is equipped with a combination of deck floodlight and handheld spotlight or flashlight. You'll want to be able to see exactly what you've caught, after all.
- Helping you decide which deck light is right -
You should consider a number of aspects when choosing a deck floodlight for your boat.
LED or Halogen?
The type of bulb for your deck light that is available in our online shop can be selected from a choice of either LED or halogen. LED deck lights emit an intense, uniform light that is extremely close to daylight. Due to their high energy efficiency, LEDs provide constant, powerful brightness with low heat production. Durable and long-lasting, LED floodlights are a good choice for all boaters. They also do not overload your vessel's electrical system and can compensate for operating voltage fluctuations without any difficulty.
Halogen mast floodlights also feature an impressively high light output. Using special reflector technology, HELLA MARINE deck floodlights provide precise light control.
Type of operating voltage
Deck lights are permanently connected to the power supply on your boat. Before you decide on a model, you should check whether a 12V or 24V light is the right choice for your existing on-board network. This is important to ensure effective use within the required operating voltage and to avoid electronic damage.
Installing your floodlight
Marine-grade deck floodlights are made for use at sea and feature a robust, seawater-resistant housing that will ensure durability and longevity. Some models are made with impact-resistant, shock-proof plastic with high UV resistance, others with stainless material that is resistant to shocks, vibrations and corrosion.
Spreader lights can be mounted under the spreader or on the underside of structural parts of the boat. Being able to rotate or swivel your deck light will also be beneficial. Make sure you take into account the difference between vertical and horizontal angles. For example, spreader lights are more useful if they can be swivelled downwards so that the working area on deck is well lit.
Our masthead floodlights can be mounted on a variety of mast profiles and are attached by means of flexible mounting brackets on the sides. The basket design of most of our products prevents snagging the running rigging.
Take a look at the filters in our online shop and use them to select the best floodlight for you in terms of features such as bulb type, voltage, rotating or swivelling.
Boat lovers who enjoy sailing at night will appreciate the usefulness of a deck light that combines a floodlight with a searchlight. See better at close and long range and work in full brightness on deck as well as being able to navigate in the dark. Underwater lights are perfect for drawing attention to your boat in a poorly lit anchorage. Not only do they make your boat look great, the also increase its visibility to other vessels.
