Starboard lights are green to show heading and position to other vessels. The colour has been standardised internationally and serves to ensure the safety of all vessels on the water. To signal to other vessels which side your boat is on, the starboard light (green) is different from the port light (red). The internationally uniform colour system thus serves to provide better orientation and to prevent accidents.
A full set of boat navigation lights comprises a number of different lights. Starboard lights are part of the complete set, which also includes other navigation lights such as masthead lights, and stern lights. Take a look at our corresponding categories to find all the products you need to equip your vessel with the mandatory lights.
For more important information on navigation lights be sure to check out our guide to navigation lights. There you will find helpful tips and advice to ensure safety on the water. In our Spares Bulbs and Parts category you will find a wide range of products to keep your lights in perfect condition.
