Seasonal haul-out is an excellent time to upgrade a boat. And what better way to add a little excitement than to install underwater lighting? Both Hella Marine and Aqualuma offer great options to consider if you're ready to upgrade you boat and take it to another level.


AqualumaAqualuma's corrosion-proof and stylish 3 Series Underwater Lights are a convenient way to transform your boat and create a more memorable experience on the water.

Designed with long life in mind, the 3 Series is corrosion-proof and features Aqualuma's injection-molded, patented polymer housing, the most sophisticated material in underwater lighting available. It's recommended for boats ranging from 20 to 45 feet. Consuming very little DC power, each 3 Series lamp uses 0.6 of an amp per light at 12 volts or 0.3 of an amp at 24 volts. It can be operated in or out of the water and features standard 12-degree or wide angle 12-degree by 50-degree elliptical optics.

They're available in Ultra Blue, Ultra Green and Brilliant White and come with an industry-leading three-year warranty and 12 feet of tinned wire. Aqualuma's 3 Series is priced at $650.

Hella Marine

HellaHella Marine also offers underwater lighting for boats, and just as landscape lighting enhances a beautiful home, underwater illumination gives boats an ethereal glow. Whether for eye-catching aesthetics or to attract bait fish, owners look for wide light spread and ultra-durable housings. Hella Marine delivers both with its 0754 series surface-mount SeaVision LED underwater lights.

The heavy-duty lights are specifically designed for permanent submersion below the waterline. Ideal for smaller vessels, the powerful, energy-efficient LEDs are available in luminous blue or white options.

Hella Marine SeaVision 0754 lights are completely sealed to IP 68 standards in a nylon, thermally-conductive housing. The thick convex Borofloat glass lens offers excellent clarity and reliability under extreme heat and pressure, and will not blacken or crack. The six LEDs generate a light output of 1,000 plus lumens at 10-28-volt DC. Power consumption is less than 18W.

Easily surface-mounted on fiberglass or wood hulls, each light measures 6.46 inches in length by 2.98 inches in width by 1.14 inches deep. It weighs only 1.3 pounds and is pre-wired with 6.5 feet of twin core marine cable. Recommended installation position is 5 to 6 inches below the waterline, with each unit set 3 to 6 feet apart.

CE approved, Hella marine's SeaVision lights are designed and manufactured by Underwater Lights USA, a marketleading supplier of lighting systems to the world's megayacht industry. They come with a two-year manufacturer's warranty and have a suggested retail price of $866.67.
