WHAT IS IT ABOUT LIGHTING?

First the incandescent light bulb, then CFLs, and now LED lighting.  With homes, cars, and businesses on the path to energy conservation, we knew it wouldn’t be long before the yachting industry was in step with the mainstream. 

AMBIENT LIGHTS ON YACHTS

And with the flair that defines today’s modern vessels, the yacht industry has put its signature stamp of style on the use of colored ambient lighting – underwater lights.  Green yachting, James Bond gadget style.

MARINAS GLOW…

Superyacht marinas around the world are now bathed in a deep blue hue at night. Many megayachts have installed rows of bright underwater lights in their hulls. 

 

LADY PETRA

A week ago, the newest launch at Heesen Yachts, 47 meter Heesen yacht LADY PETRA was presented to her new owners and guests at a night-time ceremony – with a full array of underwater lights reflecting off the yacht’s gleaming white hull.  

TIARA

Even a few vessels designed for sail boat charters have installed lights below the waterline. The 178-foot Alloy sail yacht TIARA recently installed lights. Yacht TIARA is a certified PADI scuba center, which means charter clients can now enjoy night dives with dramatic underwater illumination.

OTHER YACHTS WITH UNDERWATER LIGHTS

Many well-known charter vessels feature underwater lights.  For instance, 45 meter Feadship motor yacht HARLE, 60 meter Lürssen motor yacht SOLEMATES, and 34 meter Broward motor yacht ISLAND TIME.
