LED Courtesy Lights


Definition of LED Courtesy Lights

LED courtesy lights are small, low-power light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures used to illuminate the passageways, deck floors, and stairs on your vessel. These lights help improve visibility and keep you and your passengers safe while navigating onboard.

Courtesy lights are typically placed in hidden or slightly hidden places so as to provide brightness without being overly conspicuous. You can also use them for accent lighting on your vessel, as they provide minimal lighting without glare.

The most common types of lights used as LED courtesy lights are:

  • Recessed lights
  • Surface-mounted light fixtures
  • LED strips

Installing LED courtesy lights on your boat has the following key advantages:

  • Conserve power: Conserving power on your boat is critical as it enables you to cruise comfortably for long distances. LED-powered courtesy lights use less power than traditional bulbs, conserving your overall power consumption.
  • Customizing your lighting: With color-changing LED courtesy lights, you can customize your lighting both on the interior and exterior while also offering the functionality of increased visibility.
  • Durable: LED courtesy lights have an average rated life of up to 50,000 hours, 50 times the life of traditional incandescent bulbs. Investing in these lights will reduce maintenance costs associated with frequent bulb replacements.
