Efficient LED lights are a brilliant update

Hella Marine LEDs

Nov 5, 2020

With growing demand being placed on onboard electrical power supplies these days, it’s an ideal time to refresh dated lighting fixtures with energy-efficient LEDs. Hella marine EuroLED 95 Down Lights draw little power while providing clean, even illumination. And, their indoor/outdoor rating enables the creation of an integrated look throughout a vessel, from salon to aft deck.

These attractive lamps are offered in 3.7″ round or 3.1″ square styles with mirror-polished 316 stainless steel trim rings. EuroLED 95 Down Lights are fully sealed to IP67 standard with a UV- and impact-resistant lens for interior and exterior use, even in saltwater environments.

Drawing only 6W, each produces 420 lumens of clean, bright light in a choice of comfortable 2,700K warm white or 5,000K bright white. The latter is ideal for enhanced illumination at the helm, on gangways and in work areas. Combination fixtures with a secondary red or blue light are also available. Spring clip mounting enables quick and easy installation, while Hella marine’s multivolt 12V/24V design makes these compact lights suitable for a wide range of vessels.

Backed by a 5-year warranty, EuroLED 95 Down Lights are even fully dimmable via pulse-width modulation for greater installation versatility. MSRP ranges from US$155 to $165.

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
