The Yacht Group will exclusively sell and develop ACR Electronics searchlights called Yacht Beams.

The searchlights are being designed and manufactured specifically to yacht and commercial vessel specifications, the companies said.

The lights are precision-controlled via a military/commercial grade IP69 illuminating joystick, pending Federal Communications Commission approvals. Shipments are expected to begin in November.

The Yacht Group’s Yacht Beams also will have an optional wireless control.

“We want to consistently provide a series of quality products with strong emphasis on safety at sea, and through this partnership with The Yacht Group we are achieving that goal,” said ACR Electronics president Gerry Angeli in a statement.

“The Yacht Group’s proven control technology, strong field installation experience and expertise in the yacht market has led to our strategic partnership in accomplishing this objective with ACR,” said Gerald Berton, president of The Yacht Group.
