Livorsi Marine's new underwater LED lights are offered in five colors - white, aqua-green, Bimini blue, ultra-blue and cool red.
The units, which the company says provide more than 40,000 hours of light, are built with internal self-protection circuitry, so they will not burn boaters or gelcoat. The lights use water to stay cool, but are engineered and tested to run continuously and safely out of the water, according to the company. They automatically turn off when they reach a maximum temperature and turn back on after cooling. Installation requires no major hull penetrations and the product has an internal suppression device that protects against voltage spikes. The units are made with 316 stainless steel and polycarbonate, and are shock- and vibration-resistant for operation at any speed, according to the company. They are available in four-, six- or 10-LED models and cost $509, $599 and $729, respectively. The 10-LED unit draws 3.5 amps and the six- and four-LED units draw 2.1 and 1.4 amps, respectively.
