Retractable Navigation Lights Enhance Deck Safety

Although essential for safe operation at night, navigation lights can sometimes represent hazards when they’re not being used. Protruding housings can stub unsuspecting toes, or even lead to a trip and fall. Pop-Up® navigation lights from Accon Marine recess into the deck when not needed, preserving the boat’s clean lines while enhancing occupant safety.

Made from marine-grade 316 stainless steel, the 205-M Port Light, 206-M Starboard Light and 207-M Side Lights each feature a fully retractable design that leaves the deck flush when not in use. USCG-approved to 1 nautical mile, the lights meet the 72 Colregs protocol and are NMMA type-accepted. Each uses a compact #78 bulb that yields brilliant illumination from a streamlined and stylish housing.
