This unique combination LED bi-color navigation and deck light is made especially for late model Beneteau Oceanis sailboats that currently have a mid-mast mounted red/green navigation light, but no deck light.
It features a USGC-Certified 2NM Port/Starboard bi-color LED running light and a super-bright 4W LED foredeck light.
This high quality LED fixture allows the user to replace the navigation light with a better LED lamp that includes a bright 4W LED foredeck light. If you own a late model Beneteau and are in need of an LED deck light, this lamp is for you.
This lamp is designed to be mast-mounted to a wide variety of mast profiles using the flexible mounting "wings" which envelop the mast. Installs simply with two screws or rivets. This is a 3-wire lamp, with a common ground and 2 power wires for individual switching of the bi-color and the deck light. Includes approx. 11" of tinned wire for connection to your circuit.
We created this light at the request of one of Beneteau's West Coast commissioning agents that was annoyed that there was no longer a deck light option from Beneteau for the boats rigged with the odd mast-mounted nav light setup. He now mounts one on every boat with this configuration, and the customer's love the big improvement.

For those curious about the setup, Beneteau is now mounting a mid-mast bi-color red/green navigation light where the masthead steaming light (or combo foredeck light) would normally be. The bi-color lamp, along with the all-around anchor light mounted at the mast top, are lit only when steaming (under power). This accomplishes the required lighting for a motor craft under power. When sailing, the mid-mast mounted bi-color is extinguished, and a tri-color at the mast top is illuminated. This setup eliminates a separate stern light completely.
Because boats with this configuration have no masthead steaming light on the mid-mast, there are no products available (until now) that they can use as a combo deck light.

Looks very water tight, easy to install
Just installed this on my Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41 - another French boat that uses this type of nav light fixture. The light it replaced is an Aqua Signal series 25 nav/deck combo. A light that’s for vessels 6 meters or less, which is a 1 nm light. Clearly not the 2 nm light my vessel requires. This Marine Beam light is a big improvement. Well sealed, a bulb for each red/green side, bright deck light. The light is a direct replacement and required no drilling. I attached it with 3/16 inch aluminum rivets.
