Our Most Recommended LED Masthead Steaming/Fore Deck Light!
Our new 3NM LED Combination Masthead/Deck Light is certified to meet USCG/COLREG/CE & ABYC A16 requirements for vessels up to 20M. This lamp combines the mid-mast mounted masthead 3NM LED steaming light and a powerful LED fore-deck light in one attractive and robust housing.
It has all the features that you have come to expect from Marinebeam products, including a true constant-current topology (10-33VDC input), IP67 waterproof sealed housing, marinized construction, and a super bright 4W LED deck light. The light uses our 225° 2W sealed LED steaming light module, coupled with a high-output 4W LED deck light in a robust and UV-stabilized Black Nylon 66 housing.
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 masthead (steaming light), and the deck light. Includes approx. 11" of tinned wire for connection to your circuit. Click here for dimensioned drawing.

exactly as described have not used much yet but very happy with performance
I ordered the masthead deck combo light after see a reference to it on the Cruisers Forum. The quality is excellent, installation was a breeze and the foredeck light is very bright. I say it is a true bargain
The construction of this light seems very good and initially it looked like a perfect direct match to the Aquasignal it was replacing, however the fit is not exactly the same. If it's fitting to a very curved mast you may find using the same holes (as an old Aquasignal) it sticks out off the mast a bit more and can rotate on the screws - a bit of rubber at the top and bottom of the light can fix this. The reason seems to be the space on the backside of the light is different than the Aquasignal.
I'd still buy this light again - the issues are no different than any other retrofit on the boat.
Haven't tried the light with the mast up yet.
Marinebeam Editor: Geoff - We try to make it as simple of a conversion as possible but can't guarantee an exact match to all existing fixtures. As you mentioned, a small spacer tends to do the trick to keep the fixture from moving on the mast and gives you a bit more room to tidy up the wiring. Let us know how it performs once you get the mast up!
The light is powerful, and easy to install. I've seen comments about the lack of strain relief for the wires, but that's easily solved. The light has a grid on the back: just cable tie the wires to the grid. Problem solved.
Unfortunately, after 2 years of service, a crew parked a spinnaker halyard at the mast collar. We went sailing in 25 knots of wind. A couple of slaps from the halyard, and the side tabs shattered, leaving the light dangling from the wires.
But, I liked the light, so I replaced it with another one.
Now everyone knows not to park the halyard at the mast base.
