THIS AMAZING 2-WIRE LED LAMP IS A TRI-COLOR, 360 DEGREE ALL-ROUND ANCHOR LIGHT, AND SOS STROBE IN A SINGLE COMPACT FIXTURE.
While this looks like an ordinary anchor light fixture, proprietary LED technology makes it function as a Tri-Mode fixture. Switching between an LED anchor light, an LED tri-color, and a high intensity emergency strobe light has never been easier with our simple 2-wire design. Circuitry based operation allows for all modes to work with your existing wiring and switch.
A built-in dusk to dawn photocell turns the anchor light on and off to conserve power (active only in anchor light mode).
Tri-colors are used for enhanced safety by greatly enhancing visibility of your boat when sailing offshore at night. The have Red and Green (port and starboard) 112.5° sectors facing forward, on the boats center-line, and a 135° white sector facing aft. Every offshore cruiser needs one, but many cruisers forgo installing one because of the expensive fixtures and the significant hassle of additional wiring up the mast, extra fuses, switches, and deck glands needed.
Our LED Tri-Mode has all these features in one fixture thanks to its smart LED bulb with an on-board micro-processor. Memory functions allow for the bulb to detect on/off intervals as shown in the product video. Default is the photocell anchor light mode, followed by the Tri-Color mode. The S.O.S. strobe has an additional delay required between switching to prevent inadvertent activation.
A flexible mounting arrangement allows it to be mounted on a pole (1/2" PVC pipe), or on a flat surface using the included spacer, stainless steel screws, and nylock nuts. See pictures.
The two wires going to your existing anchor light are all that is needed. Your anchor light switch will control the modes, so there are no more wires, switches or fuses to add!
This fixture exceeds all of the requirements under COLREG 72 for both All-Around Anchor and Tri-Color use on boats up to 20 Meters.

It's been over 5 years since I installed this masthead light, and it has worked perfectly!
I have shopped around and this mast-head unit is a big improvement over all other Navigation lights on the market today. The unit is small, lightweight, energy efficient, multi-functional, minimizes mast- head wind instrument interference and offers many installation options due to its size. Everything I was looking for in a Tri-Color/Anchor/Strobe light + it has built in light sensor/"Smarts". Great Job with this LED application - exceeded my expectations.
LEDS are nice and bright. Adhesive instruction label is handy. Plastic clear lense had burr on top had to grind flat in order to put bird spike on. Had to close up holes in bottom in order to make weather tight.
Bought the light for my 21' sailboat a couple of years ago. Works like a charm. Cycles thru 3 settings easily per instructions. Installation may require using some brain cells but isn't difficult. Just bought a 26' sailboat and am purchasing another. Great product.
