OceanLED has developed technology that provides a powerful, extremely bright and durable underwater light allowing elegant solutions for creating expressive environments.” The Superyacht series lights are equipped with a convenient dimming control, which is a popular feature for Captains who wish to tone down their underwater lights when entering harbors. It’s state-of-the-art panic mode feature raises the bar for Superyacht safety by providing custom technology integrated with the yachts onboard security systems, to deter or disorient unwanted intruders, or as a beacon to attract attention. The lights instantly switch from their solid static color to a rapid strobe of up to (3) flashes per second, enough to get anyone’s attention or dissuade trespassers.
