Carlisle & Finch Co.

Fast Patrol Vessels

Many of our products are designed specifically for small, fast patrol vessels. Our searchlights are used by some of the most prestigious patrol entities in the world.

Used by the U.S. Navy

C&F products are installed on the latest generation of U.S. Navy patrol boats. Pictured here is a U.S. Navy PB(X) vessel built at Metal Shark Boats.

Canadian Coast Guard Approved

C&F is the standard of the Canadian Coast Guard 47-foot motor lifeboat fleet boats pictured to the right. This patrol boat rights itself if it flips over, and the searchlight must hold up in this rugged application!

Preferred by Yonca-Onuk JV

World-renowned patrol boat company Yonca-Onuk JV specifies C&F searchlights to be used on their vessels. They also sell them throughout the world, including in Turkey, Malaysia, Egypt, Abu Dhabi, and Qatar.

Carlisle & Finch has created features specifically designed for Patrol Boats, such as Bullet-Resistant Reflectors and High-Powered Strobes for Nonlethal Deterrence, as well as Integrated Night Vision Capabilities using Thermal Cameras and Infrared LEDs. See Patrol Boat searchlight products below.

200W Xenon Searchlight

The compact 200-Watt xenon searchlight is unmatched in power compared to products of similar size. It has a low center of gravity in order to withstand the shock and vibration of patrol boats traveling at high speeds. The product incorporates important patrol boat features, such as a bullet-resistant reflector and a powerful strobe which disorients and blinds an intruder with nonlethal force.


The NightFINDER™ sleek combines an embedded thermal camera and xenon searchlight beam in a streamlined, contemporary design.

LED Searchlight

The LED searchlight integrates a powerful visible beam, infrared (IR) covert beam and strobe feature into one versatile product. The internal LEDs project an invisible beam, unseen by the human eye but seen with lowlight cameras and night vision goggles. Auxiliary wide-beam LED modules mounted on either side of the head will illuminate an entire vessel at close range, providing total situational awareness when interdicting a hostile vessel.

Coming Soon…Compact Powerful LED Searchlight!

It services over 1000 meters of distance and includes a wide beam option for search-and-rescue and vessel interdiction. Additional features offered include an auto-scan function, proportional-speed joystick, and a high-powered strobe to provide nonlethal deterrence.
