12-Inch LED Yacht Searchlight

Classic-style brass LED yacht searchlights produce a brilliantly intense white beam, consume minimal power, and have an extremely long life. The housings are available in a sparkling chrome finish or custom powder coat colors. An optional high-powered strobe creates a nonlethal deterrent and instantly transforms the searchlight into a nonlethal weapon.

The second size up in our line of LED searchlights, the 12-inch/305 mm LED searchlight produces a beam intensity of 3.5 million candela and projects light approximately 2000 meters. Compared to halogen lights, LED searchlights are more powerful, use less energy, are more reliable, last longer and produce a more effective light color. LEDs produce twice the brightness of halogen lights while using 75 percent less energy. LED lights are more reliable and less likely to fail than halogen lights. The 12-inch/305 mm LED searchlight has 10 LED lights, compared to a halogen searchlight, which only has one. Therefore, if one light goes out, there are still six emitting light. Furthermore, it will last an estimated 35,000+ hours (tested) whereas halogen lights typically last between 250 to 750 hours. LED searchlights also produce a white beam compared to the yellow tint of a halogen light, which makes it easier for you to see objects in the dark. The 12-inch/305 mm LED searchlight is customizable with six optional add-ons, including, infrared night vision, anti-icing heater, and a high-powered strobe.

  • Temperature Range: -40 ºC to +48 ºC (approx.)

  • Distance Producing 1 Lux: 2000 Meters (3.5°); 1024 Meters (8.5°)
  • Horizontal Span: Beyond Full Circle (385° with sliding stop)
  • Vertical Span: +35° to -35° (Total 70° approx.)
  • Horizontal Speed (Motorized Only): 12º/sec (approx.)
  • Environmental Protection: IP56
  • Power Consumption: 120 Watts
  • Voltage: 12VD, 24VDC, 115VAC or 230VAC
  • Visible LEDs: 7000 Lumens, 6200K
  • Infrared LEDs: 850nm

  • Anti-Icing Heater
  • Thermostatically controlled heater prevents ice build-up in cold climates (motorized base only).

  • Azimuth Indicator
  • LCD panel displays horizontal aiming position in degrees (motorized base only).

  • Wall of Light LEDs
  • Extreme wide beam at short range illuminates areas where the narrower searchlight beam cannot service. Learn More

  • High-Powered Strobe
  • Disorients and denies night vision of intruder and transforms searchlight into a nonlethal weapon.

  • Infrared Night Vision
  • Internal infrared (IR) LEDs covertly light up objects, which appear like daylight on a lowlight camera monitor, and also enhance night vision goggles on dark, cloudy nights. Learn More

  • NightFINDER™ Thermal
  • Integrated high-resolution lowlight color camera with electronic zoom adds night vision capability, and the camera is used as a covert targeting device to instantly light up objects.

  • SmartVIEW™ Control
  • Control system provides digital BUS network, and the TCP/IP Interface allows remote computer control. Protocols supported include ONVIF, PELCO-D, NMEA 0183 and Carlisle & Finch’s own protocol. Learn More
