Imtra has introduced the Colorlight CLite2 searchlight for yachts 45 to 125 feet length overall. The high-output LED searchlight has unlimited rotation on both the X- and Y-axis with no hard stops, and can light up the sea around a yacht for 4,921 feet (just shy of a mile).

The unit’s LED lights are in a powder-coated aluminum housing atop an acid-proof, stainless- steel base. The searchlight can be networked to an unlimited number of helm stations aboard.

“While some existing searchlights offer 360- or even 370-degree movement, when they hit the hard stop, the operator is required to spin the light back around and reacquire the target,” Alex Larsen, Imtra’s vice president of commercial sales, stated in a press release. “This can be all that is needed for a person overboard or an obstruction in the water to be lost. The unlimited versatility and maneuverability of the CLite2 makes it the perfect option for any vessel.”
