LED Nav Lights Seen For 2 Nautical Miles


LED Nav Lights


Perko’s new Stealth II LED lamps are now USCG certified up to 2 nautical miles for powerboats under 20m. Boats under 12m can use either Stealth II brighter lights or the original Stealth models.

The line includes bi-color lights and horizontal- and vertical-mount side lights. White all-round lights with fixed or articulating heads are also part of the Stealth II line. They feature the same sleek appearance as the original models, and at 1/2-inch high have the lowest profile among surface mount lights on the market.

Stealth II lamps feature a polished 316 stainless steel housing for superior corrosion resistance and long life. They also come in either black or white powder coated finishes.

Integrated Switch Protects Pumps


Integrated Switch Protects Pumps


Mate USA offers self-priming 12V and 24V pumps for oil changes, refueling or transfer of diesel, oil or water. Waterproof on/off switches integrated into each pump maintain the unit’s ignition protection and ensure reliability.

MARCO self-priming pumps are ideal for boat maintenance professionals and owners alike. The metallic switch is directly integrated into the pump motor, not simply attached to the tube. This ensures it remains durable and waterproof.

The VP45-S pumps offer continuous duty for diesel transfer and refueling operations.

MARCO UP1-JS pumps utilize a flexible rubber impeller and produce a flow rate of 7.4 gpm to tackle water transfer, or bilge and wastewater tasks.

Retail prices for models with an integrated switch start at $190.
