One of our most popular boat switch labels – and we would know – “courtesy lights” are one of the most common electrical loads on a boat. Courtesy lights are used to illuminate the deck area, and are generally used in higher quantities than say a boat spreader light.
For example – it’s not uncommon to have four or size 45 lumen courtesy lights around a boat’s console. Or used as accent lights, you may have 6 individual lights on the bottom of a hard top. Lower output, higher quantity of lights gives the extremely high end glowing effect without strong shadows common on extremely high end and well build boats.
Other common uses for courtesy or accent lights include in a salon behind cabinets of shelves, or can look great included on the risers of stairs. They are often used as under gunnel lights as well, or inside rod lockers, fish boxes or even livewells.
Typically being installed with a simple drill bit and a few screws, most of our courtesy lights won’t take more than 10 minutes to install after the wire is run.
