The small size, long life and cool operation of the LED lends itself very well to boat lighting. Since they can operate for several years, run cool, and are very small in size, LEDs can be fully sealed or potted within a housing, making them impervious to water and air and thus extremely resistant to corrosion. Additionally, the solid state design of an LED navigation light makes it extremely durable. An LED equipped navigation light can withstand abuse and conditions that would normally make short work of an incandescent navigation light. Vibrations, pounding waves, rain squalls, and even minor impacts with docks will be shrugged off by quality made LED lights. About the best that can be expected from an incandescent nav light under those conditions is an expectation of servicing and replacement on a regular basis.
Where LED lights really shine though is in light output and electrical efficiency. A typical incandescent bulb produces about 17 light lumens per watt at best. Most of the electrical energy fed to the bulb is radiated as heat, resulting in a very inefficient and wasteful light source. LEDs, on the other hand, produce anywhere from 60 to 100 lumens per watt. Very little energy fed into the LED is radiated as heat, resulting in a very efficient light source that can produce a lot more light than an incandescent while using far less electrical power. Considering the importance of navigation lighting and the need to conserve power on a boat, this is an extremely attractive benefit. You can use less power, yet produce a much stronger nav light signal, improving your visibility to other boats while reducing power consumption at the same time. On smaller boats, you could run a basic set of navigation lights all night and still not deplete your batteries. Increased safety and increased efficiency, all from a simply change in light sources!
It is good practice to see how the lighting looks at night before committing to installing the fittings. This will ensure that the lights create the desired effect and that glare which would create an uncomfortable environment for visitors can be eliminated. For example, if a pool light is installed facing the patio area, the light will no doubt become an unwelcome distraction for people trying to enjoy an evening out of the house. By the same token, you wouldn't want to use high wattage uplighters to demarcate a pathway, as people using the pathway may end up with temporary blindness every time they look down towards the path.
