About Marine Navigation Lights
Marine navigation lights are designed primarily for safety, rather than simple visibility or decoration. They indicate to other boats on the water where a vessel is and how it is positioned at night. The United States Coast Guard has issued regulations on the types of boat navigation lights required for vessels of different lengths.
Boats Under 12 Meters
Vessels under 12 meters in length are required to have bi-color bow lights with a 225° total beam angle. They are also required to have a 360° all-around anchor light. The combination bow/side lights have to have at least 1 nautical mile (nm) of visibility, while the all-around light needs at least 2nm.
Boats Between 12 and 50 Meters
Vessels of a length between 12 and 50 meters are required to have more and different lights than smaller boats. They need a masthead light of 5 nautical miles with 225° of light output, as well as a 135° stern light with a visibility of 2nm. Instead of a combination bow/side light, they are required to have individual side lights of 112.5° each with 2nm of visibility.
