New Yacht Beam Searchlights Launched at Fort Lauderdale

ACR Electronics and The Yacht Group have announced a joint venture to develop and market Yacht Beams, the most powerful and durable searchlights on the market.

Launched at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the new ‘Yacht Beam powered by ACR’ series of one million and six million candela power searchlights are precision controlled via a military/commercial grade IP69 illuminating joystick (pending FCC approvals*). In keeping with their long history of reliable wireless controlled products such as their Yacht Controller, The Yacht Group’s Yacht Beams will also have an optional wireless control.

Designed to be easily retrofitted, Yacht Beams can be supplied with a complete swap-out kit for boats equipped with less powerful searchlights. HID lamps create a narrow-beam searchlight perfect for large sport yachts, mega-yachts, large sportfish, and commercial vessels. With a Yacht Beam installed on their vessel, all captain, crew and guests should feel as comfortable and confident as though they were on a daytime charter or voyage.

“We want to consistently provide a series of quality products with strong emphasis on safety at sea and through this partnership with The Yacht Group we are achieving that goal,” shared Gerry Angeli, President of ACR Electronics.

“The Yacht Group’s proven control technology, strong field installation experience, and expertise in the yacht market has led to our strategic partnership in accomplishing this objective with ACR,” agreed Gerald Berton, President of The Yacht Group.

The new strategic partnership combines safety expert ACR’s commitment to providing high quality emergency and survival gear with The Yacht Group’s innovative technology. The collaboration enables ACR’s most powerful searchlights to be exclusively sold and enhanced by The Yacht Group and designed and manufactured specifically to yacht and commercial vessel specifications.
