#1 An Underwater Camera
The depths of the of the ocean are full of beautiful creatures and exotic life that aren’t easily visible - however being a boat owner gives you exclusive access to all things wonderful. With a good quality underwater camera such as the Pro 4 High Definition (HD) Camera, you’ll be able to see the underwater world in a whole new way. Drop anchor and get diving!
#2 LED Underwater Lighting
For those who have a passion for fishing, you might benefit from LED underwater lighting. High-spec models not only allow you to fish in the night time by lighting up the water below, but they also attract the fish so that they swim towards the light. The Aqualuma 12 Series, powered by either 12 to 24 volt, illuminates the water like no other, perfect for larger boats.
#3 LED Speaker
Why just play music? An LED speaker is a must-have gadget, producing both light and music, ideal for adding an extra bit of fun to your boat parties. The Fusion Signature 10” 450 WATT Sports Chrome Marine Subwoofer features dual-colour diffused LED lighting options and a fibreglass-paper composite cone, perfect for low frequency acoustics.

Whilst on your voyage, you might enjoy some fun on the waves. An action camera allows you to make every moment a memory, capturing any activity you do, whether it’s sailing, swimming, water sports or anything else that you enjoy doing!
