Underwater Thru-Hull Light

Design and innovation at its best.

Bigger, best, brightest. Designed to illuminate the worlds largest superyachts. The 18 Series is our largest Thru-Hull option. Designed for large vessels and superyachts, the 18 Series delivers a huge light output at an affordable price in our corrosion proof, injection-molded, patented, one-piece polymer housing. It can be serviced from inside the vessel. The 18 Series ultra light is encased in our 12 Series housing and gives Aqualuma 12 Series owners the ability to upgrade to the 18 Series from inside the boat with no haul-out. As part of the Thru-Hull range, the 18 Series is supported by Aqualuma's 6 year housing warranty with a 3 year warranty on internals.
