‘Yacht Beam’ Exclusively Available Through The Yacht Group


Fort Lauderdale, FL October 25th, 2017 – Today, the Yacht Group announces their strategic partnership with ACR Electronics . ACR’s most powerful searchlights will now be exclusively sold and further developed by The Yacht Group. These searchlights are called ‘Yacht Beams’ and are being designed and manufactured specifically to yacht and commercial vessel specifications.


The Yacht Group’s innovative technology, coupled with ACR’s commitment to providing high quality emergency and survival gear, make the Yacht Beam the most powerful durable searchlights on the market today. Captains can confidently pierce through the darkest nights with The Yacht Beam’s series of one million and six million candela power. The lights are precision controlled via a military/commercial grade IP69 illuminating joystick (pending FCC approvals, expected shipments to begin in November*). 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.
“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.


Yacht Beams are designed to be easily retrofitted. A complete swap-out kit is available 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.


* New Yacht Beam Controllers are pending FCC, with an expected approval and shipping in November. Until approvals are obtained, these products have not been authorized as required by the rules of the FCC. The product stated in this release, ‘Yacht Beam’, may not be offered for sale or lease until authorization is obtained.
