Do I need navigation lights on my boat?

Australian states have jurisdiction over local waterways. Check with local government and legislative bodies for navigation light laws in your state or territory. It is every boat owner's responsibility to ensure their boat complies with the law, and if your boat is out on the water between sunset and sunrise, you definitely need lights. Navigation lights keep you, your passengers, and other water users safe.

What are the different type of navigation lights?

Navigation lights tell other skippers and water users what your boat is doing. Navigation lights help others predict your boat's movements so they can leave plenty of room to pass safely. Navigation lights include:

Masthead: A white light over the centreline of a vessel. This light can be seen from ahead and behind the vessels beams.

All-round white light: An unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 360 degrees.

Sidelights: A green light on the starboard side and red light on the port side of the vessel.

Sternlight: A white light placed near the stern providing a 135 degrees arc of light.

Regulations apply for both personal and commercial boats in every Australian state and territory. Speak to your nearest Anaconda marine product specialist for navigation light solutions in your region.
