Not sure if Salty John still sells all round white LED lights? It was actually marketed as an anchor light, but I ended up putting one on my bespoke stainless light-pole. I also upgraded the standard LED to high intensity version. It also had a photocell (light comes comes on at dawn or dusk), but I blanked off and wired to a Carling switch.

Doesn't have to be tall at all. It's going on top of a custom carbon mast.

Osculati do a few ranges...

Electrical equipment - Navigation lights up to 12 m

You can get them through ASAP but most will be special order so you may have to wait a while to get them.

350 for an LED light!

Had to laugh, it only comes pre-wire with 0.7m of cable.

Osculati kit is good quality. I have the stainless steel navigation lights.

I fitted Hella Marine LED nav lights. The only problem I experienced over 8 years is the chrome casing of the port & starboard lights corroding. I contacted Hella and they sent a new set foc.
