High powered search light pencil beam 12v

I am looking for a high powered search light with a pencil beam. It needs to run off 12 V on my RIB. I have a chap who is going to film the beam on a dark night from the boat. Any recommendations please. Budget is 100 - 300.

Lots out there. Depends on how you wish to mount it but I use Cluson Clulites for my job a lot and they've proved very reliable!

I have a Hope bicycle light, at full beans it's brighter than any car light - 2013 R4 LED - 2013 R4 LED Product Page

Not sure if it'll be the right beam though.

There's a whole subculture of bright torches on the interweb; it's quite intriguing actually.

Many of the CREE LED units are generally mega, some of the bike torches are simply amazing, might not need a fixed 12v supply either many have a self contained battery pack & use just a 12v socket for occasional charging.
