Waterproof 25amp dash connector

Hey all,

Looking to tap into the vast knowledge of boat or caravan bits perhaps on here.

I need to add at least a 25amp connector to the dash and like the idea of Powerpole, I can't find them here though so wondering if anyone has anything similar before I order these from across the pond and pay a fortune for shipping and taxes.

I realise these are not "waterproof" but open to suggestions that are suitable.

Is that not just a flush mount Anderson connector, very commonly found on boats, off road vehicles, etc.?

A very quick Ebay showed up these:

That is indeed what it it is but the square ones look $hit i can only find the round ones across the pond but taxes and shipping is a killer but may have to just go there.

I want one with a cover that fits into a cig lighter size ish opening/mount, I.e the pictured one (It has a cover btw not pictured)

Nice - I did look for Bulgins, and have several lower amperage ones fitted on our sailing yacht that are superb, but couldn't instantly find 25A ones! I obviously didn't hunt hard enough.

Not a fan of bulgin I had previously (I took a 10amp version off months ago) but this one is an option for sure if I want it in UK.

Yes the bravo is 20 amps but I still want 25 amp minimum, this isn't only thing going in this socket long term. (Hence I may get the dual powerpole)

Never seen a cig lighter rated at 20 amps through, lot of power to bang through one of those.
