If you love boating at night, you know how important it is to have a good boat light bar. A boat light bar can illuminate the water ahead, help you spot obstacles and hazards, and make your boat more visible to other vessels. But not all boat light bars are created equal. Some are brighter, more durable, and more energy-efficient than others. So, how do you choose the best one for your needs?

In this blog post, we will review some of the factors that make a boat light bar bright, and we will recommend some of the brightest boat light bars on the market today. Whether you need a light bar for fishing, cruising, or just having fun, we have you covered. Let's get started!

Brightest Boat Light bar

The brightest boat light bar is the Aurora 50" Marine light bar and the Aurora 50" Marine curved light bar. Both light bars produce a night slicing 42,800 lumens and come equipped with a combination beam pattern


A combination beam pattern has both flood and spot optics. So when you hit the switch, you will unleash an ultra-bright light that goes both far and wide

This marine light bar comes with an IP69 rated housing that is constructed of high quality 6063 aluminum and then mated with UV & Scratch resistant GE Lexan lens.

To ensure an impenetrable seal these boat light bars are sealed together with 316 stainless steel screws that are inserted every 1.5 inches which makes it durable enough for the most extreme boating conditions.

Included with this product is a full wiring harness which consist of the following:

  • Light Switch: CE Compliant 3 Pin Rocker switch encompassed in a water-proof housing. A red power indicator light will illuminate when the light is on, which is bright enough to be seen during the day but dim enough so it will not cause a distraction when the light bar is powered on at night.
  • Relay: 4 pin water resistant relay is rated for 12 volts and 40 amps. The relay also includes a heavy-duty mount allowing for multiple mounting locations. 
  • In-Line Fuse: Industry standard blade-type fuse encased in a water-resistant
  • Wire: Is wrapped in extra thick thermoplastic insulation. The terminal ends are soldered and insulated in heat shrink tubing to prevent contamination from foreign materials. A rugged PVC encases the wires for a very professional looking installation. 
    • Wiring Lengths: Aurora provides you with a total of 16 feet of wiring.
    • From the relay, you will have eight feet of wiring to the LED Light bar, four feet of wiring to the on/off switch, and four feet of wiring to the battery.
  • Deutsch Connectors: The Deutsch connector has a thermoplastic housing design that is sealed to the elements with its signature integrated latch. The integrated latch wedges the terminal pins together in order to create an impenetrable seal eliminating the likelihood of moisture intrusion.

Terminal Ends: To ensure a seamless connection to your vehicle’s battery, the positive and negative battery terminal cables are equipped with soldered ring terminals covered with heat shrink tubing.
