Looking for some lighting ideas

Am looking for some lighting options for a large inflatable that gets used frequently at night and annually to manage a large yacht race.

I'm sure there must be something suitable that's not ridiculously priced. I recently bought a 300 lumen light for my push-bike that would be brilliant, but in this case, even more powerful would be good, probably a couple of them and I'd hook up to the 12 volts.

It would need to have somewhat of a spot-light capability for seeing vessels ahead. As an example, my bike light reflects off street signs some 400 metres or more away.

Any ideas? Low budget would be good.

Re: Looking for some lighting ideas

Are you looking for spotlights? Or nav lights, to illuminate the boat? Portable lights, or boat-engine-alternator powered lights?

Spot lights and they will run off the battery / engine (alternator).

We'll maybe face one or two forward and one back for if we have to rescue anyone (usually happens).
