Source for best LED down lights in white/red

I saw these lights on a Fastcat and wondered if anyone knew the source for them. They are LEDs that you can switch from red to white.

Seems sensible to me to have all round red lights in cabins etc at night.

We have them made for ourselves Paul
If you need them just order them or ask Duncan to order them we have them made both with blue and with red night lights inside and they are dimmable

and if you do have him specify if they need to be 12 or 24 volts

YachtLights: Marine Boat Lighting might have what you are looking for. I saw a few bi-color LED's in their web.

Dr LED also has some dome lights that have both white and red. Not sure if that's what you're after:

Doctor LED, Dr. LED, is a designer and manufacturer of LED-based lighting solutions for marine, boat, RVs, cars, and solar panel applications.

I simply changed out the bulbs and/or sockets to accept LED light bulbs. Don't pass up the LED strip lighting. I installed LED strip lighting behind a small teak facia board near the ceiling on my boat. They can give great low power ambient lighting on a boat. Here is another good selection of bulbs.

good selection of LED bulbs

This seems like a likely contender. One red LED and one white, select either, both dimmable

Another poster has recomended the soft white led as being very liveable with. This is a sensilight bulb

available from LED lighting, soundproof, Sailor's Solutions Inc.

The trouble with cheap LEDs is that they create a lot of Rf noise - not a good idea near the radios or other instruments.

That is one of the things we have checked with these and no interference or noise at all. But then they are not cheap , ( I wish they where )

I cannot say Paul I just know we have tested several and most where of a terrible quality so we decided to get a manufacturer to build to our specs No noise , no radio interference, dimmable , warm white and recessed with no more than 1 inch depth and a red or blue night light in the center ( also dimmable )
I must have had over 20 different spots on my desk most where not waterproof and many where to thick or the light was just to white , not pleasant for your eyes.
