Dual Voltage Marine Lights and Fixtures for Houseboats

Looking at houseboat lights and fixtures, especially dual voltage marine lighting, the 12 and 120 volt kind, and wonder where to go?

Where can I find dual-voltage (12v/110v) marine light fixtures to replace old ones on my 1971 houseboat? No marine parts catalogues seem to have them.

If you have a catalogue that includes them, please let me know.

Thanks, Niser.

Well Niser, welcome to the houseboat forums, and sorry to hear about your difficulty in finding dual voltage marine lighting. I know that they used to be very popular in older houseboats, yet are rare in many of the newer ones.

The lights that are commonly used as replacement fixtures are the
Dual Voltage Marine Lights.
But I warn you, they are not cheap, however they are practical when you want to use 120 volt power, or 12 volt battery power to light up certain areas.

If I find other models, I'll post some more information for you.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their houseboat lights and lighting fixture experiences. Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found near the bottom of this page.

Thanks again for sharing, IAN - from

Looking for 12/110V fixture for Lakeview
by: DebbieShalva

I'm also on a Lakeview Houseboat. All my lightfixtures are dual 12V/110V. The fixtures themselves work (most of them); however, the plastic piece that holds the circular glass and plastic cover (I don't know if this has a name) is breaking on many of them. Does anyone know where I can get replacements?

Houseboat Lighting - 120V and 12V light sockets
by: Star Gazer

Does anyone know if there is a difference in the socket itself? The bulbs look the same except they are marked 120V or 12V. I believe it is our socket that has failed. I have power in the wire and none in the socket.

If someone knows if they are the same socket, just hooked to different voltage or know where to get the 12 volt sockets, please advise.

Thanks and happy houseboating. Star Gazer is a 1996 Lakeview Yacht Houseboat on Lake Powell.

Thanks "Old Houseboater" for your reply to my question about where to find dual-voltage marine lights for my old houseboat. I had already checked with my RV dealer and was told that the dual-voltage lights had been phased out and were no longer available thru them.

Dual voltage lights are available from your RV dealer. Many houseboat items are RV components.
