Nigel Savage has been at the forefront of marine lighting for the past 25 years. OceanLED represents his continued ambition of marine lighting perfection. Over the past 5 years Nigel and the OceanLED team have created the world's most advanced underwater lighting systems for all sizes of boats; from 3 meter RIBS to the largest super yachts. Continuing projects at Feadship, Oceanco, Christensen and Blohm & Voss, amongst others, are a testament to OceanLED's advanced technical achievements, industry recognition and constant pursuit of excellence in the field of marine lighting.
Lighting is one of the most important elements in our lives, and on a yacht it should be no different. LED's are now capable of providing lighting solutions for every application onboard. OceanLED, using the most advanced LED technology, offers perfect lighting solutions to them all.
An interview with Nigel, Founder and Managing Director of OceanLED
I met my wife in the 70's when she was in a dance troupe called the 'Young Generation'. I used to watch her shows in awe, of course because of her, but also for the overall visual effects. For each dance number the costumes were coloured to match the lights and I have always referred to the shows as 'a visual orgasm!' Ever since then I've been fascinated by light and of course my wife!
"I have created a few lighting companies over the past 30 years, where my primary aim was quality and exquisite design, but the problem with most lights is heat, bulb failure and colour control. "I was first introduced to Light Emitting Diodes (LED's) around 10 years ago, but it wasn't until recently with the introduction of High Powered LED's that I was able to seriously consider the possibility of using them for major lighting applications.
"LED lighting is not like traditional lighting with bulbs. An LED is an electronic component and therefore needs to be treated as such, and this is where many lighting companies are failing at present. It is the symbiosis of lighting design and electronics. My R&D Director, Chris, has been instrumental in taking the designs so much further to where they are today.
"I'm very excited by the prospect of the next 12 months. We have LED lights on test now that are total 'world firsts' and I'm itching to get them on to the market.
"As someone once said, regarding our lights - 'its like looking at the sun - only brighter!' Get ready to be amazed."
