3 Simple Ways to Upgrade your Boat

There are lots of simple ways to upgrade your boat without spending loads of time and money! From onboard boat lighting to new boat seats and marine stereo systems, there are plenty of accessories you can introduce to make your boating experience smooth sailing.

 1. Instal LED lighting

LED boat lighting is increasing in popularity - and for good reason too! These small energy-efficient lighting alternatives are more environmentally-friendly, using around 90 per cent less energy than incandescent lightbulbs to give you peace of mind and a healthier bank balance!

LED options such as the Push Button LED Down Lights with Surface and Flush Mount don't intrude on floor space and are incredibly easy to instal. Both are 100mm in diameter and provide excellent light coverage. LED strips are a popular choice for fishing, especially those casting out at night. The adhesive strip can attach to exterior or interior surfaces, giving your deck and cabin a glow which attracts bait, closely followed by fish! 

 2. Replace old boat seating

If your boat seats are looking tired or a little worse for wear, there are lots of options which are comfortable and practical!

At Hunts Marine we stock a wide range of seating options to suit every style and budget. A popular choice is the Deluxe Folding Seat. This choice offers long-lasting comfort and security, and comes in a variety of colours to meet your aesthetic. If you're after a more premium seating option, our Flip Back Seat in White is a great choice, providing both forward and backward seating positions which is ideal for multipurpose boats.

For added comfort, especially on open water, bench seat cushions can be attached with press studs for easy removal, are covered in a UV stabilized vinyl fabric and some even have side pockets to store personal items.

 3. Add a boat stereo system

A boat stereo system can improve your boating experience and create a soundtrack for your next fishing expedition or river trip.

The Fusion Outdoor Panel Stereo with Bluetooth has everything you’ll need! This plug & play audio entertainment system has built-in Class-D amplification, stereo source selection of Bluetooth, AM/FM radio, USB and AUX, two 3” speakers and a large surface bass radiator all combined in a perfectly tuned enclosure. Designed for easy installation, and with three mounting options available to create a professional finish with a maximum of only one cut-out required, the Panel-Stereo is a seriously versatile solution.

The Fusion Stereo Active is the world's first purpose-built waterproof floating stereo that was designed to withstand the ruggedness of life on water. Thanks to the dual 40 watt custom - designed directional speaker system and passive radiator, expect crystal clear audio delivery no matter where you are or what you're doing. The stereo comes complete with mounting system so you can securely attach it to your deck or rigger boat with ease. 

Looking for something simpler? Our Multimedia in-dash stereo systems or Bluetooth AM/FM Stereo Receiver will work wonders!
