Creative Lighting Concepts designs and supplies both off the shelf and custom LED and Fibre Optic Lighting systems to some of the world’s most prestigious superyacht companies.

The majority of our work within the industry is custom in nature as we are often contracted to do what the others cannot due to our specialist design and manufacture capabilities. All of the lighting systems we design are manufactured to the highest standards and we provide all technical support for the life of the product.

As lighting consultants we are highly trained in all facets of the design process ensuring the solutions we specify for our clients achieve or exceed expectation. Our goal is to evoke emotion through creative design!

Please contact Simon McKay through our contacts page to discuss your lighting needs or special requirements.

Silver Yachts – M.Y Silverfast

The 77m Superyacht M.Y Silverfast is yacht 4 in the Silver Series of yachts built by Silver Yachts in W.A Australia. She motored from Australia to Europe is 21 days with one fuel stop, and is the most ecofuel-efficient vessel in the Silver Series.

Creative Lighting Concepts continued with its LED lighting supply for the build of Silverfast with over 500m of LED strip being supplied, with the majority of this being our spot free LED strip mounted into an aluminium extrusion with an opal cover which illuminates like a fluorescent tube with no spots upon the diffuser surface.

The strip was used extensively throughout Silverfast as indirect lighting in coves, recesses behind art work, beneath bed suites and associated furnishings in all cabins and in book shelves to stunning effect. All of the LED strips lengths were labelled according their lighting circuit number and came complete with LED driver, making it easy for Silver Yachts to identify where the huge number of LED strip lengths and drivers went on board Silverfast.

Our 316 marine grade LED Courtesy lights were once again used extensively throughout the vessel, and so was the fibre optic lighting system, designed lightsources to create an elegant line of light from port mid ship around to starboard mid ship. Colour correction filtering was fitted to colour match the warm white of the lightsources with other lighting on board Silverfast.

Custom LED uplighters were developed with an incredible 160 deg beam angle which were flush mounted to uplight the super structure. With a very small footprint and shallow mounting depth, the luminaire was a clear winner with the team at Silver Yachts.

Oceanco - M.Y Nirvana

Creative Lighting Concepts was proud to see the launch of the Superyacht ‘Nirvana’, which immediately went into one of the top 100 Superyachts of all time.

CLC was commissioned to provide the LED technology and control gear to illuminate the Compression Post lights, Day Bed Umbrella Bollards, Fixed Seating Umbrella Bollards, Bulk Head Luminaires and Pool Bollards, all dimmable from 0-100% via the onboard Lutron Lighting Control System.

A thermal management system was designed with sensors installed onto all of the LED panels we supplied so that in the event of over temperature, the LED panels would flash 3 times before dimming themselves down to a safe operating temperature, preventing system failure.

The LED control gear was assembled into Sorrel fire proof cabinets and shipped to Holland for easy installation by the team at Oceanco. They simply had to provide 240V input power and a PWM signal from the Lutron Lighting System to each of the cabinets.

Silver Yachts - M.Y Smerelda

The 77m Superyacht M.Y Smeralda is yacht 3 in the Silver Series of yachts built by Hanseatic Marine in W.A Australia. Smeralda is the world’s fastest single hull aluminium yacht in the world, set a water speed record upon her launch on the route from Fremantle to Dubai.

Creative Lighting Concepts increased its LED lighting supply on this build for Smeralda with over 400m of LED strip being supplied, with the majority of this being our spot free LED strip mounted into an aluminium extrusion with an opal cover which illuminates like a fluorescent tube with no spots upon the diffuser surface.
The strip was used extensively throughout Smeralda as indirect lighting in coves, recesses behind art work, beneath bed suites and associated furnishings in all cabins and in book shelves to stunning effect. All of the LED strips lengths were labelled according their lighting circuit number and came complete with LED driver, making it easy for Hanseatic Marine to identify where the huge number of LED strip lengths and drivers went on board Smeralda.

We were commissioned design and supply an LED Courtesy light which would become a standard issue on the Silver Series of yachts. Our solution was a 1W LED 316 marine grade stainless steel fixture in 3000K warm white with a 56 deg beam spread. Due to the confined spaces the fixtures were to be installed into, the on board electronics were removed and Hanseatic marine were offered the choice of a 12V DC or 24V DC operating system. The luminaires were designed to the requirements of the team at Hanseatic Marine, and as such a threaded body with PVC locking nut was provided enabling ease of installation throughout the vessel.

A fibre optic lighting system was also designed and supplied for Smeralda which included multiple lightsources and fibre optic side lighting fibre daisy chained through the lightsources to create an elegant line of light from port mid ship around to starboard mid ship. Colour correction filtering was fitted to colour match the warm white of the lightsources with other lighting on board Smeralda.

Creative Lighting Concepts is very proud of its ongoing strong relationship with Hanseatic Marine and we are looking forward working on yacht 4 of the Silver Series coming in 2015.

Ghost 2 Superyacht

The 36.5m Superyacht M.Y Ghost 2 was built by Warren Yachts of Brisbane Australia under the title of the S120 and was the final yacht built by Warren yachts.

Creative Lighting Concepts provided some very cutting edge LED and fibre optic lighting technology for Ghost 2, which included our very own spot free LED strip mounted into an aluminium extrusion with an opal cover which illuminates like a fluorescent tube with no spots upon the diffuser surface. This was used extensively in coves throughout Ghost 2 to form part of the indirect lighting on board.

1W LED Courtesy Lights in 2700K warm white were supplied with a polished marine finish to illuminate the deck areas at night. The Taipan LED Courtesy Light had on board electronics allowing it to operate off 9 – 28V AC or DC and came with a 56 deg beam spread.

A custom fibre optic anchor well lighting system was designed and built by Creative Lighting Concepts to illuminate the water surface before anchors were dropped. The system incorporated 4 x recessed 316 marine grade stainless steel lighting heads per anchor well in a polished marine finish that were illuminated by 2 x 150W metal halide lightsources with colour correction filtering to match other on board lighting.

Fibre optic lighting was also incorporated into the step tread lighting on the fly bridge stairs, aft deck step, forward interior crew stairs and mid ship guest stairs. Each stair system used 1mm fibre optic end lighting fibres evenly spaced across the stair tread and was powered by a 50W Kinetic Lightsource which was dimmable. Creative Lighting Concepts was commissioned to conduct the install of the fibre optic lighting systems and is very proud of its work on board Ghost 2.

M.Y Constellation

Creative Lighting Concepts was commissioned to come up with an LED lighting solution to replace ailing recessed fluorescent fixtures mounted into the galley range hood canopy on board M.Y Constellation. The brief included ensuring the fixtures were IP rated to prevent steam ingress and to dramatically raise the light level upon the cooking surfaces.

Our design solution utilised a recessed aluminium extrusion housing 55W of very high output LED strip in 4000K CCT, providing 5200 lumens of light, dramatically increasing the light levels upon the cooking surfaces and pleasing the chefs to no end.

M.Y Silver Zwei

The 77m Superyacht M.Y Silver Zwei is yacht 2 in the Silver Series of yachts built by Hanseatic Marine in W.A Australia.

Creative Lighting Concepts supplied our spot free LED strip mounted into an aluminium extrusion with an opal cover which illuminates like a fluorescent tube with no spots upon the diffuser surface.

The strip was used extensively throughout Silver Zwei as indirect lighting in coves, recesses behind art work, beneath bed suites and associated furnishings in all cabins and in book shelves to stunning effect. All of the LED strips lengths were labelled according their lighting circuit number and came complete with LED driver, making it easy for Hanseatic Marine to identify where the huge number of LED strip lengths and drivers went on board Silver Zwei.

This was our first project for Hanseatic Marine and though our professional manner and the high quality LED luminaires supplied for Silver Zwei, we became the preferred supplier of LED lighting for the Silver Series of yachts. A relationship we are very proud of.

M.Y Dragonfly

In 2014 the 77m Superyacht M.Y Dragonfly came into the port of Brisbane’s Rivergate Shipyard for a refit and Creative Lighting Concepts was called upon due to our extensive LED lighting supply for Hanseatic Marine’s Silver Series of yachts.

Our new 1W LED Courtesy was called upon to replace the failing courtesy lights previously used before our new design was implemented. Due to the high output of our LED’s, we had to limit the input current to the fixtures so that the light intensity matched the remainder of the existing courtesy lights on board.

We supplied LED strip lighting to areas which were not originally supplied by us during her build and this was also limited in output to match existing LED strip lighting in the surrounding areas.
