Weems & Plath Yacht Lamp Model #700

solid cast brass

Weems & Plath 700 Yacht Lamp

$237.00 $419.00
The Weems & Plath Yacht Lamp functions as a safe & reliable, self-contained unit that is unaffected by wind, rain, sea spray, and motion.  . It's also the only lamp of its type where the main components are solid cast brass, machined and tooled rather than stamped out on a press. This makes the lamp a little heavier but provides a much higher tolerance for the usual bumps and shocks that can be encountered aboard a seagoing yacht - especially in heavy weather conditions.  .

The flame is windproof and completely encased by an extra-thick glass chimney with gaskets top and bottom, plus an internal mesh screen and 5 brass rods for exterior shock protection. 


"...the casing and connector rods are constructed of solid, cast brass (not stamped) which is then machined and polished prior to assembly. The result is an extremely durable lamp (3 lbs dry weight) which is unaffected by the saltwater environment, and fully capable to withstand the bumps, shocks and constant movement of everyday life at sea."



Available in several finishes, Model #700 is the original, all-brass version. Model #700SS has a stainless steel bonnet and heat shield, and #700BK combines an elegant black powdercoat finish. Each lamp proudly carries its own individual Serial Number, which is stamped to the brass nameplate on the front bonnet. 

With versatile placement options, the 700 can stand independently on a table or countertop, or it can be suspended from its hook, remaining portable for use at the chart table, in the cockpit, or wherever else it's needed. 

A gimbal bracket option (solid brass) is available for mounting to a wall or bulkhead, thus enabling the lamp to pivot freely and remain upright regardless of the sea-state or movement of the ship.  There's also a wall hanger (solid brass) available for placement inside the home, or on the porch or patio. The lamp is easily removed from either mount, and so having both types allows the lamp to be placed interchangeably between home and the boat.
