Yes, many replacement bulbs are designed to do just that. However, most of the replacement bulbs are NOT USCG CERTIFIED for use in any fixtures. This can be a problem should you be involved in a collision.
The Aquasignal Series 32 LED fixtures are pretty reasonably priced as are some of the Hella LED fixtures, and far more reliable than a replacement bulb in an incandescent fixture. LED navigation light fixtures are often going to be far more reliable, since they are often sealed, usually have better heat dissipation, and better voltage regulation than replacement bulbs can.
Be aware that not all LED light fixtures are approved for use on sailboats, and this is mainly due to the vertical angle of coverage, which generally needs to be greater on sailboat light fixtures.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
