need a source for these type of festoon lights!

Hello all!

Please see attached image

Any idea where I can source replacement lights of this type?

I am looking for this particular shape/size so as it is seated on a base embedded in the roof ( ... unfortunately not really evident from this pic!)

thanks
jay

Not knowing age of boat makes it difficult but have you asked Dufour ? I realise they are unlikely to still be using this model in current production but maybe just maybe they might know the brand.

I'm presuming there are no marks on the fitting itself.

the boat is 35years old and I suspect the lights too!

No markings/brand at all on the units (have 4 in total)

good idea - didnt occur to me to try dufour!

They resemble the old type of interior lightings we found in cars some 20years ago that where postioned above the rear view mirror!

thanks again.

Jay.
