Help with my Masthead Light

Hello again, Here I am with another question. The other day I was walking buy my mast and happen to notice that the masthead light lens was broken. This unit was on the boat when I bought it several years ago. The mast is out and I took some pictures of the light. The only thing that is on the light is the words “Made in Germany”. I am hoping that someone can identify the manufacturer and model number so that I can get a new lens

looks like an Aqua signal 40 mast head light

That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.

That must be a combination anchor/tri color. I see no other reason for there to be two bulbs arranged vertically like that.

Hellamarine and Aquasignal both make similar lights. Hella is made in Germany but it looks more like an Aquasignal.

Take a look here:

The masthead light is the all white light part way up the mast, no? This would be a tri-color or anchor light?

Good point. Calling the light that's part way up the mast the steaming light is less confusing!

Steaming / masthead points forward, use only under power, halfway up the mast.

Trying to locate and replace just the lense may be more of a pain than simply replacing the entire fixture.
