Default Cabin lighting

Was wondering what type lights are the best for interior cabin lighting besides the single 12v bulb? . 12v L E D , 12v neon strips (like car underbody) A C rope type? Also what about an ac dc converter for a fridge or microwave or lighting ?

I bought these and they work great. You can screw them in place or use the double face Velcro tape and remove when needed like a flashlight. AAA batteries so no extra wiring, 3 different brightnesses push the face on and off.

Cantalupi is the best by far but you will have to pay. we have used them in the piniafrina pf 36 and in barcardi's seaforce ix

The 2007 IBEX show winning Apeiron LED Tri lights.

Yachtlights has them as well.

Each light can have up to 3 colors- flipping it on an off changes the color

You can see a pict of them in blue in the Laveycraft forum (unde r out of the mold Im blown away)

I put 10 in the cockpit and 10 in the "stabin cabin".
I also put Amphibians super blue cree led's on the transom

Sorry I can't see this well. Are the lights on the transom or the end of bunks?
