Largest Caribbean retailer, Budget Marine, will carry LED marine lights from Orca Green Marine Technology in catalog and through stores located in St. Thomas, St. Maartin, Antigua, Grenada, Trinidad, Curacao, and Bonaire

Orca Green Marine Technology Corporation (OGM) announces today that Budget Marine will begin carrying OGM’s LED Navigation lights in their Caribbean stores and through their annual catalog. As the leading retailer and wholesaler of pleasure boat marine equipment in the Caribbean, Budget Marine established a reputation for product variety and quality at competitive pricing. Their slogan, “WE STOCK WHAT SAILOR’S WANT” is a direct reflection of their commitment to boaters’ needs.

We are delighted to count Budget Marine as one of our valued distribution partners,” said Hobie Caldwell, OGM’s co-founder and CEO. “With many of our customers all across the world spending time cruising and racing throughout the Caribbean, it’s good to know there is a Budget Marine store available for them at virtually any port.”

Budget Marine’s philosophy is to make the Caribbean boating experience the best it can be and to make products available for them to optimize the superb conditions of the Caribbean waters. Of course, the tropical environment is tough on marine equipment in general, so Budget Marine focuses on supplying equipment and supplies that stand up to the onslaught from heat and salt air. Two of OGM’s most popular LED navigation lights include the first USCG LED Tricolor/Anchor combination which uses a mere 6W (0.5 amps) of power at 12V and the Anchor only light with power consumption at only 2.4W (0.2 amps). These lights provide boaters with a compelling solution to the long-standing issue of power consumption and reliability while on longer passages or at anchor. With power consumption at only 2.4W (0.2 amps), boats at anchor can ensure anchoring safety all night while limiting power drainage.

Budget Marine marks the latest of a growing number of international retailers and distributors carrying the innovative line of LED navigation products and the only distributor located in the Caribbean area.
