POSEIDON-1750 marks one of the biggest Ferris Wheels in the USA

Sealite’s POSEIDON-1750 Ocean Buoys with the world’s most popular and versatile marine lanterns have been installed at The Seattle Great Wheel to mark an exclusion zone for all marine traffic.

The Seattle Great Wheel is the largest observation wheel on the west coast, standing 175 feet tall. The wheel has 42 fully-enclosed gondolas, holds over 300 people at any given time and extends nearly 40 feet beyond the end of the pier, over Elliott Bay.

Sealite assisted Manson Construction Company in all aspects of the project including helping with the U.S. Coast Guard regulations and what was needed for the setup and installation of the customised buoys.

Chosen for their quality and easy installation, Sealite’s POSEIDON-1750 buoys provided the perfect solution to ensure safety to the popular tourist attraction.

Sealite demonstrates the importance of working with Coast Guards for regulation purposes and providing customised products for their customers’ needs.


Sealite was very helpful in all aspects of the process from helping with the Coast Guard regulations and what was needed, to the actual installation.

-Golan Haver

“As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15 ™S) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order with Dana shortly keep up the good work.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.”
