Yacht Lamp 700SS LifestyleWeems & Plath has been manufacturing the amazing Yacht Lamp for decades, with few changes made since Sir Humphry Davy first introduced the life-saving lamp in 1815 for miners to use while underground.

This important safety device not only provides light and heat, it is also the safest lamp you can have aboard. Our lamp incorporates Davy’s knowledge that small holes, such as those in a mesh, allow air to pass to the flame, while arresting other firedamp gasses outside, which would have otherwise resulted in an explosion.

With this in mind, the Weems & Plath Yacht Lamp features an enclosed screen inside the built-in smoke bell, small holes in the frame and a glass enclosed flame area. Our lamp is strong enough to stay lit during hurricane force winds, safe enough for outdoor activities such as camping and yet, elegant enough for ambient lighting while entertaining in coastal retreats and log cabins.

FUN FACT: The Olympic flame is safely transported
in airplanes using a Yacht Lamp!
