Check out this listing for a Salvaged Vintage Suez Canal Searchlight, manufactured by the Sanshin Dengu company in Japan. This is a unique piece because it has its original stand with it. These were made specifically for ships that transit the Suez Canal.
We have left this searchlight with its original components. We have not tested it for its ability to operate.
For the Suez Canal, there is a specially dedicated mast of signal lights that must be on any ship that passes through the canal. Ships must follow a strict guide to know which lights must be lit under what circumstances. One of the lamps is connected to a telegraph key on the bridge. Under certain conditions, this signal lamp is used to signal other ships as specified by the manual.
