Many boats were never designed to have the kind of lighting flexibility that you have at home. The fixed ceiling lights are often inadequate for task work but too bight for just lazy lounging. Changing lighting is often a long winded process as it's often the light fittings themselves that need attention and that means moving or replacing them which will leave mounting holes and other marks. So, perhaps then you need to look at designing new lighting as part of a minor refit where ceiling and other panels are replaced as part of the job.
Kingfisher Boat Services has a wealth of experience in dealing boat electrical matters. We have BMET certificated personnel who can make sure that your electrics are safe and up to standard
Many people believe that 12v electrics aren't dangerous. Please be assured that the danger of fire is ever present if something goes wrong. You may not be thrown across the room if you come into contact with 12v DC, but that's no indication that it's "safe".
Boat electrics are often viewed as a simple DIY area. But, if your true knowledge of electricity starts and ends with replacing the batteries on the TV remote, please don't adopt a Jeremy Clarkson attitude of "how hard can it be" and attack your boat's wiring.
