First welcome to the website.

With a 12v tester do you have power at each fuse in question? Aren't these circuit breakers?

Go from there...

Welcome aboard.

As Roger said use a volt meter to verify 12V is at the fuses, then at the switches, and then at each fixture.

Do not forget to test the grounds for all these. There may be a common ground for all fixtures not working so one bad wire may fix all.

I have the same boat(2 years older).... Your fuses may be good, but the fuse panel itself may not. Check that you have 12v at the wire terminal connections on both sides of each fuse. My fuses were good, but there was corrosion on the fuse box.

Also check the switches... The anchor light and navigation light switches are wired together(they share a common 12v wire)... Wire may have broken, come off or corroded at the switch.

I would start witha voltmeter before pulling parts. Is 12V getting to the fuse block? Sometime removing and reinstalling fuses fixes these types of problem as an oxide can build up on the contacts.

looking at the wiring diagram the nav and anchor lights are on the same fuse.

I've recently purchased a 2000 2400SCR and joined this forum, and I've got several items that don't work. I've read MANY posts where our boats have an issue with the fuse block itself corroding. The fuse is good but no power gets out the other side...I agree with Diggin2Day, make sure you have power coming out the OTHER side too!

I am getting ready to dig into mine this weekend and see what I can figure out, but I have a question along these lines...in my manual I see TWO fuse blocks and their wiring, and there are enough fused electrical items that two would seem to be necessary--everything listed in the fuse block diagram is an item on my boat. I've done a quick search-around and I can only find the one fuse block under the steering wheel. Does anybody know where the second fuse block is, or is there only one? Thanks!
