    What are the requirements of the circuit? If it is just for fun, that is relatively easy. However, for a critical application it will require redundant systems.

    What Navlights? is this a combo red/green, single stern light on a pole? More details needed. I have a typical diagram for the combo light and stern/anchor light if this is what you have?

    He wants an alarm to sound when one of the lights is burnt. Usually, that is done by using the power side of the light as ground reference. If the bulb burns, it triggers a switch because there is no ground path.
    munthersaif: do you have the part available? It is possible you could get a direct replacement.

    What if the buzzer fails? Better include a test circuit for that!
    Replace the lights with sealed LED units and forget it.

    The diagram does not include a circuit for an alarm. Someone smarter than me can, I'm sure, figure out how to do that. I actually drew this to add to my website simply because I needed to determine why my anchor light is not working.
