Scarborough lifeboat station

Scarborough Lifeboat Station

Founded in 1801, Scarborough is one of the oldest stations still in operation. Its new state-of-the-art lifeboathouse opened on 27 November 2016. The crews have received 35 awards for gallantry and today the station operates a Shannon class all-weather lifeboat and a D class inshore lifeboat.
