Celebrating the Atlantic 85 lifeboat
This week we're celebrating the Atlantic 85, a key player in the RNLI fleet. It's powered by two 115hp engines and can self-right if it capsizes.
In its first 15 years of service, after joining our fleet in 2005, the Atlantic 85 hit some impressive numbers:
- 23,103 launches
- 22,825 people rescued
- 814 lives saved.
