Our lifeboat station projects

Find out more about the major lifeboat station alteration and construction projects we have planned and completed around the UK and Ireland.

Every second counts when launching our lifeboats and each class of lifeboat requires specific shore facilities such as a boathouse, slipway or pontoon berth. The safety and comfort of our volunteer lifeboat crews and the protection of their lifeboats is paramount. So it's crucial they have lifeboat stations that are fit for purpose.

Work to maintain, improve and rebuild our lifeboat stations is constant to accommodate new classes of lifeboats, update crew facilities and, ultimately, to ensure an effective lifesaving service.

With 94% of our total income coming from kind donations, we rely on your support to meet the costs of lifeboat station projects and maintenance.
