|Our All-weather Lifeboat Centre in Poole officially opens later this month, bringing the design, production and maintenance of our all-weather lifeboat fleet in-house and under one roof for the first time in our history.
This world class centre of engineering excellence will ensure a supply of lifeboats for future generations of lifesavers and save £3M a year once fully operational.
And building a faster 25-knot all-weather lifeboat fleet is critical to our aim of halving coastal drownings in the UK and Republic of Ireland by 2024.
Step inside …
Let David Brook, RNLI Engineering Director, show you around in our video.
Or join a rare tour of this impressive lifeboat factory at our Open Weekend on 22–23 August.
