Lymington Lifeboat Station

Introduction

For over 50 years Lymington RNLI lifeboat has provided search, rescue and lifesaving capability in the western Solent, Needles Channel and eastern sector of Christchurch Bay often working in conjunction with our inshore flank stations at Mudeford, Calshot and Cowes (IOW) and the all-weather Severn Class lifeboat from Yarmouth (IOW) as well as the local Coastguard units and helicopters from Lee on Solent (and historically Portland).

Since our 50th anniversary year (2015) we operate an Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat donated by the family, friends and work colleagues of local man David Bradley, after whom the boat is named.

Operational Area

Lymington Lifeboat Station

 

For over 52 Years an inshore lifeboat has covered an area of the western Solent, the eastern Sector of Christchurch Bay and out to the Needles.

We work in conjunction with our mainland flank stations at Mudeford and Calshot and Isle of Wight flank stations at Yarmouth and Cowes with whom we regularly exercise.

Apart from being on call 24/7/365, our crew and associated flank stations provide immediate rescue options for a number of major yacht events including the annual Round the Island Race.
