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.
