We need a new relief Shannon lifeboat

Engineered by the RNLI, the Shannon has been tested and refined to keep volunteer crews safe at sea. Now with a growing number of Shannons stationed on the coast, we need another in our fast-reaction relief fleet to support them and ensure a 24-hour service around the UK and Ireland.

It costs £2.2M to build a Shannon class lifeboat and they are worth every penny. But, as a charity, it’s only with the help of people like you that we can give our lifesavers what they need.

Let's make our shores safer all round

Even in the harshest conditions, the Shannon is designed to ensure our crews, and those they save, come back home safely. Will you ensure our lifesavers get the very best protection and help fund this new lifeboat?

Every part of the Shannon plays a vital role. Every supporter does too.
