OwnerRoyal National Lifeboat Institution

Borth Lifeboat Station (based in Borth, Ceredigion, Wales) was first established by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) in June 1966.[1] The station currently operates a D-class (IB1) lifeboat.

The station was opened as a result of a campaign led by Aran Morris MBE who said that his memories of Arctic convoys of World War II inspired him to press for the lifeboat station because it used to take rescuers 20 minutes to get to Borth from Aberystwyth and Aberdyfi during an emergency.
