All weather lifeboat station with a slipway for launching.
Inshore lifeboat station, which uses a carriage to launch lifeboats.

Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) stations are the bases for the RNLI's fleet of search and rescue lifeboats that cover the coastal waters around the entire British Isles, as well as major inland waterways.

The service was established in 1824 and is operated largely by volunteers. Its headquarters are at Poole, Dorset and it is a registered charity in both the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.

Key[edit]

Lifeboat types[edit]

The types of boats provided at each station and the launching methods vary depending on local needs. If more than one boat is provided they are sometimes stationed in separate buildings at different locations in the same town. RNLI boats fall into three broad groups:

Launch methods[edit]

'Tooltrack' tractor launching an inshore lifeboat at Minehead

The principal launching methods are:

  • Carriage – an ALB or ILB is pushed into the water on a carriage by a tractor
  • Davit – an ILB is lowered into the water by a crane
  • Launchway – an ILB is pushed into the water on a carriage by hand
  • Moored afloat – an ALB or ILB is kept in the water alongside the lifeboat station or nearby, in which case a small boarding boat is provided so that the crew can reach it.
  • Slipway – an ALB slides down a slipway straight into the water.
  • Transporter – hovercraft are kept on the rear of trucks that can transport and offload them anywhere

Divisions[edit]

The following lists do not include the lifeguard patrolled beaches which also have their own equipment including inflatable boats and jetskis. The information is correct to 2009 unless noted otherwise,[1] and is set out like the RNLI's divisional model. As far as possible it follows a clockwise route around the coast.
