Lifeboats See & Do


Inshore Lifeboat Centre (ILC) is state-of-the-art RNLI boatyard occupying two acres on the East Cowes bank of the River Medina. The ILC is an internationally renowned centre of excellence for its work involving inflatable and rigid inflatable lifeboats (RIBs).

The RNLI constructs up to 60% of the lifeboats it needs in its own purpose-built manufacturing facility in Cowes.

Visitors are welcome to see the work of the Inshore Lifeboat Centre firsthand, but are asked to book beforehand.
