• About Us

    Cowes lifeboat station was founded in 1986 and RNLI took ownership in 2008.

    Cowes Lifeboat Station is involved in over 40 Search and Rescue (SOR) operations within the Solent from their current base in Shepard’s wharf marina.

    This is a charitable organisation and funded by the public as well as others and what is remarkable is that a legacy enabled this lifeboat station to acquire a new inshore lifeboat.

    The B-810 Tabbycat is one of the new generation of RNLI B-class Atlantic inshore lifeboats, first developed by the RNLI from a design originated at Atlantic College, South Wales.

    James Gordon Samson left a legacy to the RNLI from which the Atlantic 85 lifeboat Tabbycat was funded. Tabbycat was named at the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in Poole, Dorset, in 2007.

    The crew and volunteers at Cowes are very proud of their work and  welcome and  encourage station visits which can be arranged through the Lifeboat Visitor Officer  who can accommodate visits during the weekend or pre-arranged school or club visits during the week.

    If you would like to visit Cowes Lifeboat Station or you would like the LVO to present to your school or club then please contact the Lifeboat Visitor Officer at [email protected].
