Transformation for Peel lifeboat station

An RNLI station in Peel is undergoing renovations to make way for a new lifeboat.

Changes to the lifeboat station, situated on the Peel Breakwater, are needed to accommodate the Shannon class all-weather vessel.

The boat which is the first modern all-weather lifeboat to be propelled by water jets, is due to come into service from spring 2020.

After extensive crew training, it is expected to be ready for service in spring 2020, replacing the Ruby Clery which has been in Peel
since 1992.
