Severn Class Lifeboats

The Severn Class all-weather lifeboats is the largest operated by the RNLI at 17 metre (55ft 9in) and the mainstay of their fleet, providing coverage up to 100 miles (160 km) offshore.

Berthon Boat Co. built 21 of the 46 Severn Class Lifeboats between 1996 and 2004, with the majority being stationed in the far flung reaches of UK waters. All the Berthon built Severn Class lifeboats are still in service today, a testament to the Berthon build quality.
