The Atlantic 85 Claire and David Delves is replacing Alantic 75 Bob Turnbull which has been the station’s inshore lifeboat since the year 2000. Unlike the all-weather Trent Esme Anderson which lays afloat the station’s inshore lifeboat is kept within the boathouse and launched by being lowered into the sea via a davit. As the new boat is larger than its predecessor building work has been necessary to enlarge the inshore lifeboat accommodation which has been funded by Trinity House.

The Ramsgate’s volunteer crew are currently undergoing training to familiarise themselves with their new boat and when this is completed Bob Turnbull will be withdrawn from the station.
