Welcome to Penlee Lifeboat Station Website
Penlee Lifeboat Station is located in Newlyn Harbour, Cornwall. We have a very rich heritage as we are descendent from the first Lifeboat Station in Cornwall (Penzance Branch) and the thirteenth Lifeboat station in the UK. Our volunteer crew number approx. 25 with another 10 volunteer shore crew and our volunteer branch and fundraisers total in excess of 35.
We have 2 lifeboats at Penlee, an All Weather Severn Class, ‘The Ivan Ellen’, stationed in 2003 and an Inshore B-Class Atlantic 85, ‘The Mollie and Ivor Dent’, stationed in 2016.
We do welcome visitors to our station, however we cannot accept groups at present due to covid restrictions.
