The new Tamar lifeboat will replace the Tyne-class Garside boat which has been in service at St Davids since 1988.

The Garside has launched 329 times since then, saved 79 lives and rescued 339 people.

"Bringing the new lifeboat home to St Davids for the very first time will be an incredibly proud moment for me.
This really is a fantastic boat and I have every confidence that she will serve us well and help us to save more lives off the Pembrokeshire coast.
For the RNLI crew, safety is paramount and this is a lifeboat which has been very carefully designed to enable volunteers to go to sea in the safest possible way.
It is also faster than our current Tyne class lifeboat and has many features that will aid search and rescue."

– DAI JOHN, ST DAVIDS RNLI COXSWAIN
