MVS Joins Tribute to Poole Lifeboat


MVS Poole vessels Avocet and St. Elin, along with the unit jet ski, have joined in a flotilla to say goodbye to Poole’s all weather lifeboat.

The 47ft Tyne-class vessel has been replaced by a D-class lifeboat that will cover the 14 square miles of harbour and surrounding bay along with the existing 28ft inshore lifeboat.

A new faster all-weather boat is based eight miles away in Swanage and will deal with any major incidents the two smaller craft cannot attend.
