Marina Visitors Spot Two RNLI Tamars

18 November 2010

RNLI TAMARSVisitors to Neyland Marina in Pembrokeshire in recent weeks have had the rare opportunity of seeing two of the RNLI's state-of-the-art Tamar class all-weather lifeboats berthed there.

The first in - for repairs to one of her engines - was the Angle lifeboat Mark Mason (16-11), which remained at the marina for three days.

She was replaced at Angle by the Victor Freeman (16-13), which had been on relief duty at Tenby for many months, until that station's Tamar Haydn Miller (16-02) returned in August from a major refit.

When work on the Mark Mason was completed, the Neyland berth was taken over by the Victor Freeman, which remained at the marina for a further two weeks.

Marina manager James Cotton said that, as RNLI ambassadors, Neyland Yacht Haven Ltd did not charge berthing for any RNLI vessels - a generous gesture which saved the lifesaving charity over £550 in charges of £34.88 per night for a 16 metre vessel staying in the lower basin.
