RNLI SELSEY LIFEBOAT STATION
Reside Construction building a new lifeboat station for the RNLI at Selsey, West Sussex.
This high-profile commercial project involves the replacement of a 30 year-old boathouse with a new facility, removing an existing pier to prepare for a modern all-weather lifeboat. While fundraising for the new craft continues, the completed boathouse will store the station’s two lifeboats together.
Selsey Lifeboat Station was established in 1861, and is a key strategic location for the RNLI for an all weather lifeboat. Selsey currently operates a Tyne class lifeboat (Voluntary Worker) and a D class inshore lifeboat (Betty and Thomas Moore). The new Shannon lifeboat is eight knots faster than its Tyne class predecessor, and with its improved technology will increase Selsey’s capability to save lives at sea and secure the local RNLI service for another 50 years.
We are delighted to help the RNLI and its volunteer lifesaving crew meet the demands of a 21st century rescue service by providing a first class lifeboat station for the region.
