Harwich Lifeboat Station
Sure and Steadfast

The new Atlantic 75 lifeboat "Sure and Steadfast" B789, was named on 18th of May 2003 after the fund rasing efforts of The Boys' Brigade.

The Atlantic 75 is a rigid inflatable lifeboat, introduced in the latter half of 2005 as the latest development of the B class. It has a manually operated self-righting mechanism and is capable of being beached in an emergency without sustaining damage to engines or steering gear. The Atlantic 75 can be operated safely in daylight in a force 6/7 and at night in a force 5/6.
