Invergordon Lifeboat RNLI 13-37 arriving at her new permanent home

The state-of-the-art Shannon class vessel arrived at her new permanent home of Invergordon on Sunday 1st November 2020.

In a fitting welcome to the town, five of the stations volunteer crew, with a combined service to the RNLI of over 125 years, sailed her into Invergordon. She arrived at precisely at 1:37pm; the time equivalent to the vessels number 13-37. And the significance of the number is extra special to this lifeboat as contained within it are the names of over 9,000 loved ones in a new fundraising initiative for the charity.

Arriving in the Cromarty Firth for the first time, the Shannon was escorted by the stations current all-weather Trent class lifeboat ‘Douglas Aikman Smith’ carried a slow pass of the towns waterfront with the Trent leading the way to her new berth in the town’s West Harbour with water canon display from the local Global Energy Group tug ‘Strathdee’.

The RNLI latest class in the all-weather fleet, the Shannon class all-weather lifeboat coming in at £2.1million was seen as a fitting replacement for the stations current Trent class lifeboat which is nearing the 25 year life service, and a step towards the RNLI’s goal of an all 25knot fleet. The Shannon is powered by the vast twin Hamilton water jets as opposed to more traditional propellers giving it more increased manoeuvrability and the ability to operate in shallower waters, ideally suited to Britain’s vast and rugged coastline.

With a top speed of 25 knots and a range of 250 nautical miles, the self-righting lifeboat is ideally suited for offshore searches or equally rescues in calmer shallower waters, her twin Scania 650hp engines provides enough power to tow large vessels – and her waterjet technology allows her to manoeuvre in shallow waters, much easier than with traditional propeller seen on our current lifeboats

The team at Invergordon as a whole were delighted to be given the news that a Shannon lifeboat would be the replacement for ‘Douglas Aikman Smith’ and were further delighted and humbled when it was announced that the Shannon would also hold the first Launch a Memory campaign decal where for the first time, supporters could apply to have their loved one's name printed in the letters and numbers on the hull of lifeboat, which will save lives at sea for years to come.

The Shannon carries the name ‘RNLB Agnes AP Barr’ and holds RNLI 13-37 on her hull, depicting the 13m of the vessel length and 37 indicating the 37th Shannon class lifeboat built.

Andrew Murray, RNLI Coxswain at Invergordon Lifeboat Station, says: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Agnes A P Barr to Invergordon – especially as it will have the names of over 9,500 loved ones who are being commemorated in this wonderful way. It’s very humbling to see the special decal on our new Shannon-class. The volunteer crew at Invergordon Lifeboat Station feel honoured to receive something which means so much to so many people and will last for years to come. We feel privileged to be able to launch with people’s memories by our side, while helping those in need in all weathers.”
