St. Helier lifeboat station is home to two RNLI lifeboats:
- the Tamar Class All Weather Lifeboat George Sullivan
- and the Atlantic 85 Inshore Lifeboat David Page
These two lifeboats are looked after and maintained by Jonathan Cornick, the station mechanic, and operated by a crew of volunteers led by Coxswain Andy Hibbs.
For more information see the Crew page.
The George Sullivan entered service on 16th June 2009 and is moored alongside in close proximity to the lifeboat station. She provides all-weather lifeboat cover around the coast of Jersey.
The David Page entered service in January 2007 and is kept on a hydro hoist mounted on a pontoon in the harbour, which the crew reach by inflatable Y boat. She provides quick response and close inshore cover along the Island's coastline.
The St Helier lifeboat station is found on the Albert Quay in St Helier Harbour and includes a small museum as well as being home to the RNLI Guild Shop - the perfect place to find unusual presents as well as the famous RNLI tea towels and Christmas cards!
Group visits to the station can be arranged through Charlie Gravett, the Lifeboat Education Visits Officer - see the school visits page for more information and note that you don't have to be a school group to visit - other groups are equally welcome!
