Plymouth is home to two lifeboats, the larger All Weather Lifeboat, named Sybil Mullen Glover and the smaller but faster Inshore Lifeboat, named Millenium Forester. Based in Millbay Marina, both lifeboats provide cover 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to the Port of Plymouth, including the rivers Tamar, Lyhner, Tavy, Plym, Yealm and Erme; and the surrounding coastline into both Bigbury and Whitsand Bays.
Plymouth Lifeboat Station is part of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, which is funded entirely by donations.
