a Memory

Celebrate the life of someone you love on the side of a very special lifeboat

Launch a Memory is an opportunity to add a name to the letters and numbers on a Shannon class lifeboat, to remember a loved one or celebrate someone still with us.

We’ve developed a range of mementos, so that you can keep your loved one’s memory next to you.

Launch a Memory: Eric's Legend

Relief lifeboat Eric’s Legend 13-40 was named by Jean Cass in memory of her late husband Eric Cass.

Without relief lifeboat like Eric's Legend, we couldn't save lives at sea 24/7. When a station's lifeboat needs routine maintenance or repair, relief lifeboats step in to save lives at sea.
