Welcome to Mundesley Lifeboat Online


Mundesley Volunteer Lifeboat is entirely independent from the RNLI and supported completely by donations from the public.

The lifeboat is a "Declared Facility", this means that H.M. Coastguard regard it as being on a par with the RNLI.

The Service works closely with other Lifeboats in the area (inshore and offshore), Coastguard Rescue Teams and the Coastguard Rescue Helicopters located at Humberside.

17th April

Mundesley Lifeboat was diverted from training to assist a 22ft yacht sailing towards Wells with a crew member suffering from seasickness this morning. The yacht was struggling in the wind over tide swell approximately 1 mile off Mundesley. 

Mundesley Lifeboat stood alongside the vessel as it made the journey towards Cromer. As the yacht continued up the coast the tide changed and the swell started to die down. The yacht continued its passage and Mundesley Lifeboat was released by Humber Coastguard to continue training.

Visit To Humber Independent Lifeboat

     Members of Mundesley Lifeboat have completed a trip to Humber Independent Lifeboat forging closer ties between the two services. Different areas of training were discussed and different ideas were exchanged.

Below are photos taken with the crew of Humber Lifeboat.




Almost 200 people braved the winter sea at Mundesley Lifeboat's annual Boxing Day Dip. A further 2000 people watched the hardy 'dippers' from the shore. The Dip staged and managed by the Crew and Friends of Mundesley Lifeboat is going from strength to strength with more people going into the sea than any previous year. The proceeds of the bucket collection amounted to over £1165 and will be shared between two important village charities. 'Together We Share' supporting people in need and 'Don't be Alone on Christmas Day' providing a meal for people alone on Christmas Day.

The Crew, directors and Friends of Mundesley Lifeboat would like to thank all those who attended and wish them well with their fund raising.
