Lyme Regis Lifeboat Station operates a 24 foot Atlantic 75 inshore lifeboat capable of a top speed of 34 knots (approx. 40mph). The "Pearl of Dorset - B741" started service on the 29th of September 1997 and was funded almost entirely by local donations, the boat is equipped with the very latest in safety and navigational technology. Normally carrying a crew of three or four the rigid inflatable is launched and retrieved by a DO-DO (meaning Drive On, Drive Off) trailer unit.
The volunteer crew of fully trained lifeboat men is augmented by a team of launchers, tractor drivers, engineers and other helpers, led by the Duty Deputy Launching Authorities, under the supervision of the Lifeboat Operations Manager. Launches are initiated and co-ordinated by MRSC Portland. Every station member is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
