Sue Roberts Ex RNLI D - Class

The former RNLI D-Class Inshore Lifeboat joined Humber Rescue in 2015 and is powered by the 50 HP Mariner engine. The size of the vessel is ideal for conditions on the Humber, allowing it to go closer to the shoreline to conduct searches or to access areas with less water.


Often crewed with three crew members, a typical launch will consist of a Coxswain, Navigator and a third crew member. Despite its size, IRB-1 (Also known as Sue Roberts), has the equipment to tow other vessels, carry out casualty transfers and other search and rescue taskings.

Length: 5m

Speed: 25 knots

Crew: 2-4

Year built: 2010 - refit 2021
