RNLB HERBERT JOHN, formerly the Cloughey Co-Down lifeboat 1939 / 1952 and later Youghal, S Ireland 1952 / 1966.

Single engine Liverpool class lifeboat restored to as near original condition as possible by us, using original plans and RNLI equipment sourced as being from this boat when converted to private use.

Powered by Ford D series 4 cylinder diesel engin
Original masts complemented by a recent sailing rig.
A boat for the real enthusiast.
As there are already boats from the same class being used for commercial boat trips, this vessel could easily be licenced for this.
