Southerrn Africa formerly the Dover lifeboat 1949 / 67, reserve service to 1981. Sold to Uruguay as lifeboat Valpariso 111.
Retired and returned to the UK in private ownership late 1990’s where she was refitted with Ford 6 cylinder diesels as she had been in her later years with RNLI.
Southern Africa is the last 51 foot BARNETT class lifeboat built and the only one with alloy superstructure.
The vesssel is unique in that it is not converted and appears in largely original layout, a rare gem.
Owner is keen to see her find a new home and be fully restored.
