RNLI - Barmouth Lifeboat Station


Welcome to Barmouth Lifeboat Web Site.

We hope you will find the site informative and interesting.

We are sad to announce that we have taken the decision to cancel our fundraising events until the end of May in the first instance. This includes our Easter event, The VE celebration tea party and the ever popular Boathouse rocks. We will review the later fundraising events in due course. Our RNLI Shop remains closed for the time being.

We need to take responsibility in keeping the public, our fundraisers and our volunteer crew as safe and healthy as we can. The boathouse remains operational and our volunteer crew are ready to act as the pagers sound

Barmouth is an RNLI "Explore" category station offering you the opportunity to enjoy the station and lifeboats close at hand, all free of charge. Subject to operational requirements and availability of staff, you can go inside and look around the station. Please look at our Contact & Visits page for more information.

Pictured here is Barmouth's latest RNLB "Ella Larsen", a Shannon class lifeboat which arrived on station in March 2019.

Barmouth lifeboat station has operated an all weather lifeboat for nearly 180 years. Today, a carriage-launched Mersey class and an inshore D class lifeboat launch over the beach to avoid the harbour bar. Lifeboat crews are volunteers, who come from all walks of life, and give up their time and comfort to carry out rescues and save lives at sea on the lifeboats.

Thirteen awards for gallantry have been presented at Barmouth.

This website is dedicated to all those who have served on the Barmouth Lifeboats since the early 1820's and to the volunteer crews who continue to serve 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
