There is a beautiful new boat in St Ives Harbour that everyone is talking about. It is the wonderful James Stevens No.10 lifeboat, which has such a story to tell!
Nearly 3 years ago Robin Langford purchased the old St. Ives Lifeboat JAMES STEVENS No.10 and set about restoring this historic Lifeboat to her former glory.
After being neglected for many years this old Lifeboat was at risk of being cut up and burnt, so he decided to rescue and restore this important part of St. Ives history.
This Lifeboat was built in 1899 and served as the St. Ives Lifeboat from 1900 to 1933.
This mission is now complete and the newly restored JAMES STEVENS No.10 sailed back into St. Ives harbour at the end of summer 2021.
Come and join them for a truly unique historic lifeboat trip around St.Ives Bay. The old St.Ives Lifeboat JAMES STEVENS No.10 will take you on a gentle and serene boat trip around the Bay.
