'The Inchcape' - the Arbroath Lifeboat
Signed limited edition prints by Steven Patrick Sim

Raising money for the Angus Crew Training Fund!

The east coast fishing town of Arbroath has had a lifeboat for over 200 years, since 1803. The lifeboat station there was one of the first established in Scotland.

The RNLI took over responsibility for the service in 1865.

The present Arbroath lifeboat, 'Inchcape', takes her name from the infamous Inchcape reef on which the Bellrock lighthouse stands, where many vessels and lives have met their untimely end. A Mersey class boat, the 35th of 37 built, she has been in service since August 1993 and has a range of 140 nautical miles with a top speed of 17 knots provided by two 285 horse power turbo-diesels. She weighs 16 tons and has a crew of 6.

Currently there are 29 volunteers who serve on the 'Inchcape'.


The Inchcape is now featured in two newly released limited edition prints. The original painting, created by Arbroath artist Steven Patrick Sim, was a piece commissioned by a current serving member of the Lifeboat crew. The detailed reproductions are now available in both a Special Limited Edition of 195 copies, along with a Limited Edition of 395 copies.
