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,

member of the Lifeboat crew. The detailed reproductions
are now available in both a Special Limited
Edition of 195 copies, along with a Limited
