Unique opportunity to own and operate a piece of RNLI history. "Amanda Jane" is a superb example of the Atlantic 75, a B-Class inshore lifeboat introduced in 1993 to replace the first inshore model, the Atlantic 21. Built at the RNLI facility in Cowes, Isle of Wight she served her community on the Anglesey coast between 1997 and 2014. She was involved in many a daring rescue including the rescue of a crew of a motor boat in difficulty in force 8, increasing force 9 conditions. That rescue was to earn the helmsman, the Thanks of the Institution on Vellum. The "Amanda Jane" has been a much loved boat and will be the pride and joy of the New Owner
Over the last few years, she has been owned and operated by an avid RNLI enthusiast and used as a RYA training boat at a sea school on the Thames. She has wanted for nothing in the maintenance front and has been where possible kept to her original specifications. The engines were replaced in 2006/7 with reliable and robust Yamaha 90hp, 2-strokes which undergo an annual service, She is currently ashore on her 2017 Indispension Big Dipper twin axled, fully braked road trailer.
