Well done to Graham and the crew....... $good$ $good$      $walesflag$      See you tomorrow 

After being met and escorted part way by the Beaumaris lifeboat, then handed off to Conwy inshore lifeboat, for the final leg of the 400 mile trip,  RNLI 13-18  has now docked safely at Conwy marina.

saw it arrive with its escort, pity about the weather felt sorry for those who stood waiting for it in all that rain, at least it cleared up a bit for the display.

Llandudno’s new £2.2M RNLI Shannon-class lifeboat ‘William F Yates’ arrived in Llandudno Bay at noon after her voyage from RNLI Headquarters in Poole.

Good video of the boat in action ......

It was mentioned at the arrival ceremony, that 13 18 on  passage to Conwy on Saturday, had assisted the Beaumaris
lifeboat in a rescue.

RNLI details.
The 75ft - 35,000kg Sunseeker Predator hard aground at moelfre’s former Lifeboat Station slipway known locally as Porth Neigwl

Beaumaris lifeboat arrived on scene off Llanddona and with 2 pumps aboard the water level dropped. Llandudno’s new Shannon Class lifeboat, on passage to Conwy, also assisted and provided a 3rd pump. They stood by while Beaumaris Lifeboat responded to another, separate incident.

Once in Beaumaris the vessel was placed alongside the pier for salvage experts to assess, but once forward motion stopped the vessel began to sink once again so all lines were released and the vessel was beached safely.

This was a fantastic multi agency rescue involving RNLI crews from Moelfre, Beaumaris and Llandudno as well as local Coastguard teams from Moelfre and Penmon, who also provided vital assistance ashore. All occupants of the vessel were rescued safe and well, and the vessel undoubtedly saved preventing any environmental risk or navigational risk to other vessels

Good video of the boat in action ......

Certainly looks good.  I read it's a jet boat and highly manoeuvrable.

It certainly is the most agile boat I have seen, as I said above they made it dance, but the most impressive maneuver for me, traveling at speed to full stop, remarkable.

Launching or landing?  Your photos seem to show the latter?    Having read, I'm under the impression this Shannon class should make both tasks easier???

Not seen how they get my local (I read Tamar) one back up btw. It goes down via a slipway from the pier but must need winching back.

ME did you see another Lifeboat there?, according to the marine traffic site, the Fleetwood lifeboat No 13 12 is on station, perhaps on call while the crew are training on the new boat.
