New lifeboat for the Western Isles

THE Western Isles is to be given a new lifeboat. Leverburgh RNLI’s new Shannon-class vessel – named the Stella and Humfrey Berkeley – was launched into the water for the first time at the RNLI’s lifeboat centre in Poole this week.

The RNLB Stella and Humfrey Berkeley is the 13th Shannon to roll off the RNLI’s production line. Each costs £2.2 million to build and is capable of reaching speeds up to 25 knots.
