Welcome to the website of the Loughor Inshore Lifeboat.

The Crew of the Loughor Inshore Lifeboat are on-call 24 hours a day to help preserve life in and around the Loughor Estuary.

The Lifeboat is one of around 60 independent Lifeboats set up around the country, who are not part of the RNLI and receive no funding from them, although we do work together on

exercises and call-outs.

On the sub menus you will find all the information about the station, including photos of the crew and the Lifeboat currently on station, as well as a history of the station and also of the

call-outs that we have attended.

The next call-out could come at any time, day or night, and the crew will always attend, whether they are at home or in

work. Our crew come from all walks of life, we have students, a mechanic, a postman, a computer consultant

and also a finance manager on the crew. We currently have over 20 crew members who are trained to the highest possible

standard, so that when the call comes in, they will respond in the best possible way.


Coxswain stands down after 37 years in the Service

Colin Mark Davies' association with the lifeboat began when he was 11 years old.  He would help his father Malcolm and uncle Vincent, who was Coxswain at the time, with maintenance and general duties around the station.  He soon became a full crew member, carrying in the family tradition and was taught boat handling and acquired great local knowledge of the estuary which proved invaluable in his time with the lifeboat.
Colin responded to many callous in his time with the lifeboat which have amounted to nearly a third since its inception in 1969.  
In 2011 Colin was promoted to the role of Coxswain, a role which he was proud to take on and indeed a role to which he brought a wealth of experience.
Crew members past and present who have had the pleasure of serving alongside Colin wish him and his family all best wishes for the future.
