The charity is investing £10.8 million in four new Tamar class lifeboats for Porthdinllaen, Moelfre, St Davids and The Mumbles.

Porthdinllean has already received its new boat and the remaining three stations have received confirmation that their boats will also be updated.

£31.7 million will be spent on building new boathouses that are big enough to house the new lifeboats.

The next lifeboat to arrive will be Moelfre’s, which will be kept on a mooring whilst work to construct its new home begins.
