The St Helier RNLI inshore lifeboat will return to service today following a "breakdown in relations" between the crew and the charity.
It will be crewed by existing RNLI volunteers from the island, and Jersey Fire and Rescue personnel.
The RNLI closed the St Helier station and removed the All Weather lifeboat last month, after the crew requested to run an independent lifeboat service on their own.
The David Page, based at St Helier, is a B class lifeboat which is the RNLI’s fastest coastal lifeboat with a top speed of 35 knots.
It is crewed by three or four volunteers and is ideal for rescues close to shore or cliffs, as well as being able to handle fairly challenging open sea conditions.
It can operate in a force seven in daylight, in force six at night and can rescue up to 20 people at a time.
