The Severn class lifeboat was introduced into RNLI service in 1995 and was the first RNLI all-weather lifeboat to be built from advanced composite materials. 25 years later the RNLI has an opportunity to consider a life extension of the boats to make them fit for the next 25 challenging years of search and rescue service.
