Irish Lifeboats

B Class (Atlantic 75) Lifeboats

The Atlantic 75 is part of the B-class of lifeboats that served the shores of the United Kingdom and Ireland as part of the RNLI inshore fleet.


The Atlantic 75 is the second generation Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) in the B-class series, developed from the Atlantic 21. These boats gradually replaced the Atlantic 21 fleet, but are now in the process of being replaced by the third generation Atlantic 85 lifeboat.

One of the main improvements made to the Atlantic 75 is the addition of a ballast tank at the front of the boat which enables the boat to launch into larger surf than the Atlantic 21. The ballast when full, either of sea water or water from a hose, weighs the same as three fully-grown men.


In the event of a capsize, a crew member activates a gas bottle to inflate the self-righting bag and the lifeboat turns upright in a few seconds.
