Built by J S White as the CALOUSTE GULBENKIAN; a 37ft Oakley fitted with twin Perkins P4M diesels. A gift from the Gulbenkian Foundation to RNLI in 1961. Served at Weston Super Mare from 1961 to 1970 and then on reserve. The lifeboat took part in a notable rescue in 1984 when on relief duty at Hastings: She was launched in a heavy gale and rendezvoused with a container ship where she took off a sick crew member.
