Built in 1939 by Groves & Guttridge as a Watson Class Lifeboat, PENROS was the first RNLI lifeboat to be converted from petrol to diesel in 1963, when she was fitted with a Ford Parsons Porbeagle engine, 48 hp. She then toured the coast of Britain stopping at many lifeboat stations to show the conversion.
