THE ELLIOTT GILL was built as a Liverpool Class lifeboat in 1953 by Groves & Gutteridge of Cowes, Isle of Wight. She is of double diagonal mahogany construction. Previously powered by twin engines, at the time of registration the vessel had no engines as she is waiting for restoration.
She operated as the Runswick Lifeboat from 1954 to 1970 and was then transferred to the Reserve Fleet. During her past, she was named GILL and WENDY & BARBARA.
The hull is completely original and sound and her present owner intends to restore her to her original condition. Launch is planned for mid 2014.
