RNLB THE ROBERT ON955 is a Watson 47 built in 1960. She is the only RNLI lifeboat to have served in all 4 countries. The Robert started her service at Brought Ferry near Dundee and was there for 18 years until she was converted to be fully self righting. Her next service was in Baltimore SW Ireland where she was the first lifeboat launched in the Fastnet disaster in 1979. She also served at Latham St Annes and Beaumaris before retiring in 1992 as the last Watson lifeboat in service. She is now in private ownership and is in pretty much original condition. The current owners took her back to Baltimore in 2019 for the 40th Anniversary commemoration of the Fastnet disaster. Now based in Dartmouth and kept in commission as part of the UK’s maritime heritage
