Trips on Lucy Lavers

Following her restoration and return from the 75th anniversary of Dunkirk in 2015, Lucy Lavers now lives in the working fishing port of Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk,

where she served twice as the town's relief lifeboat. She gives trips and charters afloat from April to October (weather permitting) to the public, schools and other groups, acting as a floating ambassador to help people understand and experience our maritime heritage.  

Some Christmas holiday trips may be available too, weather permitting. 

On land her story is told through films, photographs and displays at Rescue Wooden Boats Maritime Heritage Centre in Stiffkey, Norfolk, and here on the website.
