Torbay has been served by Lifeboats since 1866 and Brixham has provided the base for a lifeboat since then. The Station was granted the Freedom of the Borough of Torbay in 1988. For a period just under 50 years Torquay had a lifeboat station, Dartmouth also had lifeboats for just under 20 years from 1878. A new Dart Lifeboat Station was established in November 2007. Our Station is among the busier lifeboat stations in the Country and can anticipate around 100 launches in any one year. Brixham is a busy fishing port, there are five large marinas within our operational area together with leisure and yacht clubs, water skiing, para gliding, diving, cliffs (climbing, walks and falls!) - in fact any water activity you can think of probably occurs in our area.
