'Respond and assist' boat rescue service

Boat rescue service Falmouth

Our Respond and Assist service is already proving popular with boat owners.

The service helps rescue boats when crew members are safe and there is no emergency.

Operating from dawn until dusk, 7 days a week, we aim to get members of our team to the vessel within an hour of the initial call to 01326 374309.

Following inspection, we then offer advice on the next steps to remedy the problem.

The rescue service is very popular, with the majority of call outs being prompted by mechanical issues.

The call outs are free to Falmouth Haven clients and £50 + VAT to others.

If we are tasked with further work, the cost is £42 + VAT per hour.

The RNLI has said that our Respond and Assist service of of "great help".

Coxswain John Blakeston from the RNLI’s  Falmouth Lifeboat Station said: "We absolutely welcome the service.

"As a lifeboat station, we're here to save lives but we often get involved in jobs where no lives are at risk.

"This new service is of great help to us, it's all good news." 

In the event that you need assistance, call us on 01326 374309.
