Crosshaven Lifeboat Station (est. 2000) is located in Crosshaven, Co. Cork at 51°54’N, 8°18’W, just near the edge of Cork Harbour. Our nearest stations are Ballycotton to the East and Kinsale to the West. Our station boat is an Atlantic 85 “John and Janet” (B-892).

Crosshaven Lifeboat Station is one of 45 stations in Ireland and 237 in total run by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. The RNLI exists to save lives at sea and is entirely supported by voluntary contributions (Registered Charity Number CHY2678). Each lifeboat is crewed and run by volunteers who are always ready to put to sea 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year if required.
