RNLI 39ft Medina Class Lifeboat No. 1072  “Countess Mountbatten of Burma”

built by Souter Marine, Cowes, in 1981

Prototype lifeboat designed on the Atlantic 21 concept. She was fitted with twin 330hp Caterpiller engines powering two waterjet drives.

In 1985 she was stationed briefly at Redcar for sea trials and evaluation. Three of these prototypes were built, none of which entered permanent service with the RNLI. They were eventually sold into alternative service.
