Naming ceremony held for fifth Fred. Olsen-funded RNLI lifeboat

A naming ceremony was held on Tuesday, January 22, for the fifth Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) vessel to be funded by donations from guests of the Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines fleet.

The lifeboat, an 8.44-metre rigid inflatable boat (RIB) built at the RNLI’s inshore lifeboat production facility on the Isle of Wight, has been named Pride of Fred. Olsen.

Fred. Olsen guests were able to raise £170,000 (US$221,000) to fund the new lifeboat.
