James Stevens No10 was the St.Ives lifeboat from 1900 to 1933. She was built in 1899 by the Thames Ironworks Company Limited in Blackwall, London. During her 33 years service as the St.Ives lifeboat she saved 227 lives, 2 dogs and saved many vessels from becoming wrecked.
The lifeboat JAMES STEVENS No10 was named after a Birmingham businessman who left the RNLI a legacy of Β£50,000 ( 6.5 million pounds in today’s money ) in 1894. His generous donation built 20 RNLI lifeboats and each boat was named after him.

Coming 2021 Season

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

The future plan for JAMES STEVENS No 10 is to restore, refit & re-engine this historic St.Ives Lifeboat, then get her licensed to carry passengers. She will offer educational trips around St.Ives Bay and any profit raised will go back into other local community projects ie hospital equipment, school equipment, NCI, Surf Lifesaving Clubs, playground equipment etc etc – in fact any worthy projects that need funding. Hopefully we will also be able to offer free educational trips for local schools. With this plan the future of the JAMES STEVENS No 10 will be secure. She will also continue to tell her story about the shipwrecks and rescues performed by this historic lifeboat and her crews. She will also continue her tradition of helping people. During her 33 years service as the St.Ives Lifeboat she saved 227 lives, 2 dogs and helped many others. We would like to keep this tradition going.
