Lifeboat launched to aid cruiser suffering with engine failure



Have your say

Eastbourne’s all-weather lifeboat was launched this morning (Tuesday, March 18) to aid a seven-metre cruiser that suffered engine failure just a couple of metres south of the pier.

The cruiser had set out from Eastbourne earlier in the day alongside another vessel with the intention of visiting Newhaven to undergo engine maintenance.

Unfortunately, before it could reach its destination, the cruiser suffered catastrophic mechanical failure.
