'The Elizabeth of Glamis'
the Broughty Ferry Lifeboat

Print editions by Steven Patrick Sim

Helping support the Broughty Ferry Crew Fund!

Celebrating more than 170 years as a lifeboat station, Broughty Ferry was the first inshore station in Scotland.

The present serving lifeboat, the 'Elizabeth of Glamis', is a Trent class lifeboat which is designed to lie afloat, either at deep-water moorings or at a berth. The propellers are protected so the lifeboat can take ground without damage.

This 14m long lifeboat, funded by the Broughty Ferry Lifeboat Appeal and various legacies and gifts, has been in service since March 2001. The boat is named after HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, who had been Patron of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution since 1937.

She has a range of 250 nautical miles, and a top speed of 25 knots. She weighs 27.5 tons and has a crew of 6.


The Elizabeth of Glamis is now featured in three newly released print editions.

The original painting, created by Arbroath artist Steven Patrick Sim, was commissioned privately by members of the Broughty Ferry Lifeboat association. The detailed reproductions are available in small and medium open prints, as well as a larger, signed and embossed, limited edition print of 195 copies.

The release of these three fine art giclée editions acknowledges and celebrates the dedication and commitment of all the volunteers who service the 'Elizabeth of Glamis'.

Since the station opened in 1830, Broughty Ferry's Lifeboat volunteers have saved more than 650 lives!

20% of proceeds from all sales of the editions will be donated to the Broughty Ferry Crew Fund.
