York Rescue Boat is an independent lifeboat and search and rescue team based in York, North Yorkshire.

Our team of volunteers work to save lives and keep people safe on the Rivers Ouse and Foss, supporting the emergency services and, uniquely, patrolling the rivers at high-risk times.

All money donated to York Rescue Boat goes straight back into equipping our team, continuing our work and funding our youth education program.
