The Lilla Marras served as lifeboat from 1955 to 1979 at several places on the British coast. During that period she performed 105 rescue operations and saved 45 lives. A few years ago, she was brought over to the Netherlands by a lifeboat enthusiast. It has been an asset to the Harlingen harbour ever since. Although the boat makes heavy demands in terms of maintenance and seamanship, it was well worth the effort.
