The RNLI has invested more than £50m along the Welsh coastline over the past two years, figures show.
The money has been spent on four state-of-the-art boats and new facilities, such as a new boathouse at Mumbles in Swansea where crews moved in last week.
Work is nearly complete on a new lifeboat station at Porthdinllaen in Gwynedd and work has started at Moelfre on Anglesey.
