A new lifeboat will be operating on the north Norfolk coast while Cromer's Tamar class Lester undergoes routine repairs.
The crew at Cromer brought back the relief lifeboat number 16-01, which means it was the first in the Tamar class.
It is named RNLB Peter and Lesley-Jane Nicholson and can now be seen in Cromer's home station boathouse at the end of the pier.
Lester, which is now 11-years-old, is undergoing its maintenance at Poole after it leaves Lowestoft.
Cromer RNLI operations manager Richard Leeds said he would let everyone know when it was due back.
