Sharpness opened its new slipway in October 2008, which was made possible by a £85,000 donation from the Assistant Grand Master of Mark Master Masons. This donation was in recognition of the efforts of SARA in the July 2007 floods in Gloucestershire.

The new facility includes a state of the art boathouse and launch slipway which houses the front line lifeboat and permits a very fast launch by tractor and launch cradle directly from the building. It also contains an operations room and training facility.

Although in use housing the lifeboat, final works, in particular the rendering of the outside of the building, needed to be completed. Dragon Alpha Cement at Sharpness Docks, have very kindly stepped in and donated the cement required to render the building. This generous gesture by Dragon Alpha Cement enables the work to go ahead without further delay, final works are currently underway to complete the project.
