The X-class lifeboat is used as a small tender carried on board the All-Weather Lifeboats operated by the RNLI. It is normally found carried on board Tyne-class lifeboats, and is a station option on Mersey and Shannon lifeboats.
It can carry up to two crew, and is primarily used for assisting in cliff incidents where the casualty is near the water and the All-Weather Lifeboat cannot get close to the base of the cliffs due to rocks.
Other small boats operated by the RNLI include the Arancia-class beach rescue boats, Y-class and XP-class lifeboats.
