Voyonic Crewing Limited has agreed to sponsor Guernsey's new inshore lifeboat's fuel for the duration of its two year trial.
The boat, which is designed for rapid response, started service on 1 July.
"As a marine employment company and as an ex-professional seafarer myself, we have a natural affinity with the sea so it is great to be working with a charity that helps to keep people safe at sea," said Chief Executive of Voyonic, Neil Carrington.
The boat is able to access very shallow waters and has already proved useful since its launch.
"We are absolutely delighted that Voyonic has offered to help in such a practical way by sponsoring fuel for our new ILB," added Guernsey Lifeboat Guild Chair, Celia Allen. "The fact that the sponsorship is for two years is very generous and thoughtful.
"The Guernsey Lifeboat Guild is very grateful for this great addition to the fundraising for the work of the Guernsey lifeboats."
