The Arun is the first lifeboat ever to win a Design Council Award which was presented to the RNLI by His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh in 1982. The watertight superstructure provides buoyancy to initiate self righting if the boat should capsize. The hull is based on a design by A McLachlan of Watsons of Glasgow and the fit out and superstructure were designed by the RNLI's own Technical Department. The hull is divided into 26 watertight compartments. Void spaces are filled with buoyant materials, giving reserve buoyancy if the boat is holed.
There are two survivor's cabins below deck containing rescue equipment including first aid gear, stretchers, emergency rations and blankets. The coxswain can steer from inside the wheel house or from a flying bridge on top of the superstructure.
A comprehensive range of communications and navigation equipment includes radar, GPS satellite navigator, VHF and MF radios, VHF and MF automatic direction finders and echo sounders. The radar scanner has been made watertight so that it will continue to work after the lifeboat has self righted.
