The 50001 Youth Training Trust a Lowestoft based charity, was created in 2014 as the Thames Class Lifeboat Trust, built upon a core group of dedicated volunteers of all ages and from varying different backgrounds.

Each volunteer has a passion for education and preservation of maritime heritage.

The trust owns and aims to preserve and operate the historic Lowestoft built ex RNLI lifeboat “Rotary Service” as a training vessel.

Working alongside other voluntary organisations or directly with the end user offering the chance for young & disadvantaged individuals to come on board as a volunteer, or just to take short training courses with qualified instructors, empowering them with the qualifications and experience to follow a career in the maritime sector.
