The Craster station is manned by volunteers from the local area and operates with strong support from the local community.
The station recently accepted a new 'D ' Class boat, named after Joseph Hughes who served as a coxswain for Rhyl's lifeboat crew for many years in the late 19th Century and early 20th Century, as part of a family tradition which he passed on to his six sons.
