Like many lifeboats Abdy Beauclerk was paid for by a private legacy. Built in 1931 by J. Samuel White at Cowes, Isle of Wight and named by Prince George (later King George VI), the following May Abdy Beauclerk was stationed at Aldeburgh on the East Coast of England.

Abdy Beauclerk was the first lifeboat to leave its station and arrived at Dover where Able Seaman Charles Strudwick was put in command as coxswain. He had an ordinary seaman and a stoker to look after the two 35hp engines.
