St Agnes is one of the newer lifeboat stations in Cornwall having been established as an inshore lifeboat station (ILB) in April 1968, when a D Class lifeboat was placed on service for the summer months only. In 1970 a new boathouse was built. In 1994 the BBC children’s programme Blue Peter provided the fourth D Class lifeboat for the station from their ‘Pieces of Eight’ appeal.
Due to the increase in incidents around the coast the lifeboat was placed on all-year service in 1996. In 2005 a new D Class lifeboat was funded by the BBC children's programme Blue Peter and was named Blue Peter IV (D-641).
