A rescue boat is a type of watercraft designed and equipped for the purpose of rescuing people or animals who are in distress or in danger in or near the water. Rescue boats are commonly used by first responders, such as coastguards, lifeboat crews from the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution), and fire departments, as well as by private organisations and individuals.

Rescue boats can be motorized or non-motorized, and they can vary in size and shape depending on their intended use. Some rescue boats are inflatable and can be easily transported and stored, while others are larger and designed for more heavy-duty rescue operations.

Most rescue boats are equipped with safety equipment such as life jackets, rescue ropes, first aid kits, and communication devices. Some boats may also have specialised equipment for rescuing people from the water, such as rescue ladders, hoists, or stretchers.

Rescue boats are used in a variety of situations, including swift water rescues, floods, and hurricanes. They are also commonly used in search and rescue operations to locate and retrieve missing people. The RNLI operates a fleet of rescue boats around the coasts of the UK and Ireland, providing life-saving assistance to those in danger on or near the water.
