St.Agnes Station was formed in 1968 and until 2015 the lifeboat was provided by the viewers of the BBC Children’s television programme Blue Peter, and was always named Blue Peter IV. The current lifeboat was provided by the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club and is called XKalibur. The lifeboat crews have been honoured over the 50 years' service of the station and have received seven awards for gallantry.

Okay, so I got a little bit of relevant data from Dudek. On the chance it'll help someone else in similar situation, they say: "For Powerseat Comfort S / M, the container capacity is: min 4300 cm3, max > 5400 cm3, and for L / XL it is min 4600 cm3, max 5800 cm3."
