Eastbourne RNLI rescued a power boat on Sunday afternoon after being paged at 4.30pm.
They were requested to launch the All Weather Lifeboat and tasked to assist a 14 metre power boat that had suffered mechanical failure.
The casualty vessel was in a position 12 miles East of Sovereign Harbour.
Once the Lifeboat was on scene a tow line was attached and the casualty vessel towed back into the safety of Sovereign Harbour.
