"Full steam ahead!"
— Captain's catch phrase

  • Built: Sometime between 1932 and 1945

Captain is a brave wooden lifeboat. He is part of the Search and Rescue Team.


When Thomas got lost on Misty Island, he helped in the search for him and bought Jobi logs for the Sodor Search and Rescue Centre

When Stephen went missing, Captain went to look for him too.

Once, Emily accidentally lost her special globe of the world to the sea, luckily, Captain was there to help push the globe to Cranky, so he could lift it back onto Emily's flatbed.

In Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure he brought the police to arrest Sailor John and was later seen with some divers recovering the treasure in Arlesburgh Harbour.


Captain is a lifeboat who resides at the Sodor Search and Rescue in his own small shed, ready, willing, and always on hand raring for action in case of an emergency. He can easily be dispatched from his shed by means of a slipway, but often resides in the small dock at the Search and Rescue Centre too. Being a lifeboat, Captain knows that duty may call out at sea to help and rescue anyone at any time. He takes this role seriously and is highly assertive, confident, and is unfazed in the face of daring, dangerous missions, but is not made ostentatious or egotistical by his important responsibilities. He is level-headed, always knows what has to be done, and shows good leadership skills.


Captain is an Ex-Royal National Lifeboat institution Liverpool Class Lifeboat.


Captain's cab is painted yellow, his sides are blue, and his hull is red. He is lined in white. He has a long, thin, yellow mast at the stern of his body.
