Hi Cliff
I believe the RNLI use Oxford Blue, and if you use rattle cans then Ford Galaxy Blue or Ford Balliol Blue have been suggested as being close.
Whatever you use you need to prep the hull well and apply multiple thin coats rubbed down between coats to achieve the finish seen on a lifeboat.
Good luck with the Solent, perhaps you will share some pics of the model?

Live long and prosper
