I think you will find that this lifeboat was actually from the 1953 movie Titanic.

Here is a brief description of the adventures of Lifeboat No. 6 from the 1953 Fox movie Titanic. The lifeboat sold in the 1971 Fox auction and was displayed at Movieworld in Buena Park, CA for many years. It was sold to a collector named Harry Hand, who exhibited it in Atlantic City. The whereabouts of the lifeboat after the Atlantic City exhibit becomes uncertain, but Harry Hand also purchased some of the miniature lifeboats from Titanic. I was told they were sold off to the parent company of Hard Rock Cafe, but could never find out where they are today. Robert H. Gibbons
