Lifejacket upgrade voucher program

New lifejacket laws came into effect in South Australia on December 1st 2017 to require lifejacket wearing on boats in certain circumstances. Click on this link to view lifejacket requirements, or call 1300 183 046 to obtain a print copy.

The OLD4NEW lifejacket upgrade voucher exchange program helps boaters to upgrade their old lifejackets for new, safer types which are comfortable and functional.

Marine Safety Officers will be visiting metropolitan and regional locations from January to March 2019 and will accept old, damaged, non-compliant or unsuitable lifejackets from the public in exchange for a $20 OLD4NEW voucher. Vouchers can be redeemed at any of the participating stores below when purchasing a new lifejacket as long as it meets the Australian Standard AS 4758.

Find more information and when Marine Safety Officers will be near you.

Find full terms and conditions at the bottom of this page.

OLD4NEW lifejacket upgrade vouchers can be redeemed upon the purchase of a new lifejacket, at any of these retail partner stores. You will recognise the OLD4NEW posters in their stores.
