Life Jacket Vouchers

1 January 2021 is the date that all life jackets in use in Tasmania will need to adhere to the new standard AS 4758.

To make the transition easier for the public, MAST will provide $20.00 vouchers for all old jackets (PFD 1, 2 and 3).

How will the voucher system work? Simply follow these steps:

  1. Visit a MAST BoatSafeĀ  Partner who hold stocks of the vouchers.
  2. Take your old PFD1, 2 or 3 along with you when purchasing a new Standard jacket
  3. Receive a voucher issued by MAST.

We will issue up to four vouchers per person, but you will need a jacket for each voucher. Only one voucher can be used per new jacket. For a family of five, it signifies a $100 discount on five jackets. Vouchers are not redeemable for cash and expire on 31 December 2020 or until the funding for the voucher program expires).
