  • Old4New lifejacket upgrade program
  • April 22, 2016

Boaters on the NSW South Coast are running out of time to take advantage of the Old4New lifejacket upgrade program before it ends for the season.

Old, bulky lifejackets in any condition can be traded-in for a discount on a brand new one at the roving Old4New lifejacket van.

Lifejackets are a vital piece of safety equipment for the estimated two million people who go boating in NSW each year.

The Old4New lifejacket van will stop at 10 locations between St Georges Basin and Narrawallee until Sunday, May 1.

Boaters can upgrade their lifejackets and purchases can be made without a trade-in.

Improved technology and design has led to a range of lifejacket styles that look good, are easy to wear and don’t get in the way of your favourite activity on the water.

Since Old4New was launched in 2013, the van has travelled more than 72,000km statewide, visited more than 370 coastal and inland sites and assisted people in 15,000 lifejacket upgrades.
