… for the Max from your sailing!


All these discounts have come about due to the personal initiative of various members & committee members, to the mutual benefit of members and suppliers over quite a long time period.  So as we have no easy way of checking whether these companies are still offering discounts, do please tactfully enquire: if you don’t ask, you don’t get! 
If you could please let us know when you’ve managed or not to get a discount through these pages, we will update our information.  And If you’ve already got a good relationship with any supplier who is prepared to give a discount, then tell them a listing here would help them as well as fellow members!  Please let us know!

From 2018 but the code still appears to work

The Natural Mat Company make specialist mattresses and bedding for yachts and are offering M-O-A members a special discount.

We have fitted one to Vouvray to replace the original foam that was becoming uncomfortable and has always been difficult to ventilate.  Our new mattress uses natural latex and coir to provide extra comfort with self-ventilation.  It fits beautifully, it is very comfortable, and allows good access to the locker below.

The Natural Mat Company already have a template for the Maxi 1100 forepeak (Ours was WITHOUT the removable in-fill), and new templates are easy to arrange.  A discount of 7.5% is offered to M-O-A members by contacting

Mark @ naturalmat . com

and quoting “Maxi Owners Association”.

The Natural Mat Company is at 99 Talbot Road, London W11 2AT, tel 0207 985 0474 although their factory is at Topsham, near Exmouth, so we were able to save delivery charges as well by picking it up by boat at Exmouth Marina!
