Mission Statement and History
To provide the strongest holding anchor to give working and pleasure boaters peace of mind.
In 1993, Andy Peabody designed the original MAX anchor in Natchez, Mississippi. This early version demonstrated superior holding in various seabeds. The holding was so effective that the MAX anchor actually bent under severe strain – yet it continued to hold. In 1995, Andy made a slight design modification and began using a higher strength steel. This improved design became the Super MAX anchor. Andy continued to manufacture the Super MAX anchor until 2014.
In 2015, we purchased the Super MAX anchor business, including its patented, unique design, its high-quality steel and coating materials, and the equipment to make the anchor. We created MAX Marine Products, LLC to manufacture and sell the Super MAX anchor, and founded our business in the heart of the Chesapeake Bay in Reedville, Virginia. Today, we are working hard to re-establish the production of the Super MAX, the strongest holding anchor in the world.
