Max Marine Products LLC acquired SuperMax Anchors from owner and inventor Andy Peabody.

Virginia-based Max Marine Products, headed by owner and CEO Steve Bedford, said it spans three generations and has more than 20 years of combined experience in marine industry manufacturing, maintenance and repairs.

“Andy Peabody first started manufacturing the SuperMax anchor in 1995. His unique, patented design has stood the test of time, and discerning boatbuilders and boat owners recognize the SuperMax as the strongest-holding anchor available,” Bedford said in a statement.

SuperMax anchors are manufactured in the United States from high-tensile strength American tool-grade steel, which the company said is harder than any steel used in competitive anchors.

The SuperMax is available in rigid and shank models in a variety of sizes for boats as large as 100,000 pounds.
