The rocna anchor was designed by new zealand sailor peter smith, who has been designing, building, and sailing boats since the early 1960's. Over 100,000 nautical miles of cruising, peter experienced the same anchoring problems that are still prevalent today - needing to carry a variety of anchors to suit various seabeds, yet still the anchors dragged and boaters felt insecure. An independently tested new generation design: Peter's solution consistently returns top results in objective and independent testing. Since its launch in 2004, the rocna has led worldwide anchor tests as published in the likes of sail, yachting monthly, practical boat owner, voile, and others. Because of the rocna's reliable and convincing performance against its competition, rocna is trusted to be rock solid in the real world. For all who need reliability from performance: Rocna anchors are performing in some of the world's toughest locales, including patagonia, antarctica, alaska, greenland, scotland - as well as enduring temperamental tropical weather. Precision setting: The roll-bar ensures that the anchor always arrives at the ideal angle for penetration, and the setting skids guide the fluke tip which acts as a sharp chisel cutting into the seabed. With a third of the anchor's weight on its fluke tip, an instant reliable set is ensured with every use. Rock solid holding power: Of all anchor types, a concave fluke gives the greatest resistance, and through clever design rocna provides the largest fluke area possible. In very soft seabeds, this provides the holding power to secure your boat. On hard or weedy sea floors, rocna's chisel tip ensures that it cuts through and bites deep. Maximum versatility. Resistant to wind and tide shifts. Highest quality build and finish. High tensile steel shank. Self-deploying and self-recovering. Competitively priced with wide product range. Rocna anchors are available in different sizes from 4 kg (9 lb) - 275 kg (606 lb).
