Fortress Aluminum Anchor

Legendary Holding Power - Stronger, Lighter and It Disassembles for Storage!

In test after test, the Fortress Anchor consistently beats the competition for holding power - often by a large margin, and at a fraction of the weight!
 
The advent of the fortress anchor was a big step forward in anchor design. For the first time, sailors had available a highly engineered, very high holding power anchor, that could be disassembled and stowed for convenient storage, if desired.
 
 
Less than half the weight of steel anchors with comparable holding power
 
Immensely strong - precision machined from hardened high-tensile, corrosion resistant, aluminum magnesium alloy; tough anodized finish
 
Milled edges are sharper than dull galvanized steel and penetrate faster and deeper
 
Easier and safer to handle
 
Easily disassembled for compact stowage as a spare or storm anchor; fits in your bilge - no more excuses for not carrying an adequate "Storm Anchor"
 
Special "Mud Palms" can be bolted onto the crown to increase the fluke angle from the standard 32 to 45 for dramatically improved holding in difficult, soft mud bottoms
 
Will never rust
 
Independently tested - approved by American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and used by the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard
 
Life-time warranty - free replacement of any damaged part - forever
 
Note: the table below is based on the manufacturer's recommendations for hard sand bottoms, and is meant as a guide only. If you are in doubt about the appropriate choice of anchor for your boat, please call us for advice.
