Why a Rocna is best: key features
Instant setting A Rocna always attains the correct attitude for penetration, and with its combination of chisel tip, roll-bar, and skids, is rapidly buried on most seabeds – typically within one meter (three feet)
Ultra-high holding power Testing demonstrates that a Rocna possesses stopping power vastly superior to equivalent weight plough or claw types in soft sand or mud, due to the large blade area coupled with the blade's concave shape, which offers the greatest resistance of any form

GUARANTEED FOR LIFE
Each Rocna anchor comes with a Lifetime Warranty against both breakage and bending in addition to manufacturing defects.
Large blade area and chisel blade tip On a boat weight matters, and in a Rocna anchor every gram of metal is put to use. A large concave surface blade area offers superior holding power, and the chisel-like blade tip easily penetrates weed, grass, and kelp
Roll-stable A Rocna is not susceptible to sudden "trip out". Owing to its optimized geometry, it remains embedded, and does not roll out on load-reversal or if dragged under extreme load
Ease of use A Rocna self-launches and locks home on most bow rollers. A tight curve radius between the shank and blade give a positive lock, preventing movement at sea. The slotted shackle attachment point allows single-shackle fixing, and special holes are positioned for a buoyed retrieval line and tandem anchor, if required
Roll-bar A Rocna’s roll-bar ensures that the anchor will turn itself to the correct attitude for setting, every time. The skid-rails then direct the blade into the seabed. This also eliminates the need for dedicated tip-weight (an inefficiency common in other designs)
Versatility There is a Rocna to suit your boat, whether she's a small runabout or a vessel displacing 50 tons. Larger sizes can be custom designed for your vessel (please enquire)
Appeal A Rocna has a distinctive and smart look that complements and enhances any craft
Rugged strength The heavy-duty construction of a Rocna is attained through clever design and the use of high tensile steel. A Rocna is rock solid with no moving parts, eliminating complex adjustment systems and potentially dangerous failure points. As with other fixed shank anchors if using a swivel anchor connector, make sure it is the doulbe swivel type to avoid shear stress on the swivel pin.
The Fisherman Variant.
Designed as a specialist anchor for fishermen and divers who run an increased risk of getting their anchor stuck on an undersea obstacle, the Rocna Fisherman features a shackle rail™ for easier recovery of a fouled anchor.
CHOOSE THE ROCNA FISHERMAN:
For smaller boats that re-anchor frequently.
For easier anchor retrieval in difficult conditions.
For day trips rather than extended cruising.
Sizes: 4 kg (9 lb) & 6 kg (13 lb) only
Durable A hot dip galvanized finish covers the entire surface of every Rocna with protective zinc, including the interior of the hollow rollbar
To choose the correctly sized Rocna, match your vessel’s length with the most appropriate displacement range, also bearing in mind conditions of intended use (if in doubt, give preference to the larger anchor model).
1 t = 1,000 kg | * Weights and areas may vary slightly For multi-hulls: use the chart as instructed, then select the model one size larger
Rocna sizing recommendations are intended to provide an anchor adequate for use in most all conditions.

We cannot predict the cost to ship hazardous materials outside of UK. If your purchase includes a gas inflating lifejacket we can send it overseas only by first removing the gas bottle. You will have to find a local source to replace this bottle for the lifejacket to function. We cannot send re-arm kits overseas.
We cannot send other hazardous goods including liferafts, paint and antifouling overseas without first getting a special delivery quotation. After all these hurdles we put up, please do not be alarmed - if you need a liferaft delivered to the Baltic, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, simply contact us for a quote. You can be confident our delivered price will still be better than local sourcing.
