The Vulcan is carefully designed to offer the greatest possible compatibility across a wider range of vessel bow configurations, particularly powerboats with a bow pulpit. It brings the security and reliability of the Rocna anchor, highly successful and popular with offshore cruisers and adventurers, to a wider range of mariners who desire improved anchoring performance.
AN INHERITANCE OF GENUINE PERFORMANCE
The original Rocna has ”set the bar” for the highest performance and consistency of behaviour when put to the test both by a worldwide array of users and in numerous independent tests. This performance is the result of careful design and engineering by Peter, who has again put to work all of his knowledge and experience to develop a variation on the theme of the ultimate anchor. The new Vulcan capitalizes on already finely tuned design elements, infusing many of its elder sibling’s proven performance advantages for an extremely quick and reliable set across a range of seabeds combined with rock solid holding power.
NEW SOLUTIONS FOR OLD CHALLENGES
Breaking from the Rocna design, the Vulcan features a unique combination of shank and fluke geometry – including an innovative roll-palm™ (A) at the rear of the fluke – which self-rights the anchor on the seabed without the use of a roll-bar. This is assisted by the V-bulb™ (B) which extends fluke ballast downward to gain maximum leverage and efficiency. This development permits a larger fluke surface area than competing designs which rely on simple dead weight, while the concave fluke (C) is similar in design to the Rocna, directly equating to more holding power and security.
Vulcan anchor features
FIT FOR ALL VESSELS – AND THEIR OPERATORS
The omission of a roll-bar along with a carefully designed shank profile (D) ensures a snug fit on the bows of a widely expanded range of vessels. Platforms, bowsprits, prods, stays, and other protrusions are easily cleared with no hassle or inconvenience.
SMOOTH BOW INTERACTION & COMPATIBILITY
The Vulcan’s shank shape (D) encourages self-launching and self-stowing upon retrieval on the majority of bow rollers, with a liquid smooth action, ensuring ease of use for all operators.STRENGTH FROM SOPHISTICATED DESIGN
In addition to the use of high tensile steel, shank strength is optimized by a unique I+V profile™ shank design (E), granting improved resistance to bending courtesy of a computer optimized I-beam geometry. This visually elegant innovation also improves setting performance, with the lower V edge (F) cutting into the seabed and minimizing resistance to a deep and secure burial.
GUARANTEED FOR LIFE
Like the Rocna, each Vulcan anchor comes with a Lifetime Warranty against both breakage and bending in addition to manufacturing defects.As with other fixed shank anchors if using a swivel anchor connector, make sure it is the double swivel type to avoid shear stress on the swivel pin.
To choose the correctly sized Vulcan, 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).
* Weights and areas may vary slightly For multi-hulls: use the chart as instructed, then select the model one size larger
Vulcan sizing recommendations are intended to provide an anchor adequate for use in most all conditions.

- Went from 11.4kg CQR to 9kg Vulcan
I used the Vulcan anchor today off Weymouth beach. It was only to try it out in lightish winds but it did what they claim. Once dropped, I couldn't drag it back. The chain was fairly easy to haul up until it was vertical then it came to a halt. After a few seconds, the anchor slowly released itself from the sand and emerged out of the water with half of Weymouth beach on it. It must have been pretty well buried. Looking very good so far. It's even easier to stow than the 25lb CQR and fits my bow roller.
