More Information

Ankerplex® Aluminium Stowable Anchor

The Ankerplex Anchor is manufactured from three flat sections without welding, bending or fixing screws.

The Ankerplex Anchor parts are precision cut from marine grade aluminium to deliver a clean finish.

The Aluminium models are manufactured using Marine Grade Aluminium AL5083 and AL5754, providing mechanical resistance, lightness, and durability.

The Ankerplex concept is designed to connect easily using one shackle to secure the parts in position, forming a secure 3D unit comparable to other modern anchors.

The Ankerplex design is totally effective in terms of positioning, speed of penetration into the seabed, holding power, and resetting in changes of trajectory and wind and tide direction.

Ankerplex aluminium anchors are suitable as a kedge or spare anchor for occasional use on small craft such as kayaks, dinghies, boats and yachts up to 15 metres according to weather conditions.

The lightweight attributes of the aluminium make Ankerplex an attractive addition to your inventory wherever weight saving is important.

The huge advantage Ankerplex has over other anchors is the ease of assembly for deployment and subsequent dismantling for compact storage onboard.

The flat cut-out parts ensure easy portage and stowage, and there is an optional protective bag, which prevents it from banging and rattling while in storage. 

There are two holes in the shank used for the chain connection to optimise the angle of penetration of the Ankerplex® anchor into the seabed.

The lower hole is the most commonly used method, but when it is necessary to increase the angle of penetration of the fluke slightly, change the shackle position to the upper hole, which will increase it by +4º. The added degrees make it more suitable for soft sand or muddy sea bottoms.
