Fortress Anchors are widely regarded as the world's best anchor.

All this adds up to the best value in anchoring safety and convenience.

The Fortress is popular for 3 main reasons: they are stronger, faster and lighter than other anchors.
A review by the US Navy states that ‘Fortress anchors had far greater holding power than any other anchor tested.’ What an accolade! Over the years anchor design has been completely revolutionised and designers no longer rely on weight for the anchor’s ability to hold. Fortress is no different – Fortress have designed an anchor that relies on its shape to hold position. The fluke angle is adjustable between 32° & 45° which dramatically increases holding power in problem soft mud bottoms – a patented feature for the Fortress anchor. This is why the Fortress has proved itself time & time again. One such occasion is Yachting Monthly – In a nutshell, their reviewer said ‘It’s holding power was absolutely astonishing.’ Yachting Monthly Anchor Review For further test results see the Fortress Comparison Tests
