Anchoring System Solutions

The information in our Knowledge Centre offers guidance on assembling a complete anchoring system, not just based on your yacht specification, but also your cruising ambitions, including your anticipated and worst-case scenario anchoring conditions.

Start by assessing your current Anchoring System

An appraisal of your current set-up is an excellent way to start your upgrade plan.

Team Jimmy Green recommend this article because it prompts all the right questions:

Jimmy Green Anchoring Assessment

What needs upgrading and should it be included in my Anchoring Package ?

An Anchoring system comprises every individual part of the anchor rode from the windlass to the bitter end including the components to safely set, snub, retrieve and stow the anchor.

The anchor, chain, warp and all the connecting swivels, shackles and splicing form the basics of the system.

Windlasses, chain stoppers, chain grips and grabbers, snubbing strops or snubbing bridles can then be specified to control the associated loads.

Any Anchor System is only as strong as the weakest link, so all the constituent parts need to be comparable in strength.
The increased holding power of modern anchors also means that all the joining elements are subjected to higher loads than ever before.

Jimmy Green Marine recommend that you consider only chain, warp and connectors with genuine provenance and a manufacturer published load rating.
We have a wide array of options for you to assess before making your final decision.

You may be considering the purchase of a completely new anchoring set-up or just a part of it - any substantial multiple-product combination of anchoring products may be considered to be a package.

However, although there may sometimes be a small extra discount applicable to a package, there are currently no reductions available.
We can look at the website generated freight charge and advise whether this can be reduced, please enquire.

Arranging Delivery

An anchoring package will almost certainly be heavy, and our freight charges are calculated to reflect the carrier cost.

We don't charge for packing, but please bear in mind that preparing a windlass, an anchor and a long length of chain spliced to rope will take time and care to splice and prepare for despatch to ensure that it arrives safely at your chosen delivery destination.

You will need to consider where it will be most convenient to accept delivery, bearing in mind that it will almost certainly be very heavy and arrive on a pallet which will need unpacking on the lorry if it doesn’t have a tail lift.
