One of the first anchors specifically engineered to hold due to its design, rather than its weight, Danforth's® reputation for high holding power in a lightweight design is well deserved.
Originally designed to pull grounded landing craft off beaches in WWII, this is Danforth's most popular anchor. It remains one of the most effective anchors for anchoring in favorable bottoms such as clay, sand or mud, due to its large fluke area. Although the design appears relatively simple and has now been copied by a variety of manufacturers, care should be taken in that "look-alikes" do not necessarily hold similarly.
• Low profile shape makes it easy to stow
• Angled plates at the crown maintain the fluke's downward angle into the seabed
• Long stock at the crown keeps anchor flat, so both flukes dig in
• Use a larger size as a storm anchor
• Flukes are steel and shank is high strength steel
• Hot dipped galvanized coating for long lasting protection
