PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fortress Marine Aluminum Fluke Anchor

Fortress Anchors are often referred to as the "World's Best Anchors" by boaters and marine experts alike. Fortress anchors weigh only half as much as heavier steel anchors and yet outperform them all. Fortress anchors are precision-machined from a high-tensile, corrosion-resistant, aluminum magnesium alloy, and are sharper and able to penetrate faster and deeper into most common sea bottoms than heavier, dull-edged traditional steel anchors which weigh 50% more or even greater.

Key Features:

  • Precision-machined from an aluminum alloy that is as strong as steel, but only half the weight.
  • Tough anodized finish - Handsome and durable appearance - Corrosion resistant
  • Easy to manage weight, rustproof, and sharper than heavy, dull-edged steel anchors
  • Will set faster and penetrate deeper into common sea bottoms for incredible holding power
  • Can be disassembled - Excellent as a spare or storm anchor
  • Lifetime Parts Replacement Warranty with Fortress.
  • Fortress anchors let you choose between two shank / fluke angles to provide outstanding holding power in common sea bottoms – a 32° angle for sand, mud or clay, or a 45° angle for soft mud.

Boat size recommendations are for boats of average windage and proportions in 30 knots of wind, average bottom conditions, and moderate protection from open seas. Remember that the loads in 42 knots of wind are twice as much as in 30 knots. 

Use three-strand nylon rope, 6-12 ft (2-4 m) of chain and a minimum of 5:1 scope. Also, a minimum of 6 ft (2 m) of chain should be used for every 25 ft (8 m) of water depth. For storm conditions use an anchor one or two sizes larger.

 

Why Fortress?

The Fortress Advantage

  • In the US Navy tests, not only did the Fortress anchors out-perform much heavier steel anchors, they were also able to withstand pull loads that averaged over 200x their own weight ... and without incurring serious damage to the anchors

Stronger Holding Power

  • For over two decades, the much lighter Fortress has out-performed substantially heavier steel anchors in holding power tests conducted around the world. From older, well-established anchor brands like the Bruce, CQR, Danforth, or Delta to newer anchor models such as the Manson, Rocna, Spade, and Ultra, the Fortress anchor has consistently demonstrated that its superior design and lightweight alloy can provide outstanding performance at a fraction of the weight.

Faster Setting

  • The easy to handle aluminum alloy Fortress anchor is precision-machined for sharpness and quick penetration into common sea bottoms, which insures faster setting performance when you need it most!

Lighter Design

  • Precisely machined interlocking components made from a high tensile, corrosion-resistant, aluminum-magnesium alloy have no welds to weaken the metal and produces superior holding power while creating a lighter, easy to handle anchor.

Quick Assembly and Easily Disassembled 

  • Lightweight, fast-setting and reliable, Fortress anchors can also be disassembled for easy storage, which makes them the perfect choice for tight quarters where compact storage is a must. More importantly, Fortress anchors can be quickly assembled, which makes them the perfect choice for spare or storm anchors. Precision machined interlocking components made from a high tensile, corrosion-resistant, aluminum-magnesium alloy have no welds to weaken the metal and produces superior holding power while creating a lighter, easy to handle anchor. In the unlikely event that any piece of the anchor becomes damaged, the unique assembly / disassembly feature allows the damaged or missing part of your anchor to be replaced.
