Spade Anchors are hassle-free boat anchors that require no special techniques or mooring lines: simply sit back and let their self-launching design go to work. Their concave-shaped design digs deep into the seafloor, and once they’ve made contact with the sea bottom, these anchors set into place and will not budge. Time and time again independent testing confirms this. To enable you to see for yourself how well the anchor is holding into the sea bed, each beautifully curved anchor is painted with a bright shade of yellow.
Plough shaped anchors are designed to plough the seafloor, as they move through it – hence their name. SPADE anchors by name, and by action, dig deeply into the seafloor. Once they are within the seafloor, the concave shape of SPADE anchors is designed to compact the seafloor, and not move!
The Manufacturer of the SPADE anchor never refers to an anchor’s weight, but rather to its effective surface area. The remarkable efficiency of a SPADE anchor is due to the size and shape of its effective surface: SPADE anchors of the same surface area will have the same holding power, no matter the material of which they are made.
The SPADE anchor is manufactured in three materials (Steel, Aluminum, and Stainless Steel), and in ten sizes. Hi-tensile steel versions are hot-dip galvanized. All SPADE anchors of the same size, regardless of the material they are made of, will work with the same efficiency.
No special mooring line or anchoring technique is needed. Set it and forget it. Free Limited Lifetime Craftsmanship Warranty and 6 Month Performance Warranty with every Spade Anchor.
The bright yellow colour provides the ease of visually checking how well the anchor is dug in. Robust design coupled with beautiful curves makes the Spade Boat Anchor stunning on your bow.
Ease of Use
The anchor effortlessly self-launches and self-retrieves itself. Aggressive quick setting action due to a lead-weighted tip, make the Spade Anchor easy to use.
All models meet the seven safety criteria:
- The anchor must dig in rapidly, regardless of the type of sea bottom.
- The anchor must bury itself deeply within the bottom.
- Once set, the anchor must give the maximum holding power without dragging.
- If the traction force exceeds the bottom holding characteristics, the anchor must offer constant, and maximum, resistance to dragging – even if it moves under extreme load.
- The anchor must keep on holding, regardless of the shift in direction of either the wind or the current.
- The anchor design must not allow the anchor rope to become snagged by the anchor.
- The anchor must be built strongly enough to withstand very high loads.
