Spade-Anchor the best in the world

SPADE ANCHOR DESCRIPTION

The SPADE anchor is manufactured in three materials (Steel, Aluminium, and Stainless Steel), and in twelve sizes.

Hi-tensile steel versions are hot-dip galvanised. All SPADE anchors of the same size, regardless of the material they are made of, will work with the same efficiency.

You will find all technical data on the appropriate technical details page.

We are selling our products direct as well as through a dealer network.

Note: Plough shaped anchors are designed to plough the seafloor, as they move through it – hence the 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 thus not move! This design is unique.

Seven Safety criteria (Summary)

At SPADE we never refer to an anchor’s weight, but rather to its effective surface area.

Seven Safety criteria (Summary)

(for further detail see technical details)

At SPADE we never refer 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 they are made of. All models meet the seven safety criteria :

– 1. The anchor must dig in rapidly, regardless of the type of sea bottom.

– 2. The anchor must bury itself deeply within the bottom.

There’s no need to worry anymore!

The SPADE anchor is a very safe anchor. It’s also very easy to use :

– doesn’t require you to use any special mooring line or anchoring technique

– can be used with a low rode-length to depth ratio

– is painted bright yellow so you can visually check how well it’s dug in

– is self-launching, and self-retrieving

– fits snugly on most bow rollers, presenting a rounded forward surface

– can be easily dismantled into shank and body, for storage or transport
