Plough Anchor (HHP)
5 - 5000 kg
Galvanized Steel, Polished Stainless Steel & Glass Bead Blasted
Engineered to provide a strong and secure hold, 90% of all cruising boats use plough (CQR-style) anchors. The Manson Plough Anchor has hinged shanks, improving the scope of movement of the chain and has a weighted tip delivering secure reliable holding in sand, weeds and mud.
The Manson Plough Anchor is a proven yachting favourite and traditionally tends to be used on Super – Sailing – Yachts, deployed via an anchor deployment arm. Increasingly we are seeing designers select the Manson Plough Anchor in conjunction with the patent pending Subplough System from sister company Bowmaster. See here for more on this underwater anchor deployment solution.
The Manson Plough Anchor is Lloyd’s Register Type Approved as a HHP (High Holding Power) anchor and is available in approved sizes from 5kg – 1000kg, and unapproved from 1000kg – 5000kg.
