Fortress FX-16 Anchor - 5 Kg
The Fortress FX-16 is one of the world's leading marine anchors made from aluminium with no weld seams meaning the end product is much stronger and less likely to break. The anchor itself is lighter with more holding power than any other boat anchor.
The Fortress FX16 suits boats between 10 and 12 metres long (for more info consult the size guide) and also comes with a 1 year warranty for replacement parts. If you are not sure which size you need still please consult one of our specialists on moorings and anchors on 00353 28 23190.
Add chain, 3 strand 14mm nylon and 2 x shackles for a full anchor kit (see related products).
Anchor 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.
Fortress anchors can be quickly disassembled for compact storage as a spare or storm anchor.
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.
Fortress anchors offer a Lifetime Parts Replacement Warranty. In the unlikely event of damaging an anchor part, Fortress will replace the damaged part for free. The only cost to the customer is for shipping & handling, which is nominal.
