The Fortress FX-7 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 FX7 suits boats between 5 and 8 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.

No Other Anchors Compare with Fortress, the Best Value in Anchoring Safety and Convenience
In test after test, from coast to coast and from around the world, no anchor in history has been called "The World's Best Anchor" by more boaters and respected marine experts than Fortress ... and for good reason.
Years of research and development, high-tech materials and manufacturing, and thousands of real world tests are your assurance of performance, quality and value. Fortress weighs only half as much as heavier steel anchors and yet outperforms them all.
All Fortress Anchors feature Mud Palms designed to help the anchor set faster in any type of sea bottom. Mud Palms create a "lift" to the crown of the anchor, causing the flukes to point more directly to the seabed. This helps the anchor set faster ... in any bottom.
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.
