Fortress anchors are widely regarded as ‘The World’s Best Anchor. In test after test, from coast to coast and from around the world, no anchor in history has consistently outperformed other anchors as much as the Fortress Anchor. Why? Years of research & development, high-tech materials & manufacturing & thousands of real world tests are your assurance of performance, quality, & value. Fortress weighs only half as much as heavier steel anchors & yet outperforms them all. The Fortress design does not depend upon weight to provide world class performance. All this adds up to your best value in anchoring safety and convenience. Precision machined from an aluminium alloy that is as strong as steel but only half the weight, the Fortress is easy to manage, rustproof, sharper than heavy, dull edged steel and will set faster and penetrate deeper into common sea bottoms for incredible holding power. Lifetime Parts Replacement Warranty. If an anchor part becomes bent or damaged, then please contact Fortress for an immediate replacement. The Fortress is popular for 3 main reasons: they are stronger, faster & lighter than other anchors.

A review by the US Navy states that ‘Fortress anchors had far greater holding power than any other anchor tested.’ What an accolade! Over the years anchor design has completely revolutionised & designers no longer rely on weight for the anchor’s ability to hold. Fortress is no different – Fortress have designed an anchor that relies on its shape to hold position. The fluke angle is adjustable between 32° & 45° which dramatically increases holding power in problem soft mud bottoms – a patented feature for the Fortress anchor. This is why the Fortress has proved itself time & time again. One such occasion is Yachting Monthly – In a nutshell, their reviewer said ‘It’s holding power was absolutely astonishing.’ The full review can be found here. For further test results see the Fortress Website

Faster Setting:
A faster setting anchor means peace of mind regardless of the situation. The Fortress anchor is precision made in aluminium-magnesium alloy, which means its sharper & therefore faster setting in common seabeds. Watch the Fortress ‘Faster’ Video. Read this very emotive review ‘The Fortress anchor had saved my life and my boat!’ 

The Fortress Anchor is far lighter than other anchors on the market. This is because it relies on its design, rather than its weight, to hold position which means it can be made from a far lighter material such as an aluminium-magnesium alloy. Overall, this makes the anchor far easier to handle. Watch the Fortress 'Lighter’ Video.
