Rocna was designed by Peter Smith – an experienced sailor who has been building, racing, and cruising sailing yachts since the early 1960’s. The Rocna is an SHHP (Super High Holding Power) type anchor. During seabed testing for classification, Rocna anchors exhibited the highest holding power of any anchor that classification society RINA had ever certified.
Rocna anchors are performing in some of the world’s toughest locales, including Patagonia, Antarctica, Alaska, Greenland, Scotland – as well as enduring temperamental tropical weather. It is a true multi-purpose anchor that sets and holds in most seabeds, from soft mud to hard sand, clay, grass, and kelp.
Rocna anchors are designed – and built – for strength and durability and comes with a Lifetime Warranty against both breakage and bending in addition to manufacturing defects.

Resistant To Wind And Tide Shifts
A Rocna remains stable and buried, and does not roll out on reversal or veering of load, or if dragged beyond yield, providing enhanced security.
Highest Quality Build And Finish
Compare the welds and finish on a genuine Rocna anchor to alternatives. We believe a top-performing product should be built like one, and we spend a lot of time and resources on production and quality control procedures to ensure that this is the case.
High Tensile Steel Shank
Rocna anchors are designed – and built – for strength and durability.
Self-Deploying And Self-Recovering
The Rocna shank is designed so the anchor self-launches and self-stows on the majority of bow-rollers, with the greatest possible reliability.
Fit for All Vessels – and their Operators
The omission of a roll-bar along with a carefully designed shank profile ensures a snug fit on the bows of a widely expanded range of vessels. Platforms, bowsprits, prods, stays, and other protrusions are easily cleared with no hassle or inconvenience.
Smooth Bow Interaction & Compatibility
The Vulcan’s shank shape encourages self-launching and self-stowing upon retrieval on the majority of bow rollers, with a liquid smooth action, ensuring ease of use for all operators.
Strength from Sophisticated Design
In addition to the use of high tensile steel, shank strength is optimized by a unique I+V profile™ shank design, granting improved resistance to bending courtesy of a computer-optimized I-beam geometry. This visually elegant innovation also improves setting performance, with the lower V edge cutting into the seabed and minimizing resistance for a deep and secure burial.
