Rocna is a famous company making strong galvanized 2205 stainless steel anchors. RINA had been off lately conducting a series of tests and quality control on Rocna before it could certify it with Registro Italiano Navale’s most esteemed “Super High Holding Power.”

According to Rocna, this type of anchor was demanded by the commercial and superyacht owners. However, the main reason behind this high demand was its sheer design – a result of patented geometry and quality of materials utilized. It is built to settle immediately and dig deeper when pulled. The roll bar and setting skids together push the anchor down into the seabed even if it reaches up the wrong way.

After it is placed properly, the large concave blade assists in retaining its position. These blades are claimed to be 50% bigger than those of the same weight. Moreover, its performance is enhanced due to an angular design which exerts 33% of the anchor’s weight to the sharp chisel tip.

Interestingly, Steve Bambury, MD at Rocna maintains that it was the first time that RINA had come across such excellent holding power test results which were in excess of ten times that of the benchmark stock less anchor.
