Whether used as a primary anchor or conveniently-stowed backup, Fortress Marine Anchors are well-known for their exceptional holding capability. Now, the company is offering two of its most popular models in convenient, Complete Anchoring Systems that include chain, a shackle and 25% more rope than the competition for safer sets and anchoring in deeper water.

Fortress anchors are made in the USA from a rust-proof, marine-grade aluminum-magnesium alloy. They're incredibly lightweight, yet provide superior holding to steel anchors weighing twice as much. Additionally, they're quick and easy to assemble and take apart.

Two large, precision-machined and sharpened flukes ensure that Fortress anchors set fast and dig deep. Unlike others, they're easily adjusted from a 32° angle for use in sand and clay to 45° for soft mud. Unique Mud Palms are included to optimize setting performance in problem soft bottoms.

Weighing only 4 lbs., the FX-7 model is for boats up to 27'; the FX-11 accommodates vessels up to 32' and weighs 7 lbs. Both Complete Anchoring Systems include 15' of 1/4" proof coil chain that is spliced to 250' of shock- absorbing 3/8" three-strand nylon rope and a 1/4" shackle. They come with an informative Safe Anchoring Guide.
