Rest assured... it’s a Rocna
The Rocna Story
The Rocna anchor was designed by legendary Kiwi yachtie
Peter Smith, who’s been designing, building and sailing racing
and cruising yachts since the early 1960’s.
Peter, like so many of us, was fed up with dragging anchors
and sleepless nights and decided to do something about it.
This involved countless hours at the design table, tests and
re-tests, modifications and improvements and always practical
testing in a variety of conditions.
The result has been the development of the Rocna anchor
- the next generation - which is fast becoming recognised
world wide as the best anchor available.
I love it!

Why choose a Rocna?
Easy to Use - using a Rocna Anchor just couldn’t be easier. Number One
Rocna is a true multi-purpose anchor that sets in all ocean
• for holding power
floors without any special tricks, giving maximum versatility.
Combine this with its self launch capability and instant set • for reliability
and you have an anchor that just anyone can use. • for peace of mind
Instant set - the design of the Rocna Anchor ensures that • in independent
it lands on the ideal angle for penetration. Rocna’s unique performance testing
chisel tip and weight distribution then combine to ensure a
virtual instant set in most sea bed conditions including thick
weed and kelp.
Ultra high hold - through careful design the Rocna is able to achieve a greater blade
surface area than its competitors. This combined with its concave blades creates a holding
power that is best described as outstanding and earned Rocna number 1 for holding power
in recent independent testing* (refer Sail and Yachting monthly). Not only that but Rocna is
resistant to wind and tide shifts and simply uses a chisel action to stay set and hold.
Environmentally friendly - Rocna uses no lead in the tip. In addition, the instant set and
ultra high hold result in minimum dragging and less damage to the seabed.
Guarantee - we unconditionally guarantee your Rocna will be the
best anchor you’ve ever used - end of story!
Setting and holding are
better than any anchor we
have used in the past,

We’ll let the results speak for themselves.
Instant hook up and a total feeling of security. It is
totally reliable and we have the comfort of knowing it
is not a case of will it hold - it will hold!

Design & Construction
A Rocna’s advantage is in its design - and its construction.
With a design focused on maximum durability and reliability,
there’s simply no compromise.
Rocna’s design is such that it has no moving parts and does
not waste energy on extra lead or cast iron weights. This
means weight is more effectively used in structural strength
and extra blade area for greater holding power.
Each Rocna anchor uses only the finest quality
steels and is individually hand-built to give
you a product second to none.
