Testimonials

This is what our clients from around the world are saying about our products and services.

I have recently purchased a Vulcan 44. We have a 65′ houseboat on Old Hickory lake. Part of the Cumberland river system. We typically boat with several friends with 70′ to 100′ houseboats. Most of these use a Fortress or Danforth style anchor. Often we may have 6 to 8 boats tied together. Usually light wind and very little current. But that said we almost always have to reset the anchor or anchors every weekend. Sometimes 2-3 times! So far that has changed with my new Vulcan anchor! It sets instantly and holds! To be fair we have only used it a few times. But we had 5,6, and even 7 houseboats tied up on that one anchor! All of my friends say they are sold on this anchor. I can’t say they each buy one. But some of them will!

I am certainly a very happy customer so far. I will sleep good on the hook tonight because I feel confident my anchor will hold. Paul Barlar

I can’t tell you how much we LOVE our Rocna. It has provided so many nights at anchor (over 350 at least) in peace knowing we will be in the same spot we dropped it in the morning. From the Great Lakes to the east coast, to the Caribbean and back we relied on our Rocna and she held fast! Steve & Felicia Kas

Rocna

I have a complaint about the Rocna anchor… it’s too good!

I have a 2002 Maxum 4200 SCR that weighs about 34,000 pounds with twin Cummins 450C Diesels. The anchor that came with my boat was a beautiful polished stainless steel plow type. That gorgeous anchor couldn’t secure my boat to save its life. I remember trying 10 times to anchor my boat in a calm bay and the damn thing wouldn’t catch. As an anchor, it’s life is over because I did my research and bought a 20 kilo Rocna. Each time I’ve anchored my boat after buying the Rocna, the anchor secured the boat on the first attempt. I had no problem using only my Rocna with two additional boats of almost equal size. Last week I was in about 16 feet of water in Biscayne Bay, Miami, FL USA ( sand and mud mostly ) and when it came time to pull the anchor up, my shackle broke and my Rocna was left at the bottom. Before the break, the anchor was so secure that it bent the anchor chain pulpit which is a very strong thick polished stainless steel. I had a Captain operating the boat and he was directly overhead and then tried to unhook the anchor by using various angles. The Rocna was burried deeply and securely set.

I was angry that I lost the Rocna (forgot to note the GPS location) but happy to know the Rocna was THAT GOOD.

I bought the exact same anchor a few days later along with some goggles and fins so I can search for my first Rocna. Knowing that the Rocna is so good, I’ll be prepared next time it sets too strong.

I can’t brag enough about this anchor so thank you for a great design.

I want to share a story of success with you. I bought a Rocna for my 10m catamaran and put it to a good test while anchored in Loch Eriboll on the north coast of Scotland. Despite a stormforce 10 blowing through the Rocna held firm which truly made me realize that I had made the right choice!

Rocna 44 holds through hurricanes Irma and Maria!

Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your product. I am in St Maarten on my Cheoy Lee 44′ and the boat just went through hurricanes Irma which was a direct hit with winds gusting to 250mph, and hurricane Maria right after with winds of 125mph. I had my boat in a marina with my Rocna 44 set on 3/4″ anchor line in about 15 feet of water and that anchor never broke loose. It held through both storms and stopped the bow of my boat from moving in a lateral motion. This probably saved all my dock lines from breaking. As you may know about 90% of all the boats on the island sank, so I consider myself very lucky. I have owned boats for 35 years and your anchor is the best I have owned so far. Keep up the good work guys.

Rubicon 3 heads off on sailing expeditions to some of the world’s more remote areas and having a top quality anchor is paramount for us. Anchored off somewhere like the coast of Greenland, we need to know that our anchor will penetrate and hold in almost any environment. It sets well, has huge holding power and deals effectively with difficult seabeds such as kelp. This is a top quality anchor.
