Our Anchors' Advantages- Why Viking?

 Straight forward:

  • Low weight
  • High surface penetration capabilities
  • Ultrafast setting and resetting 
  • Incredible holding power
  • Long-life durability
  • Low volume while in storage
  • Unique retrieval system
  • Unlimited lifetime warranty 
  • Tailor-made adjustment abilities

Regular steel coated with zinc by way of a galvanizing process is the typical and most economical material used for anchor construction, some will say it is the best for anchors but we will not get into that. Stainless steel has its own advantages, but we'll leave it for now.

The quality of both steel and a galvanizing process can vary dramatically. Steels vary in both strength, mild to high tensile, as well as metallurgical parameters. The initial parameters of the steel are defined in the factory the raw material is made in. The mechanical process (casting, forging, milling and such) can also have a large impact on metal characteristics, behavior, and quality.

The fluke, shank roll-bar and the tip of the fluke in anchors should be made with different types of metal, as each part requires different levels of tensile and strength.

Along with using best-fit materials to our anchors, we use the uniquely-developed geometry which helps us achieve the strength needed for our low weight 

anchors.

In our manufacture facility, our carefully tailor-made anchor design enables us to reduce our anchors' weight/holding power ratio significantly, and that is why, as you can see in our tables and charts on the website, all Viking anchors are lighter than expected, in comparison to their similar boat-size competitors.

Once you finish assembling and mounting your new Viking anchor at your bow, you will surely feel you you've made a new friend. This friend will give you the confidence to sleep at night knowing that you are 100% secured. It will set every time, and whenever you need it to, in any type of seabed. It will overcome the harshest of wind forces and will be easily retrieved when tangled with other anchor chains, using our revolutionary "Anchormate" system for emergency anchor retrieval. Supplied free of charge with your new Viking Anchor.

Congratulations, you have got a new friend.

You will probably enjoy your Viking anchor as long as you live, we are saying that not because we have the prophecy of knowing when your time comes, we say that because we believe in our products so much that we know they will last long enough for you to enjoy them as long as you live.
