MAntus Products

We sell and install the entire line of Mantus brand products. The Mantus Anchor is a multipurpose, high-performance, new generation boat anchor. Over the last decade, tests performed by Cruising World, Practical Sailor, Sail and PMY magazines proved that new-generation type boat anchors outperform the traditional designs. Designed to set in very hard or grassy bottoms, The Mantus Boat Anchor has been extensively tested against the competition and will provide you with the best performance, guaranteed. No other boat anchor on the market can set as rapidly, reliably and securely. We have personally tested and now use these anchors for our own boats. They are simply amazing.


DIGS LIKE NO OTHER The Mantus Anchor is designed to penetrate dense, grassy bottoms and set with unparalleled holding power. When tested, our anchors set faster and deeper than any other tested anchor, including Rocna, Manson Supreme, Bulwagga, Fortress, Bruce, CQR and Danforth anchors.

EASY TO STORE The Mantus anchor lineup simply has the best boat anchors available. Whether you are a long range cruiser, racing or going out for a day sail. The Mantus breaks down for easy storage, so you can store one or two as spares without taking up much needed boat space.

BUILT STRONG

  • Formed out of high quality steel plate. Contains no cast parts.

  • Shank and shank boot are welded from top and bottom.

  • Shank and roll bar are bolted to the fluke.

  • ASTM certified steel bolts are oversized with a large margin to ensure safety.

  • Although the shank is attached to the fluke with 4 bolts, a single bolt has sufficient strength to handle the maximum expected load on the anchor. Bolt Details.

  • Stainless Steel anchors feature a 2205 Duplex shank and 316L stainless steel fluke. The surface is hardened by shot-peening and then electro-polished to provide maximum corrosion resistance.

  • In the carbon steel version every part of the anchor system is hot-dipped galvanized for corrosion protection. (All shanks are HT ASTM 514 Steel and flukes are mild steel A36 equivalent)

  • Sharp-headed nose is precision machined to achieve the perfect chisel shape to achieve maximum penetrating power.

LIFE TIME WARRANTY Mantus Anchors offers a lifetime warranty on its anchors *see Warranty section for details.
