Rocna Anchors Launches New Rocna Mk II Anchor
All Marine Spares 10A Wilmette Place Mona Vale NSW 2103 Australia (3 May 2023) – The Rocna Anchors range of popular boat anchors has been expanded with the development of a new improved version of the original Rocna anchor. The Rocna Mk II anchor is based on the same design pattern as the Rocna Original, but refines and upgrades all elements for increased holding performance and strength.
Peter Smith, lifetime sailor, boatbuilder, and designer of the Rocna Anchors range, has been working on his new anchor development for years. “I want to keep improving anchoring for boaters, by applying good engineering fundamentals and taking advantage of the more sophisticated manufacturing methods we have access to now”, said Smith. “The original Rocna is a superb anchor and now well proven with great adoption – the question for me was always could we improve on it?”
The Rocna Mk II is a refinement of the original Rocna design, which has built-up a reputation for reliable quick setting and secure holding power over years of real-world experience and feedback from thousands of boaters. Smith has also used patented technology shared with the Vulcan anchor, such as the “I+V™” shank, which helps make the Rocna Mk II the toughest of all Rocna anchors.
The innovative anchor features an all-new patented “roll-foil™”, a sculpted variation of the original roll-bar which features a series of unique shaped profiles designed to further assist the anchor’s critical self-righting behavior and help during setting for deeper penetration and additional holding power. The fluke also has had a major overhaul which optimizes the original Rocna pattern for greater surface area and improved weight distribution.
“The Rocna Mk II is the ultimate, no-compromises Rocna anchor”, said Smith. “Compared to the Rocna Original, it can either provide the same performance for a smaller size, or give you even greater security and confidence for the same weight. The original Rocna is still a remarkable anchor, but the design finds its best expression yet in the Mk II, and I would say the Rocna Mk II is now the best investment choice in terms of anchoring any boater could make.”
The new Rocna Mk II will be available to view at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from 25th to the 28th of May, at the AMS stand (# PR25). Peter Smith will also be at the show and available to meet the public and discuss anchors and anchoring techniques.
