The Rocna was designed in New Zealand by Peter Smith, a Kiwiboat-builder and cruiser. Dissatisfied with the performance of currently available anchors, Mr. Smith spent several years developing an anchor which would address the short comings identified in other anchors he’d used. Testing each prototype aboard his 50′ 27 tonaluminum alloy sloop Kiwi Roa, the design was improved until he was satisfied that he had achieved the optimal combination of features.
ROCNA: NEW-GENERATION ANCHOR
Recent independent tests by Sail Magazine, Practical Sailor and Cruising World show that New-Generation type anchors consistently out perform the more traditional plough- and claw-type designs. TheRocna’s unique design delivers outstanding performance, as displayed inthe Sail Magazine anchor testing, where Rocna was the #1 performing anchor in the critical “Max Hold Before Release” the maximum holding power generated before the anchor started to drag. The Rocna provided over 40% higher holding power than the second best anchor!
