    Manson Boss Anchor Size Recommendations

    Manson Boss Anchor Dimensional Drawings

    The Manson Boss Anchor

    • Manson Boss is specifically designed for powerboat conformity and extreme holding conditions
    • It's patented features, design, and robust construction make it the most, technically advanced anchor to ever hit the world market
    • Use a Manson Boss to sleep easy at anchor and protect your family via the safest and only New Zealand made anchor on the market.


    • Patented Manson Shackle Preventor™
      • The Shackle Preventor ™ means you have one slot that is quickly and safely changed from a fixed shank general slot usage into a sliding slot to assist retrieval in foul seabeds. The Preventor saves changing the main shackle between the two slots. This means you simply remove the Preventor for foul anchoring and place it back for all general day to day and storm anchoring.
    • Shank Optimization
      • FEA (finite element analysis) optimized for maximum strength
    • Made from Lloyd's Register certified high tensile steel
    • Shank clearance streamlined
    • Roller Flaps / Trim Flaps:
      • Ensure the fastest set in even the most demanding seabed conditions
      • Raising the holding power by forcing the flukes downwards creating a minimum of 28% deeper setting than other new-generation anchors
    • Double reinforced Nose
    • Nose biased weight concentration enabled by double thickness laminate layer (DTLL) technology for fastest set possible

    All Boss anchors are "Guaranteed for Life Against Breakage"
    **Damage by deformation or bending is not covered by this guarantee.

    Manson Boss Recommended Sizing Specifications :

    • The Anchor sizing chart should be interpreted as a guide only
    • Many factors influence anchor size selection ie, whether the boat is a heavy displacement or a light displacement craft and how much windage the vessel has
    • The chain size, weight and length is critical to anchor performance and if in doubt use larger chain
    • Finally the vessel usage should also be factored in, ie, whether the anchor will only be used as a "lunch pick" in fair weather for day outings or indeed whether the vessel will be going on extended coastal or offshore cruising
    • If in any doubt about anchor selection always use a bigger anchor, in bad weather or motoring failure, it is the only thing that you can rely on to save the lives of you and your crew


    • Dual Shank
      • Dual shank anchoring configuration enables different slots to be used for different ground conditions
        • Using the rock slot, should the anchor become snagged, the shackle can simply slide to the front of the anchor where the traditional trip line was located and pull free. The rock slot feature makes the anchor ideal for anchoring in rock or coral conditions
        • Using the sandlot the anchor will remain buried even with major wind shifts. The sandlot is ideal for all sand, mud, weed and grass conditions. The sandlot is also the recommended attachment for anchoring in extreme wind conditions
      • Built from High Tensile Steel for extreme strength under load. Bisalloy 80 is 780mPa vs Mild Steel 260mPa ensuring far greater shank resistance to deformation
      • Shank is 25% stronger than any other anchor
    • Fluke
      • Reinforced Double Skinned Laminated toe
        • Provides an extremely strong forward section of the anchor where the most loading is concentrated
      • Sharpened Spear Head
        • This feature ensures great penetration into the seabed
      • Material: Made from high tensile Bisalloy80 steel in the anchors
        • Manson has proven to be not only the highest holding but are officially the strongest anchor available
      • In destruction tests, Manson held 25% higher than any other anchor available in New Zealand
