    Benefiting from years of Fortress Anchor Research and Development, Guardian offers excellent quality, performance and economy. Guardian is made from the same high tensile, corrosion resistant aluminum magnesium alloy and manufacturing precision as Fortress.

    The use of slightly smaller extrusion profiles and the elimination of some of Fortress' extra features, such as anodizing, adjustable fluke angles, and several machining steps has resulted in a very affordable alternative to those heavy, rust-prone steel anchors.


    • Made of aluminum magnesium alloy
    • Stronger and lighter than competitive steel anchors


    • Recommended boat length: 28 - 33 ft. (8 - 10 m)
    • Weight: 7 lbs (3.2 kg)

    • Dimensions (see diagram):
      • Shank length (A): 29" (737 mm)

    *Rope recommendation based on 25% of breaking strength. Rope must be in good condition.
