The Vulcan is Rocna’s first major design development since the launch of the highly successful and acclaimed Rocna anchor itself.
It features a unique combination of shank and fluke geometry – including an innovative roll-palm at the rear of the fluke – which self-rights the anchor on the seabed without the use of a roll-bar.
This is assisted by the V-bulb that extends fluke ballast downward to gain maximum leverage and efficiency.
This development permits a larger fluke surface area than competing designs which rely on simple dead weight, while the concave fluke allows for more holding power and security.
The shank profile ensures a snug fit on the bows of a widely expanded range of vessels; platforms, bowsprits, prods, stays, and other protrusions are easily cleared with no hassle or inconvenience.
The Vulcan’s shank shape encourages self-launching and self-stowing upon retrieval on the majority of bow rollers, with a liquid smooth action, ensuring ease of use for all operators.
This visually elegant innovation also improves setting performance, with the lower V edge cutting into the seabed and minimizing resistance to a deep and secure burial.
Vulcan anchors are available in 10 sizes from 4 kg (9 lb) – 55 kg (121 lb) to suit vessels from small runabouts to larger launches.
