"We replaced our Lloyds approved high holding power anchor which consistently failed to hold our yacht, with an Ultra Stainless Steel Anchor and Swivel of the same weight.
I am delighted to confirm that the 80Kg* Ultra not only looks superb but has held my 100 ton yacht securely during 2 days of 40 knot winds with gusts up to 50 knots. At the height of the storm, the anchor slipped some 20m but quickly dug itself in again"

* The recommended Ultra size for 100ton Sail boat is 100kg. However, we wanted to compare its performance with the previous anchor therefore 80kg Ultra is being used on that boat. We believe at the height of the storm 100kg Ultra on that boat would not slip even for 1 meter.
