Kobra® anchor

The Kobra anchor bites into the seabed within seconds and has a very high holding power, thanks to its weighted tip and very broad shoulders. The outstanding performance of the Kobra results from its particular geometric proportions, which allow you to select safely up to 2 sizes down compared to the usually recommended anchor weight.

  • Kobra 1 with folding shank (patented)

Cleverly designed to be stored on the bow roller or stowed in the chain locker thanks to its collapsible shank.
Its high holding power makes it ideally suitable for use as a picnic anchor, used in conjunction with a weighted mooring line. This reduces the effort necessary in the absence of windlass.

  • Kobra 2 with fixed shank.

Anchor is supplied with shank not locked (for transport).
Shank must be secured and bolted before use.

Features

Unanimously acclaimed by the European boating press

"Our underwater footage proves the excellence of the design –the Kobra was the second-best anchor on test– and its behaviour in use was reassuringly predictable. It never failed to set, always digging in rapidly and burying itself well. It’s assuredly the winner of this test. Taking into account the modest price tag, it’s excellent value-for-money."
