The Heavy Weight Champion, Practical Sailor Magazine’s Best Choice in the larger anchor category. In extreme conditions, the working anchor on a yacht must not only have good holding power but set quickly and perform well in a variety of bottom conditions.
“The Ray does make an excellent general – purpose anchor for serious cruisers likely to encounter challenging conditions regularly”.
“Practical Sailor’s Best Choice for difficult conditions (bad bottom/short scope) in the Manson Ray”.
Inspired by a variation of the Bruce Anchor originally designed in 1933 to anchor large oil rigs in the North Sea, the Manson Ray anchors are fabricated, not cast, to enable exact measurements and slight design modifications. Fabrication also enables a consistent quality of steel used in the manufacturing process.
The Manson Ray is certified to Lloyd's Register as a HHP (High Holding Power) anchor. It is fabricated from the highest strength/quality steel or stainless steel and is proudly manufactured in New Zealand the home of the Blue Water Sailor.
The Ray anchor is a quick set anchor. It's ideal for use in sand and mud.
