Vulcan Anchor by Rocna 40 Kg.
After years of testing and development, Peter has come up with a design that meets the needs of these customers – the Rocna Vulcan.
The original Rocna has "set the bar" for the highest performance and consistency of behavior when put to the test by a worldwide array of users, and in numerous independent tests. This performance is the result of careful design and engineering by Peter, who has again put to work all of his knowledge and experience to develop a variation on the theme of the ultimate anchor.
The Vulcan capitalizes on already finely tuned design elements, infusing many of its elder siblings' proven performance advantages for an extremely quick and reliable set across a range of seabeds combined with rock solid holding power.
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.
In addition to the use of high tensile steel, shank strength is optimized by a unique I+V ProfileTM shank design, granting improved resistance to bending courtesy of a computer-optimized I-beam geometry. This visually elegant innovation also improves setting performance, with the lower V edge cutting into the seabed and minimizing resistance to deep and secure burial.
Like the Rocna, each Vulcan anchor comes with a Lifetime Warranty against both breakage and bending in addition to manufacturing defects.

Designed in New Zealand by Peter Smith, a Kiwi boat-builder and cruiser. Rocna’s unique design delivers outstanding performance.
Recent independent tests by Sail Magazine, Practical Sailor and Cruising World show that New-Generation type anchors consistently outperform the more traditional plough- and claw-type designs
Extremely rugged construction resists deformation even under heavy or shock loading.
Rollbar ensures anchor will immediately turn over and start to penetrate. Increases tip force, ensuring rapid penetration even in hard or weedy conditions.
Independent tests by Sail Magazine, Practical Sailor and Cruising World show that Rocna New-Generation type anchors consistently outperform the more traditional plow and claw-type designs.
In Sail Magazine anchor testing the Rocna provided over 40% higher holding power than the second best anchor.
All steel construction with no lead inserts. Thicker steel sections provide higher strength for a given anchor weight. A tight curve radius between shank and blade locks the anchor into the bow roller, preventing movement even when working into heavy seas.
Tenacious holding power. Sand, mud, clay or weeds it stays buried even with veering loads. Rugged construction, with a high tensile shank.
Carefully designed to offer the greatest possible compatibility across a wider range of vessel bow configurations, particularly powerboats with a bow pulpit. Vulcan brings the security and reliability of the Rocna anchor to a wider range of boaters who Rocna believe desire improved anchoring performance.

Breaking from the highly successful and acclaimed Rocna design, the Vulcan features a unique combination of shank and fluke geometry which self-rights the anchor on the seabed without the use of a roll-bar. This is assisted by the V-Bulb which extends fluke ballast downward to gain maximum leverage and efficiency.
