The most common bow anchors for conventional vessels, designed to fit most anchor pockets. Sizes typically vary from 10kgs to 25 tonnes.
High Holding Power Anchors
High Holding Power Anchors are tested for efficiency against standard stockless anchors and must hold at least twice the weight. “High Holding Power” (HHP) is a classification awarded by societies on passing a range of tests. Sizes typically vary from 50kgs to 20 tonnes are ideal for barges, oil rigs, offshore construction and moorings.
A kedge anchor is a smaller, lighter anchor used as a secondary or spare anchor on vessels. They complete the process of warping or pulling a ship along from a mooring cable when the anchor is dropped.

Strong holding power in sand and mud and versatile for use on a number of offshore commercial boats. Ideal for daily use. Typical sizes go up to 30, 000 lbs.
For permanent moorings and channel buoys, mushroom anchors bury themselves into the seabed and have a firm hold that tightens should external pressures put more strain on your vessel eg. winds, strong current.
