The Box Anchor is designed for boats reaching up to 70 feet in length. It has the unique ability to set quickly into a lake or ocean bottom without the need for your boat's mechanical power, eliminating the common necessity to "power down" in order to ensure stability. The Box Anchor folds flat for storage, sets into any bottom condition, uses only half the amount of line as a traditional anchor, and will reset itself to compensate for any change in wind, weather, or water current. Each of these exceptional qualities combines to create a truly revolutionary, multi-faceted boat anchoring product.

The Box Anchor is a state of the art offshore boating anchor that brings anchoring to a new level of sophistication by allowing you to have more control over the placement of your boat, regardless of the situation. It requires no chain and only a fraction of the line used for a traditional Danforth anchor, making the Box Anchor easier to handle than most other boat anchors available.

The Box Anchor’s unprecedented patented design allows your boat to be held at a 45-degree angle from the bottom, digging the downward facing flukes firmly into the bottom without snagging them permanently on debris. When it comes to retrieval, just pull the line to bring the boat over the top of the anchor and the lack of upward facing surface area will allow the Box Anchor to pop right off the bottom. This same principal works in wind or current change. 

With a traditional boat anchor, if you are in a cove or canyon and the wind direction suddenly changes, you have to power up the boat, retrieve the anchor, and try to reset it to accommodate the new situation. The Box Anchor has been designed to take care of all of this for you. The new wind direction brings the boat over the top of the anchor freeing it from the bottom, but as the boat passes over the top of the anchor and continues towards its new resting place, the Box Anchor simply rolls over on its opposite side to set firmly in the new direction. When it comes time for storage, simply retrieve the anchor, release the stainless steel stabilizing arm, and fold the Box Anchor flat to be stored in its ventilated storage bag.
