New from Mantus Anchors!

Mantus Anchor Universal Bracket

Have your emergency anchor fully rigged and ready to deploy!

This universal bracket allows you to store an anchor of any design on the rail in cockpit or on the bow

The rollers adjust and allow you to customize the bracket to snugly secure the shank of any design

The tight flitting rollers eliminate any movement, yet the anchor easily slides into the customized bracket

Made from Polished 316 L Stainless Steel


In an emergency it is often difficult to deploy the boats main anchor quickly enough especially when short on crew. Mantus Anchor Bracket allows you to have an emergency anchor on the push-pit right next to the skipper, all rigged and ready todeploy at the moments notice.

Re: New from Mantus Anchors!

Good idea. Costs for a 40 lb or so anchor?

My understanding is that it is a bracket to hold a secondary/spare anchor on a rail somewhere rather than your No 1 anchor which is in its traditional place.

Re: New from Mantus Anchors!

So...you have to lift the anchor up and out of the bracket to deploy?

Re: New from Mantus Anchors!

That is correct... the bracket is simply a storage place for your anchor on the stern... to be available in a emergency.

Re: New from Mantus Anchors!

Just a suggestion...if you really wanted it for an emergency, a pull out pin so it self drop might be a good way to go...especially off the stern.

Re: New from Mantus Anchors!

Looks like a very advanced solution for a very simple problem.

Are they a goodie if you buy a Mantus anchor, or do you pay an extra?

Re: New from Mantus Anchors!

Greg, great idea. My extra Bruce is a pain to store. This may be just what I need.
