Rocna vs CQR

I have a Beneteau 400 with a pivoting anchor roller. My current CQR 35 fits ok, not great.

I am planning on a new Rocna 20 kg or a Manson Supreme 20fg..

Question, is the profile of either of these two anchors a good fit for my boat, anyone know how close or the differences to the Rocna or Manson? Anyone got a 20 kg on either a Beneteau 400 or 411? If so how does it fit

I made the cardboard cut out however I think it must be very front heavy

Tks

Re: Ronca vs CQR

Go on Rocnas website and look at the "knowledge base". You should see boats similar to yours with photos of an anchor mounted.

Re: Ronca vs CQR

I went from carrying a 45lb CQR to a 55lb (25kg) rocna. We also have a pivoting roller (although I doubt it is exactly the same as yours). The rocna's fit is very similar, but it is front-heavier, the shank is wider, and is and not as long as the CQR. Fits fine though.

For what it's worth, the Rocna and Manson have very similar holding and design, but the steel in the Manson is superior. Bisalloy 80 for the shank with whatever they are currently using in the Rocna, but it isn't 800 mpa steel.

You might also want to take a look at the Mantus 45 lb. I'm pretty sure the shank is a bit longer on the Mantus, if that makes a difference.

Re: Ronca vs CQR

I recently made the switch from a 45# CQR to a 55# Rocna. Very pleased with the Rocna, by the way.

I first tried a test fit of the comparable Manson, but the bend of the shank on the Manson was a poor fit for my anchor roller. The Rocna has a shank and throat that more closely matched the relatively straight CQR shank, whereas the Manson had a greater overall bend, as well as tighter radii, that precluded a secure fit.

I suggest that you physically test fit any replacement anchor (thank you West Marine for your very fair return policy), paying particular attention to whether the anchor might lift up and out of the rollers in a seaway.

Re: Ronca vs CQR

Good move, you'll appreciate being torn off the bow when you deploy your new anchor, regardless of type. What we've found is that the new gen anchors usually need a leash. We tie a line onto the roll bar and have installed a simple cleat on the pulpit to tie it off. You may have to do that, too.

Re: Ronca vs CQR

We have used the Rocna 25kg for the last four years and never dragged in wind conditions up to 55 knots.

This is the best anchor I have every used!

Re: Ronca vs CQR

We switched out a 65lb CQR for a 40Kg Rocna as our main anchor. Fitted the same. As previous, have never looked back. The Rocna has never failed to hold and usually grabs hard immediately. Definitely better than the CQR in our experience - though the extra weight does not hurt either!

Re: Ronca vs CQR

My 80# Manson Supreme hangs by the chain rode while half of it is on each side of the bow roller. Maybe not pretty but it works.

Here is what a Rocna looks like on a Beneteau-Oceanis-43
