CMP launches new Rocna Mk II Anchor

Rocna Mk II Anchor

May 8, 2023

The Rocna Anchors range of popular boat anchors has been expanded with the development of a new improved version of the original Rocna anchor.

The Rocna Mk II anchor is based on the same design pattern as the Rocna Mk I, but refines and upgrades all elements for increased holding performance and strength. Peter Smith, lifetime sailor, boatbuilder, and designer of the Rocna Anchors range, has been working on his new anchor development for years.

“I want to keep improving anchoring for boaters, by applying good engineering fundamentals and taking advantage of the more sophisticated manufacturing methods we have access to now”, said Smith. “The original Rocna is a superb anchor and now well proven with great adoption – the question for me was always, could we improve on it?”

The Rocna Mk II incorporates refinements of the original Rocna design, which has built up a reputation for reliably quick setting and high holding power over years of real-world experience and feedback from thousands of boaters. Smith has also used patented technology shared with the Vulcan anchor, such as the I+V™ shank, which helps make the Rocna Mk II the toughest of all Rocna anchors.
The Rocna Mk II features an all-new patented roll-foil™, a sculpted variation of the original roll-bar which features a series of unique shaped profiles which further assist the anchor’s critical self-righting behavior and help during setting for deeper penetration and additional holding power. The anchor’s fluke also has had a major redesign which optimizes the original Rocna pattern for greater surface area and improved weight distribution.

“The Rocna Mk II is the ultimate, no-compromises Rocna anchor”, said Smith. “Compared to the Rocna Mk I, it can either provide the same performance for a smaller size, or give you greater security and confidence for the same weight. The original Rocna is still a great anchor, but the design finds its best expression in the Mk II, and I would say that is now the best investment choice in terms of anchoring anyone could make for their boat.”

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
