*Suggested anchor weight/boat size is limited for use on a good anchoring bottom such as deep and consistent sand, mud and clay. Boat size recommendations are for boats of average windage and proportions in 35 knots of wind, average good bottom conditions, and moderate protection from open seas. Note that the loads in 43 knots of wind are twice as much as in 30 knots.

for Stainless Steel XYZ Anchors

WORLDWIDE!

Distributing most of the weight backward by extending long thick and heavy blade’s surface (Distance A) and reducing distance between shackle point and front fluke’s tip (Distance B) enables excessive force to be transferred at the front fluke’s sharp point. Force on the front tip (on the 11kg/23lbs XYZ) is equal to about force on average anchor of 45kg/100bs.

Sharp Edges

The Design of the Extreme enables 360° rotation. Even when pulled from 170° backwards, the XYZ will rotate horizontally and continue to set deep.

17-4PH (H900) stainless steel saw blade

XYZ Extreme enables use of 316L stainless steel or marine grade aluminum fluke. It takes minutes to excange flukes.

2205 stainless steel mirror polished shank

Ultra short, light, sharp and strong Shank has almost no penetration resistance. It is made of 2205 mirror polished stainless steel

Shackle Attachment

Bow-roller pin hole

The Cutting-Edge enables penetration through hard bottoms: slippery weeds, corals*, small rocks etc.

Choice of 316L stainless steel or marine grade aluminum fluke.

NO WELDING!
Connection between the shank and the fluke is made with 4 OVERSIZED 18-8 stainless steel machine screws. (1/2”/13mm).
Each screw is capable of holding 2 (two) large male 6 Ton African elephants.

SHANK
A long shank is easy to bend or even break; a short shank is much stronger. The optimum shank is short, strong, and sharp on both the bottom and top edges. Sharp edges allow the shank to cut through the bottom, not restricting the anchor's ability to bury deeply. ALL EXISTING ANCHORS have long shanks simply because the design does not allow them to be shorter.

Eliminate ROLL-BAR : collection of debris grass and rocks, can choke the fluke. Roll-bar anchors drag in pure sand when the shank and roll-bar are still visible.

Eliminating FRONT BALLAST
decreases total weight requirement by up to 40%.

17-4PH (H900) stainless steel saw blade

Cutting-Edge Saw Blade Insert
is made of corrosion resistant 17-4PH precipitation-hardened stainless steel. 17-4PH is used by NASA and in the aerospace industry. Very high yield strength (up to 1100-1300 Mpa 160-190 ksi) can be achieved.

Important notes:

The setting and holding ability of ANY anchor is not only a function of anchor size, weight and design; it is also a function of the seabed surface and its substance. Some seabed surfaces offer poor holding to ANY anchor. *Anchor weight/boat size suggestions are based on good anchoring bottoms such as deep consistent sand, mud and clay.

Performance data for XYZ anchors are also based on using appropriate size rode for the anchor weight and boat length. XYZ Marine Products does not grant any warranty on holding power or performance.

Testing to failure was done using various 11 lbs/5kg – 32lbs/15kg XYZ anchors. In the USA, tests were done on deep consistent and/or mixed sand, at numerous locations in Long Island Sound, NY. We used a 45’/15 ton, 400HP fishing boat. The boat is owned by Captain Jim McGinness, who witnessed all the testing. Similar tests have been done on the Croatian Adriatic with boats up to 1000 HP. Tests were done with high RPM achieving sudden impact to the anchor that was properly set. Several times we broke 3/4“/20mm (rated at 13,000 lbs/6 ton) three- strand twisted Nylon rope. We also broke 3/8”/10mm stainless steel cable wire and 5/16”/8mm chain. Of all of the rhode materials, chain was the hardest to break! After repeatedly testing to rhode failure, the XYZ anchor was carefully inspected. IT SUFFERED NO DAMAGE OR DEFORMATION!

*The XYZ urge mariners, whenever possible, to avoid anchoring in living coral to avoid damaging this important ecosystem.
Because of continued product improvement, XYZ reserves the right to make changes without notice.
