Revolutionary DeSIGN OF THE SPADE ANCHOR
When Alain Poiraud designed the first SPADE anchor in the mid 1990’s, little did he know that his new anchor was about to launch a new era in anchoring technology.
Originally designed to penetrate Mediterranean sea-grass, the SPADE anchor has now been proven in tests and experiences the world over and represents a giant leap forward in anchor design.
The “Dyson” of the anchor world, Alain, a retired engineer was turned away by anchor manufacturers when he tried to sell his patents to fund his cruising life, so he set up a factory in Tunisia himself and his anchor is now famous the world over.

The SPADE has been designed as the ultimate anchor.
Will always lands the right way up.
The SPADE Anchor’s triangular ballast chamber is filled with lead, this ensures that the SPADE Anchor will always land at the optimum angle for penetration. The SPADE Anchor’s weight distribution ensures that it can even penetrate difficult seabed’s such as dense weed, sea grass, kelp, and gravel. In fact the SPADE anchor positions 50% of its weight directly over the penetrating tip.
Has a Hollow shank.
On the Model 80 and above the SPADE Anchor’s shank is a hollow triangular box section making it extremely strong without compromising the weight distribution.
Will dig in quickly.
SPADE Anchors will dig in immediately (normally within its own length). They will completely bury.
Phenomenal Holding Power.
The SPADE Anchor has a very large concave blade, presenting the maximum surface area in the direction of load.
The SPADE Anchor is designed to penetrate deeply, far deeper than roll bar anchors. This means there is far more seabed above the anchor giving a far superior effective surface are than its size.
Will not roll out in wind or tide shifts.
The SPADE Anchor is designed to be completely roll stable (unlike roll-bar anchors), so it will remain set even with wind and tide shifts.
Will never pull out.
In a normal seabed a Spade anchor will continue to give a maximum resistance to movement no matter what the load once set, it will remain buried and not pull out. (Assuming adequate scope and a non-shelving seabed).
The Spade Anchor will fit most bow rollers without modification and the Spade anchor is designed to be dismantled with ease for stowage.
Built for optimum performance.
Spade anchors are built for optimum performance rather than down to a price and come with a six-month manufacturer full satisfaction warranty
This video illustrates that the Spade Anchor:
- digs in immediately.
- will turn during wind and tide shifts without pulling free.
- will always land at the optimum angle for penetration but should it somehow land upside down it will flip over instantly.
- will penetrate even when clogged with mud or sand.
- can be dismantled for easy stowage – the two pieces are held together by one non load-bearing bolt.
