What is a HHP anchor?

HHP stands for High Holding Power. A HHP anchor is designed to offer superior holding power compared to traditional anchors. It typically features a modified design and higher weight-to-size ratio, allowing it to penetrate various seabed conditions more effectively and provide better holding capabilities, especially in challenging environments or adverse weather conditions.

What is AC anchor?

AC anchor stands for Admiralty Pattern Anchor. It is a type of anchor that has a long history and is commonly used in marine applications. The AC anchor is characterized by its traditional design, which includes a central shank with two arms or flukes extending from it. These arms are curved and pointed to grip the seabed securely, providing stability and holding power to vessels when anchored.

What is a Spek anchor?

A Spek anchor, also known as a Stockless Anchor, is a type of anchor commonly used on ships and other marine vessels. Unlike traditional anchors, the Spek anchor does not have a stock (a crossbar at the top). Instead, it features two large pivoting flukes connected to a shank. This design allows for easier stowage and handling aboard ships while still providing reliable holding power when deployed. The Spek anchor is widely used in both commercial and military maritime operations.
