MANSON ANCHORS Supreme Anchors

A fast-setting, high-holding “scoop style” anchor for all sea bottoms

These Lloyd’s Register Super High Holding Power (SHHP) approved anchors set immediately, digging in fast to provide peace of mind in crowded anchorages. The world’s only New Zealand made anchor provides excellent performance in a variety of seabeds.

Lloyd’s Register Type Approval illustrates the highest possible certification an anchor can receive. Both the anchor and manufacturing process must undergo stringent reviews and tests by Naval Architects and Surveyors including rigorous seabed testing. Approval means this anchor exceeds all current certification codes for quality, performance, craftsmanship, and most of all safety.

Built from certified high tensile steel by certified welders, this “scoop” style anchor uses a roll bar to self-right instead of a heavily weighted tip. This ensures weight can be distributed to the load-bearing fluke for increased surface area and a much greater holding power. The sharp spear point digs right in to almost every seabed type, penetrating deeply and setting immediately. The dual operation shank has two slots for easy retrieval in different seabed conditions: long slot for rock and coral; short slot for most day-to-day anchoring. Designed to fit most standard bow roller fittings and to be self-launching.

  • Style: Fixed shank “scoop”
  • Material: High tensile hot-dipped galvanized or 316 satin finish stainless steel; Shank: Bisalloy 80 for extreme strength under load
  • Application: Most bottom types
  • Pros: Narrow shank profiule for deep penetration, wide fluke and chisel tip for high holding power, sets easily from bow roller, roll bar for self-righting and resets
  • Cons: More expensive than fluke anchors; comparable in price with plow style anchors
  • Warranty: Lifetime parts and workmanship

    Our story is one like many others only I did not know it until we had our Manson Supreme.

    For years we used a genuine CQR because that was the common wisdom. I guess I followed the herd, so to speak. Over the 15 years we used the CQR I was never happy with the way it set. Sometimes we would need to make several attempts in one area while users of another anchor would come in and set theirs on the first try. This was not for poor technique. We always tested the set of our anchor with the motor, as a good mariner should, just before retiring to bed for the evening. Many times the anchor was still not set and we would again, go through the setting routine.

    Over the years we learned how to use it but never slept well. It was a one eye open type of rest but not what I could call sleep.

    We had a number of draggings when wind or tide shifts occured and three events I would call "set dragging" for lack of a better term where the anchor was certainly set but we steadily moved and dragged when the winds piped up over 30 knots. I even dove on it one morning after dragging. It had been set and left a furrow over 200 yards long in the soft muddy bottom. Lucky for us this was late fall and there were no other boats around.

    One night in 2006 we dragged badly. It was after a wind shift and we'd been anchored in this location for three days in winds to 25 knots with no issues at all. We were woken by yelling and the crunching of fiberglass as we'd dragged into another boat when the wind shifted directions and came back up to 15-20 knots. Our plow had failed to reset itself on the middle of the night shift.

    That sinlge event cost us thousands of dollars and was the end of our days with the CQR.

    I began asking around and takling to owners of Manson Supreme, Spade and Rocna anchors, as well as Delta and Bruce. The responses I got regarding Spade, Manson Supreme and Rocna were nothing short of stunning compared to what we had experienced with our CQR. Many of the folks I spoke with had also been CQR users and that was part of my questioning.

    Our Manson Supreme has been such a dramatic change that I am amazed manufacturers can still sell some of the older designs. There is no comparison between our Manson Supreme and our old CQR, none. Some of the comments I kept hearing were "Be careful when you back down it may knock you off the bow.". Initially I dismissed these as exuberance over their anchor choice but I soon found out these people were not joking.

    So far our Manson Supreme has set every try on the first try, and within inches. We measured successful sets with our old anchor in tens of yards, if it set at all on the first try.

    Our Manson Supreme has never once dragged or failed to reset on us. We can not budge the anchor even with our 50HP diesel in reverse at full throttle using a Max Prop.

    We actually had one event, due to weather, where we had no choice but to use a scope of slighlty less than 2:1. We set at a longer scope and backed down hard to set the Manson Supreme then shortened scope as needed. We survived peak gusts to 36 knots at slightly under 2:1. I was certianly nervous, and slept like it was our CQR, but it gave me a reinforced confidence in what these new anchors can do.

    This anchor has been some of the best piece of mind I have spent money on for our boat. I actually sleep at night as does my wife.

    I can not recommend this anchor strongly enough when compared to our old CQR. Other newer designs may perform similarly but I can only speak to the differnces in performance between our old CQR and our Manson Supreme.

    Watch out for flaws in galvanizing

    I ordered a 10# supreme and it had a flaw in the galvanizing so that the bare metal was exposed at the attachment point for the shackle. WM was eager to work with me to replace it. Unfortunately, the replacement also had similar problems with a few spots where bare metal was exposed near where the roll bar was welded to the main scoop part.

    WM is working on finding an anchor for me that does not have any flaws in the galvanizing. Until then, if you order one, inspect your anchor well when you get it. (This advice is probably good for all galvanized anchors.) I also emailed Manson directly with pictures of the flaws.

    I would still buy a Manson Supreme once the flaws are eliminated.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Supreme Anchors:

          We use this anchor primarily to hold a blow back position for deep dropping on a large center console over the vertical wall around an Island in the Bahamas. The anchor is dropped on top of the ledge in 100-250 feet. quick setting is critical. The Manson 25 sets hard in a few feet every drop even with a steep scope and only 8 ft of chain. the old Danforth 25 often failed to set at all or caught and released repeatedly or just dragged gradually. Not the Manson. Heck it sets so hard every time its not easy to retrieve using the anchor ball method. Its a truly great anchor.

            Comments about Supreme Anchors:

            2002 34 ft American Tug with the 45 Manson...All chain. I bought the Manson because we had some problems setting anchor with our Bruce in the Abacos last spring...In places, they have 2-5 inches of sand over marl so the Bruce would try to set but bounced off of the hard sand beneath the soft sand. The Manson cured this problem with its sharper point which was able to set into the marl.
            We went up to Maine from Ft. Lauderdale last summer and fall [2012] and had no problems in either direction. We have put a total of 2,700 hours on the boat in the last 4 1/2 years. [ Loop, Chesapeake,Maine,Bahamas, and local cruising]
            It is a good , fast setting anchor.

                Comments about Supreme Anchors:

                Installed over 1 year ago, and have only had one occasion, in 25 mph wind on weedy area, that I kept hooking weeds, and not the bottom, at Dunbar , near lake Erie, all other times, 1st try was a successful hookup. Rode out the 2012 4th of July squall, my friends Danforth came loose right away and my Manson Supreme 25lb held my 31ft Stamas with hardtop, and my friends 27ft Amberjack rafted off of me for about 1 hour in 50 mph winds. It does look a little goofy, and does not fit my anchor roller perfect, but it does fit where the old danforth went. The Hoop actually makes it easy to hand down to a person in a dinghy, that is going to run it out for you, and it is less likely to hurt you than a danforth.

                For me it is an awesome anchor! I bought one size up for safety. Problem with bow roller fitting with the large shank and had to modify... definite consideration! Bow roller modifications are not easy or cheap. Also do not use with a swivel attachment. I used a straight SS Locking U-bolt. It will turn around on tide change but dug right back in on reset with less than 2-3ft of travel! We slept well, rock or sand, 40-60 knts of wind, big tide changes in the PNW. She always held! Used all chain anchor rode and our old Islander Freeport 41' never budged night after night!

                  Replaced 45# CQR with Manson Supreme 45# on our new boat, a 46' Grand Banks Europa. Anchored in an unprotected spot and experienced a mid-night squall with winds topping 50kts. We had 75' of chain deployed in 15' of water. Despite howling winds and breaking surf,our boat didn't budge an inch. With 50 years of boating experience and a Captain's license, I can honestly say this is one of the best boat purchases I have ever made.

I even dove on it one morning after dragging. It had been set and left a furrow over 200 yards long in the soft muddy bottom. Lucky for us this was late fall and there were no other boats around.

                      One night in 2006 we dragged badly. It was after a wind shift and we'd been anchored in this location for three days in winds to 25 knots with no issues at all. We were woken by yelling and the crunching of fiberglass as we'd dragged into another boat when the wind shifted directions and came back up to 15-20 knots. Our plow had failed to reset itself on the middle of the night shift.

                      That sinlge event cost us thousands of dollars and was the end of our days with the CQR.

                      I began asking around and takling to owners of Manson Supreme, Spade and Rocna anchors, as well as Delta and Bruce. The responses I got regarding Spade, Manson Supreme and Rocna were nothing short of stunning compared to what we had experienced with our CQR. Many of the folks I spoke with had also been CQR users and that was part of my questioning.

                      Our Manson Supreme has been such a dramatic change that I am amazed manufacturers can still sell some of the older designs. There is no comparison between our Manson Supreme and our old CQR, none. Some of the comments I kept hearing were "Be careful when you back down it may knock you off the bow.". Initially I dismissed these as exuberance over their anchor choice but I soon found out these people were not joking.

                      So far our Manson Supreme has set every try on the first try, and within inches. We measured successful sets with our old anchor in tens of yards, if it set at all on the first try.

                      Our Manson Supreme has never once dragged or failed to reset on us. We can not budge the anchor even with our 50HP diesel in reverse at full throttle using a Max Prop.

                      We actually had one event, due to weather, where we had no choice but to use a scope of slighlty less than 2:1. We set at a longer scope and backed down hard to set the Manson Supreme then shortened scope as needed. We survived peak gusts to 36 knots at slightly under 2:1. I was certianly nervous, and slept like it was our CQR, but it gave me a reinforced confidence in what these new anchors can do.

                      This anchor has been some of the best piece of mind I have spent money on for our boat. I actually sleep at night as does my wife.

                      I can not recommend this anchor strongly enough when compared to our old CQR. Other newer designs may perform similarly but I can only speak to the differnces in performance between our old CQR and our Manson Supreme.

                          My wife got this for me for Christmas as we wound up bending the shaft on our Danforth after being committee board on a pretty rough day (30 knot winds and an opposing current). It was literally a shoot out between the Supreme and the Rocna. A big thing was several people I trust said the MS was just as good as the Rocna (and there is criticism the Supreme is a knock off of the Rocna) and that the shaft was a bit thicker and no controversy over the lineage of the steel. From the ratings both hold very well, and while it should not be a consideration the Supreme was about $100 less than the Rocna. Finally, on my Catalina 310 I was worried the Rocna 10 was too small and the Rocna 15 was a bit too big, where the Supreme was in-between size of those two. So with performance about equal, fewer questions about steel quality, a more appropriate size, and a much nicer price the Supreme was the choice. You should check out the video as it is an awesome reason why you buy this anchor. While the video is of a Rocna, you can get the point.

                            Comments about Supreme Anchors:

                            These new generation anchors really are a huge step up from previous anchors. They set quickly and reliably on the first try almost every time and do not pull out of the seabed when the wind shifts. Their holding power is also very good for the weight, not as good as a fortress but overall, they are a better anchor for someone looking to hang on the hook overnight.

                            I used to prefer Rocna but with their recent steel issues, Manson Supreme is the clear winner. The only main anchors I would consider these days are this anchor and the Spade.

                            Bottom line is that it did not budge in a tropical storm and several severe thunderstorms.
