Turnkey rotating anchor solution
Oyster Yachts approached Manson Anchors when looking for a rotating anchor carriage design to apply as standard across their Oyster 885 model – the largest Oyster in their core range.
The yard wanted a turnkey solution to apply to their design, with the anchor, carriage and hydraulics all precommissioned and supplied.
The yard wanted to be sure of proven technology across the range, and requested that Manson Anchors design a system that meant the anchor winch would not have to be adjusted for chain slack. The system also had to be able to rotate 180°, which was challenging to achieve.
A custom mirror polished stainless steel system and Manson Plough Anchor was developed, with the team designing an anchor system that was able to self-adjust chain slack.
Hydraulically controlled, the unit comfortably rotates a full 180 degrees and locks into the deck before deploying the anchor.
The anchor system was supplied to the yard as an easy to install plug-in bolt-in solution, fully commissioned and ready for a straight forward installation.
