Anchors & Chaincables for Your (Super) Yacht!

When it comes to yachts, you are aiming for the highest quality, perfect finishings and a luxurious appearance. Our anchors & chaincables will be the finishing touch of your eye catcher! Our POOL® N and POOL® YM anchors are highly suitable for exquisite finishings and are already being used at many yachts. We have also created anchors made of Duplex, which are fully certified and can be finished with a high gloss polish. We always deliver galvanized chaincables for new build yachts. These chaincables are produced in accordance with ISO standard 1704:2022 and galvanized in accordance with ISO standard 1461:2022. At many yachts, an international colour coding scheme is used on chaincables in order to know how much length is out. We can take care of this international coding for you, either in a standard version or, if and when required, made to measure. Refits are the anchors & chains aboard your yacht still in good condition but in need of a new layer of galvanization and/or paint? Would you like to have them re-galvanized and/or repainted? Not a problem. After inspection at your yard or after seeing photos, we can provide a target price of what it will cost to get your anchors & chaincables looking perfect again. Once the materials have arrived at our yard, we will thoroughly inspect them. We will prepare a calibration report if and when required and will determine the total scope of work in consultation with you.
