Most sailboats have a single anchor roller suitable for handling the minimum sized anchor for the boat length.  It's probably enough for short trips in familiar waters, but what about the cruiser who ventures further for longer periods and needs to store and deploy two larger dissimilar anchors?


We solved the dual anchor storage problem with a design built around a custom base plate sized to fit the dimensions of your bow.  Onto this base plate we weld offset fittings to accommodate a fluke type anchor on one side and claw type anchor on the other.

The unique offset design of our Dual Universal Anchor Roller (DUAR ) facilitates the storage, launching and retrieval of two anchors.

In this picture a 45 lb Bruce anchor sits in the Port roller while a Spade A-100 anchor is deployed with all chain rode from the Starboard roller. If you look closely you can see the non-stainless nuts used in the prototype which rusted in a sea water environment. Our production models of course come supplied with stainless fittings.

The DUAR is fabricated from 316 Stainless Steel and is fitted with 4" Diameter Marithane Elastomer wheels.

A stainless steel cover plate is used to enlarge the anchor locker opening to accommodate the use of two anchors and their rode.

We have dual anchor roller designs for boats ranging in size from 36-42ft LOA. The surprising thing (or perhaps it's not so surprising) is that there is not much difference between the dimensions of a base plate for 36 ft sailboat and one for a 42 ft vessel.
