Lewmar Delta anchors make anchoring as quick and stress-free as possible.
Nothing’s better than spending a night out on the water with the family, but to fully enjoy it, you need to have complete confidence in your anchor maintaining you in place. Lewmar knows this, and this is why they manufacture to the highest quality standards possible, in-house, and to a design that has been developed and perfected through decades of research and experience.
With a Lloyd’s Registered Lewmar Delta anchor on the end of your chain, you can sleep soundly, regardless of where you are, weather conditions, etc.
What Sets A Lewmar Delta Anchor Apart From Other Anchors
Thanks to a unique shank profile and ballasted tip, the Delta anchor is self-launching. The low center of gravity and self-righting geometry ensure that the Lewmar Delta anchor will set immediately & fully. The Lewmar Delta anchor has Lloyd’s Register General Approval of an Anchor Design as a High Holding Power anchor. All Delta anchors are guaranteed for life against breakage.

Most importantly, a Delta Anchor will lead to a good nights sleep and an even easier morning when embarking again.
What Real Boaters Have Had To Say About Lewmar Delta Anchors – Delta Anchor Reviews
Across various boating forums, you’ll find plenty of feedback from boaters on their Delta anchors:
“I love my little Delta. It sets every time in any bottom type I find around here. (Florida)
Last year a friend of mine was in the Bahamas when a hurricane went through. He was stern to in a slip. One of the outer pilings broke off and his stern was beating against the concrete dock. He got his Delta into another boat and managed to set it and use it to pull the boat off the dock. Later the wind went to 120 kts and the Delta held the boat off with no more damage. It was a good sand bottom and a combination chain / rope rode.”

“I use a Lewmar Delta 35 lbs. I replaced the older 22 lbs standard anchor of my Catalina 320 and couldn’t be happier. I use it with 45 feet of chain + rode. It sets at the first try in 9 out of 10 times. And I use it while singlehanding so ease of set up is important for me.”

“I have used my Delta for about 18 yrs and it always sets. I bought it because my Danforth dragged once and now I use the Delta as my primary anchor and it always works. Sand, grass, shell, rock, the Delta sets and stays set. So, now I have 3 anchors, a Delta, a Danforth and a smaller CQR. I normally use the Delta first and then either the Danforth or CQR.”
