Marine Components International, leading supplier to the UK leisure and commercial marine market, has been appointed as the exclusive UK marine distributor for USA manufacturer of high performance, quick setting anchors Mantus Marine.

"Mantus Marine offer the full range of anchors," explains David Ellis sales and marketing manager for Marine Components International Ltd. "We have only seen and heard good things about Mantus. They set rapidly, and offer sailors a secure anchor solution, whilst their innovative design allows them to be packed down for easy storage."

The Mantus ranges includes the Quick Connect Anchor available in three sizes and is designed for small dinghies/tenders and boats up to 25ft. Incredibly compact, it easily packs down for storage and requires no bolts, due to a spring-loaded pin that locks the shank in place and the roll bar stretches to snap in position.

The Mantus M1 Anchor is a quick-set anchor that 'DIGS LIKE NO OTHER'. This cruising and powerboat yacht anchor is designed to penetrate soft seabeds, hard or dense grassy bottoms and sets with unparalleled holding power.

The Mantus M2 Anchor is designed to fit boats with bow sprits and bow pulpits and has a weighted nose to initiate roll over to the correct setting position without the need for a roll bar and will set on all seabed surfaces including hard bottoms.

Over the last decade, tests performed by Cruising World, Practical Sailor, Sail and PMY magazines proved that new-generation type boat anchors outperform the traditional designs. The Mantus Boat Anchor has been extensively tested against the competition and will provide you with the best performance, guaranteed. No other boat anchor on the market can set as rapidly, reliably, and securely.

Greg Kutsen managing director of Mantus Marine stated that "Everyone at Mantus is very excited to be working with MCI, with their expertise in the UK market, not only in distribution, but in sales and the importing of tech products."

MCI will showcase the range of Mantus Marine anchors at Seawork Commercial Marine Show 11-13 June 2024 and at the Southampton International Boat Show 13-22 September 2024, the UK's largest watersports festival.

The firm also provides specialist import, warehousing, distribution, sales and technical support for marine equipment manufacturers including Revolve-Tec Rollable Boat Hooks, TEMO Electric Outboards, Duarry liferafts, Bennett trim tabs, Groco marine hardware, Lasdrop shaft seals, Boatasy Mooring Solutions and Dr.Shrink shrink wrapping.
