SandShark Anchor || Frequently Asked Questions

1.      Question: Why is it so expensive?

  • Answer: Because of the strength, features, and materials.  We set out on a goal to design an anchoring system that has strength to hold up to a 30' boat in heavy waves (3-4'), is a nice asset for your boat, and is easy to store and use.  I was tired of never being able to trust my anchoring system at the shore, sandbar, or beaches.  I couldn't find any products which I felt would do an adequate job of holding the boat for a few hours without worry.  I often like to leave my boat unattended for longer periods of time and I just could not find any anchor system that I felt comfortable with.  So I designed the SandShark Anchor and it exceeded my expectations!

Just the Facts:

  • No product on the market extends over 5’ and collapse to 39” with folding handles
  • No product on the market has a 4” auger as a “pull-out preventer”
  • No product on the market has a 1” solid stainless steel shaft
  • No product on the market is recommended for long term docking
  • Very few products have 11 lbs. of stainless steel
  • The SandShark has 11 precision machined parts
  • You cannot compare the SandShark to a $50 anchor because it is like comparing apples to oranges
  • Lifetime warranty and made in the USA

The reasons above are primarily why I don't believe you can compare the price of the SandShark to anything out there. It's simply stronger, more effective, and has more features than any other product available on the market. Most anchors can only be effective if you are close by if something goes wrong, but with the SandShark, you will never have to worry if you wander away from your boat. With the included lifetime warranty, this will be the last shore and shallow water anchor you will ever purchase.

Add up all of your ineffective anchor purchases over the past few years, and it will probably exceed the cost of one SandShark Anchor!

2.      Question: How does the SandShark compare with other products?

  • Answer: See the table below to see how SandShark has the best features to keep your boat safe and secure.  We have put together a product with all of the most important features for the strongest, most effective, portable shore and shallow water anchoring system available.
