Enough to win the America’s Cup and to participate in the Vendee Globe ☺ On a more serious note, we love sailing, are boat owners and have worked as sailing instructor and charter skipper.

Anchor monitoring measures the exact movement of the anchor, independent of the boat.

AnchorGuardian does not use GPS technology as a GPS signal does not travel through water. Our technology monitors the anchor. GPS technology monitors the boat.
Any size of vessel that requires an anchor can and should use the AnchorGuardian solution. Together we can bring more safety to anchoring for sailor, ship and sea.
AnchorGuardian can be used independent of the anchor or anchor chain type. Neither the anchor nor the chain is altered in any way.
