At Anchor Marine we specialise for those sailing dinghies and smaller yachts. Our many years of expertise will guide you with repairs, safety, performance gear, rope, splicing, re-fits and re-rigs.
After over 60 years at Sandringham, Anchor Marine has scaled to online only. Sadly we find a diminished level of experience in our industry now, so our small team can use the time to utilise our craft, experience and skill.
Online will provide important options to protect you and your dinghy or smaller yacht on the water for maximizing performance and ensuring safety. Our aim is only to provide affordable, durable, reliable, quality fittings, fixtures, and ropes for your boat from the best manufacturers both here in Australia and from around the world.
We also offer the knowledge with requirements for many of the older sailing classes that are currently re-gaining in popularity.
Sailing rope, also known as sailing line or yacht rope, refers to the various types of ropes and lines used in sailing for a variety of purposes. These ropes are made from different materials and are designed to handle specific tasks on a sailboat.
We can assist you with selection as different types of rope are used for specific applications based on their properties so it is important to get the best option for the task.

We believe that safety on the water is the 1st thing that must be considered. Your skill must be assessed and therefore your risk needs to be determined.
Kitting yourself and your boat with the correct safety gear will provide more assurance to your time on the water.
Sailing hardware can be made up of simple or advanced solutions to make your lines and sails work with adeptness and mastery. From a simple saddle and ring to carbon fiber blocks, there is a solution for all. Minimizing the weight and keeping things compact and efficient is the aim. The use of durable and strong lines has allowed for integrated fittings and hardware to improve efficiency and performance.
Care / Repair
Keeping your dinghy or smaller yacht in top condition does require commitment. Things go really wrong really quickly when on the water so maintainence is essential.
Regular exposure to the environment and the water will take its toll on your vessel’s surface, its fittings, fixtures, and sails.
We recommend regular cleaning and polishing, checking for potential fail or fault points and repairing or replacing before things go wrong.
