High holding power anchor has a large holding power to weight ratio, so it is called a high holding power anchor. The gripping force is more than two times larger than the ordinary stockless anchor of the same weight. There are Martrosov anchor, Danforth Anchor, Schdringer anchor, Staccato anchor, etc.
It is combined with the advantages of a stocked anchor and a stockless anchor. Because of the large gnawing soil of the anchor fluke and the large gripping force, it is suitable for the sandy or soft water bottom. The commonly used HHP anchors are the Martrosov anchor and Danforth anchor which is characterized by the deep gnawing soil, high stability, with large anchor grip. But the strength of the anchor fluke is weak and easy to deform.
