Quickline, an importer and distributor of marine gear and accessories, announced that it received type approval certification of its complete Ultra Anchor product line from the American Bureau of Shipping.

Quickline’s Ultra Anchors were awarded the certification of design assessment for Stainless Steel Superior Holding Power for restricted service. The company received its first SHP certificate in early 2011 after testing of its UA 45-99 (100-pound anchor); the new certification encompasses the entire Ultra Anchor product line from 11 to 792 pounds, with certification for larger Ultra Anchors available on a case-by-case basis.

“Our customers have long known that the Ultra Anchor is the best anchor available and rely on it to ensure a quick, strong deep set,” company president Randy Boelsems said in a statement. “The Superior Holding Power designation awarded our Ultra Anchor provides third-party reinforcement to what they already know and gives those interested in buying an anchor the peace of mind that the Ultra Anchor is the best option available.”
