Do you need an anchor on a jet ski? Whilst it really depends on what you use your jetski for, we think that it is a good idea to have an anchor stored in your jetski and to always use it. It is often one of the best and most underrated items to carry as safety equipment on a jetski.
You might have seen many different anchors in the market: sand anchors, screw anchors, umbrella anchors, fluke anchors, and the list goes on…
So, what is the best type of anchor for a jetski? It depends on the conditions you are using it in.
One thing is anchoring your jetski while on the beach, and another is anchoring your jetski while fishing or surfing, for example. This will determine how heavy of an anchor you will need for your jetski, the anchor rope length you need, etc.
Jet Tech has developed three types of anchors: an inshore anchor and an offshore anchor.
The Inshore Jet tech Anchor is the best option if you’re simply looking to ride the hull up onto the sand or anchoring in depths of up to 2.5m, this anchor kit you can rely on for all your lighter conditions.
If you want to anchor your jetski in the deep offshore water with large swells, so you can go surfing or fishing for example, you would use the Jet Tech Offshore Anchor. This type of fluke anchors are great for jet skis that are anchoring in both sand and muddy areas.
