$320 - $700


  • Sets easily in a variety of bottoms including mud, sand, rock, and more

The Hinged Plow Boat Anchor (modeled after the original CQR) is one of the most popular anchors amongst bluewater cruisers. The hinged design, which can rotate over 70 degrees in any one direction, means that it is more responsive to wind and tide changes, making it less likely to unset. This Norestar Hinged Plow Anchor is constructed from solid stainless steel and will sparkle on the bow of any boat.

The hinged plow performs well in most bottom conditions including mud, rock, and grass. Each anchor includes a trip line at the back of the anchor to allow for easier breakout. It stores easily on most bow rollers (and often interchangeably with a Delta anchor of the same size).

The CQR/Plow anchor is perhaps one of the most polarizing anchors available. While some are quick to curse it, often citing poor performance in comparative testing, the fact remains that many boaters swear by it above any other anchor. Originally patented in 1933, for well over it 70 years, it has proven itself in some of the most daunting conditions.

An old adage states “there is no such thing as a small CQR”. These anchors struggle to have any performance with a weight under 26 lbs. This means that a 26 lbs Hinged Plow can only hold a boat up to approximately 26’. However, a medium sized Hinged Plow of 48 lbs can hold a boat up to 50’, comparing favourably with other anchors.

All Norestarâ„¢ Plow Anchors come with a lifetime warranty against breakage.

Customer Reviews

Great anchor, shipping not so great Review by Nathaniel
A polished stainless anchor at this price is unbelievable! It is a third of the price of the "Delta" or other American brands though at the expense of the nicer fit and finish. I did have a problem with the way it was shipped, otherwise this would have been a 5 star review. The anchor was protruding out of its box when it arrived because there was no packing material included. I liked the anchor though so didn't send it back.

good quality for the money Review by Nic
I hesitated before purchase because, though this is a very beautiful anchor, it is not genuine CQR. However, the quality is there. For the money, this is a very nice anchor and I have used it several times with no complaints.

price is right Review by justin f
This anchor's price is right in comparison to name brands, but after using it a few times I've noticed some dragging in mud bottoms on a windy day, otherwise it holds well.
