Para-Tech Sea Anchor - 32 foot Diameter - PTS32

"A Sea-Anchor belongs there, right next to your life raft, EPIRB and survival suit: USE IT, as your FIRST line of defense in heavy weather, SO YOU WON'T HAVE TO USE YOUR life raft, EPIRB or survival suit..."

Para-tech Sea Anchors from Para-Tech Engineering Co.

Commercial fisherman have been using parachutes at sea for decades. Now, PARA-TECH has taken a good idea and improved upon the design and construction of these tried and tested sea anchors.

Para-tech Sea Anchors from Para-Tech Engineering Co. The offshore Sea Anchor.

PARA-TECH Sea-Anchors are designed with the boater in mind. Imagine you are at sea facing a FORCE-10 storm with 20 foot seas and you are 500 miles from a safe harbor. Right off your starboard beam is a MOORING BUOY...you tie up to the buoy and ride out the storm. Such an experience is yours with a PARA-TECH Sea-Anchor as part of your heavy weather experience.

What's The Right Size For Your Boat?


Sizing is determined by the type, length and weight of your boat. Sailboats with full keels should choose a sea-anchor that’s big enough to overcome the lateral resistance of that keel. Powered vessels with higher windage and greater displacement may prefer to go one size larger than suggested. The accepted rule of thumb has been as follows: “When in doubt, choose a bigger chute.” As a general guideline refer to the following chart:

Specifications & Sizing Guidelines


Sizing is first based on length overall with weight, keel configuration and windage taken into account next. Note that generally the greater windage of power boats equals the greater draft (wetted surface) of sailing craft, hence the same size Sea Anchor. When in doubt go to the larger size. GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS are as follows:
