International growth seen in two companies

Schaefer to distribute Manson Anchors
New Zealand-based Manson Anchors has appointed Schaefer Marine of New Bedford, Mass., to distribute its product line in the United States.
Established in 1974, Manson manufactures anchors for power boats, racing yachts and superyachts. The newest Manson anchor is the Manson Boss, the company’s most technically advanced, safest anchor ever. The Boss offers significantly more holding power in most seabeds. The shank, made from high tensile, Lloyd’s Register-approved (minimum 800mpa) steel, features the new patented shackle Preventa and has been FEA optimized for strength. The weight savings are transferred into the fluke to ensure even more holding power.
