AnchorGuardian is officially launched

Safe anchoring for sailor, ship and sea

Bremgarten, Switzerland: Swiss Ocean Tech is launching AnchorGuardian®, a world first in anchor sensor technology, into the superyacht market at METSTRADE this year. This revolutionary solution enhances safety during anchoring for sailor, ship, and sea.

AnchorGuardian makes anchoring smarter and safer, providing users with data and intelligence throughout the entire anchoring process.

“After 5 years of research and development, we are in the final testing stage before bringing AnchorGuardian to the broader marine market, starting with superyachts,” said Thomas Frizlen, Managing Director & Founder of Swiss Ocean Tech. “We have dedicated considerable effort to refine both the product and technology, providing a comprehensive anchor monitoring solution that offers peace of mind to everyone onboard.”

As part of the launch, Swiss Ocean Tech is seeking 100 superyacht Captains willing to participate as INNOVATION GUARDIANS, bringing AnchorGuardian to full market maturity. While the technology is 100% mechanically robust and class certified, further real-world testing is necessary to ensure it meets customers’ needs. Participants get the opportunity to purchase AnchorGuardian with exclusive benefits, including a special discount.

“The INNOVATION GUARDIANS club is a collaborative effort between us and the captains. With their input, captains are actively contributing to the development of a safer and more reliable anchoring solution,” added Frizlen. “We are accelerating our testing to refine our solution based on real-world data and make our fully mature technology accessible worldwide.”

AnchorGuardian is a cutting-edge technology that monitors the movement and position of a ship’s anchor, delivering intelligent data to support the crew throughout the anchoring procedure. This patented solution uses sensor fusion, sophisticated algorithms, and the latest technology to provide predictions and trigger immediate alarms with sub-meter accuracy. AnchorGuardian empowers captains and crew to make proactive, informed decisions by providing essential information regarding the anchor’s state, chain condition, and the forces at play.

Swiss Ocean Tech are actively seeking partners and Superyacht Captains to join the INNOVATION GUARDIANS club. If you are interested, please contact


AnchorGuardian by Swiss Ocean Tech can be found in the SY Pavillon #11.412 and displayed in Hall 13 as part of the prestigious DAME Design Awards showcase.
