Boat Anodes

Boat anodes, also known as sacrificial anodes are essential components of boat maintenance. While some vessels are entirely wooden, many other boats feature metallic components that are likely to be submerged in water. The issue with this is that boat metals are prone to galvanic corrosion, which can be dangerous as it may result in your motor, hull, engine or propellor becoming damaged over time. 

With our range of boat anodes, you can protect essential parts of your vessel from corrosion whilst “sacrificing” the anode metals instead. Take a look below for our range of products and further information on marine anodes.

Boat Anodes For Sale

We offer boat anodes made from three metals. These are aluminium, magnesium and zinc. It is important to note that the greater the weight of the anode, the longer it is likely to last. 

Unsure about what boat anode is most suitable for your vessel? Here’s a quick guide: 

  • Aluminium Anodes:This type of marine anode can be used in brackish water (water with a higher salt content than fresh water, but less than salt water) as well as in salt water. Due to their higher electrical capacity, you can use a smaller anode without worry. 
  • Magnesium Anodes: This boat anode metal is only used in freshwater, due to the metal alloy reacting far more rapidly when exposed to seawater. With a magnesium anode in freshwater, the loss rate will be reduced significantly as a result of lower open circuit potential. 
  • Zinc Anodes: This form of boat anode is used in saltwater as the impact strength of the metal is better. 

Our boat anodes for sale include renowned brands such as Tecnoseal, MG Duff, Piranha, Volvo and many more. Depending on the particular marine part you are planning to protect, you can take a look at each of our separate metal categories. Here, you will find everything from engine anodes to propeller shaft anodes.
