15ton main anchor & stern anchor of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) capital ship YAMATO. Built at Kure shipyard, Hiroshima Japan and launched in 1940, YAMATO weighed over 70,000 tons and needed a massive anchor to hold her steady in rough seas. The 15 ton main anchor was over 5 metres in length and was mounted at the bow. A smaller 3 metre anchor was mounted at the stern. A replica main anchor is installed in Kure City Central Park.
Main anchor height 32.3cm, Stern anchor height 18.6cm
