Ancor Primary Wire by the Foot -

Sophisticated marine electronics and instruments only operate at peak potential when supplied with power at the right voltage, and that necessitates high-quality wire. Ordinary automotive-type wire can suffer a loss of conductivity, caused by corrosion and/or vibration, after a few months in the marine environment. Corrosion takes place when the wire’s jacket and insulation are compromised by water intrusion, which rapidly corrodes the copper conductor. Ancor wire is rated for oily and wet environments because its jacket is impervious to those conditions.

Each strand of Ancor wire has a tin coating for extra corrosion resistance (note the “silver” look to Ancor wire when you strip it). Vibration is always present on a boat, and will quickly fatigue and crack coarsely-stranded wire. Ancor wire is Type 3 stranded, meaning that it has 5-10 times more copper strands than Type 2 wire, so it’s more flexible and fatigue-resistant. Ancor wire is Marine UL-listed, and meets the highest ABYC standards for AC or DC use. Finally, Ancor wire is based on AWG (American Wire Gauge) wire sizes, which are 6-12% larger than SAE gauge wire, so you get more current-carrying ability than from similar SAE wire.

Ancor Wire

This stuff is great. I needed to transfer 12v power from the rear of the boat to the console and this stuff really worked! Its almost magical the way the electrical voltage passes thru this stuff like it was made to do so. I was transferring the voltage in a small bucket prior to this and it was a compete hassle to keep my radio going. I don't know how I did without this.

Quality Wire

Used this product to re-wire a car trailer. Purchased all of the needed colors for easy i.d. and with the high quality of this product it should be the last time it will need to be done.

Great wire

Great wire. Flexible, sturdy, strips well, exposed "wire" doesn't fray, easy to twist.

Would recommend for any primary wire application.
