Our History

IMAGE-aboutusKingston Anchors began in the wake of the 1976 Sum­mer Olympics. The games were awarded to Montréal, but the waters off Kingston were deemed best for the sailing events, so the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour was constructed initiating a sailing boom. Ed Peterson saw the opportunity to capture both the local sailing market and the need for high-quality anchors through­out North America. With remarkable foresight and considerable business acumen, Kingston Anchors immediately found itself to be a signifi­cant player in the marketplace.

Kingston Anchors is located in the historic city of Kingston, Ontario, just minutes off Highway 401. This convenient location offers easy access to the metropolitan centres of Toronto, Montréal, Ottawa as well as the border with the U.S.A.
