A mooring that creates artificial reef

The Habitat Mooring is constructed of cast concrete, with built-in tunnels. These openings provide shelters that are highly attractive to a wide range of marine life, including lobsters, crabs and a variety of fin fish.

A mooring that’s cost competitive

Each Habitat Mooring is poured with high density, fiber reinforced concrete. The hitch rod is 1.25" diameter steel rod that is easily removed for chain attachment. This eliminates the cost of a shackle, as well as a standard horseshoe staple

Field tested and proven

Habitat Moorings have been deployed in harbors all along the Maine coast, from Jonesport to Casco Bay and numerous points in between. Increasingly, mooring setters, fishermen and boat owners are selecting Habitat Moorings for their cost savings, convenience and durable holding power.

Deployed at Maine Maritime Academy

In September, 2014, the Maine Maritime Academy in Castine, Maine deployed a Low Profile HMS 8000 in Castine Harbor. The 8,000 lb. mooring will be used to anchor a barge that will serve as platform for testing components for tidal power generation.

  • HMS 8000 Low Profile mooring is hoisted onto barge at Maine Maritime Academy.
  • HMS 8000 is lowered into the waters of Smith Cove, near Castine, Maine.
  • The heavy ground chain links directly to the hitch rod.  No shackle required.
  • A secure mooring is now ready for a vessel to tie up.
