I would just get the inexpensive 6 kg Chinese Delta knockoff. It's effective on just about any surface. It's not too bad at all for storage once you've tucked your spooled anchor rope within in. Here is a picture of it with the rope strapped within the bow storage box on my SIB. It still leaves lots of space within the box for other essentials.
Other than that there is a neat folding anchor called a 'box anchor' which is about 3 x the price of the Delta knockoff (about the same price as a real Delta). I read mixed reviews of it's effectiveness though.
