Ropes are indispensable on board and, just like anchors, fenders and cleats, are part your yacht's basic equipment. Ropes are used for various purposes on the boat - starting from the mooring line for docking, sheet ropes and halyards for the sails, fender lines, tow lines and even the shackles for the ropes themselves.

Rigging for Sailboats & Motorboats

- Which rope is the right rope for my boat? -

Different types of rope with different amounts of stretch are required for each individual purpose on board. Unfortunately, a universal rope doesn't exist for every purpose on board.

The mooring line - The line that every boat needs, no matter what!

What is the purpose of a mooring line?

This rope is needed to moor the boat to the berth. It doesn't matter whether the vessel is large or small, or if it's a sailboat or a motorboat, because every boat has to be moored in the harbour or docked on the quayside at some point in time. The mooring line must be able to withstand a significant amount of physical stress over a long period of time without any issues occuring. You can find out which material is best suited for mooring ropes, what length and diameter they should have and how many of them you should have on board in our mooring line guide

Halyards and sheet ropes for your yacht

Halyards and sheet ropes must have entirely different characteristics than the mooring line. When selecting the perfect sheet rope or ideal halyard, the type of boat you have and the amount of load needed to be handled are important factors to consider. A sheet rope has to perform well in the wind, with as little loss as possible! Our range of products includes: high-performance Dyneema® ropes, all-rounder ropes for sailing enthusiasts, as well as entry-level ropes at low prices, in many different colours and diameters. Find out about the requirements that ropes for halyards and sheets must meet and what to look out for when buying them in our rope guide

We also offer custom constructions of all common materials, up to a diameter of 200 mm.

The advantages of splicing

What is the purpose of rope splicing?

Splicing work cannot be replaced by any modern technology. Performed professionally to produce a durable, smooth connection between two rope ends by braiding the individual strands. This is break-proof and cannot be detached. Compared to a simple knot, splicing greatly increases the breaking load and, consequently, the life of ropes. This is why splices are not only used for boats and yachts. Lifting and lashing techniques are based on splices which support heavy loads. Similarly, hot air balloon rides would not be possible without splices. Climbing nets or other playground equipment also incorporate splicing into their designs. In winter sports, they are used for chair lifts and gondolas. Splices are often used in the private sector for roller shutters, sunshades or for towing cars.
