Rigging for your sailing yacht or motorboat. Having the proper rigging on board is just as indispensible as having the right anchor, fenders and cleats. Ropes are used for various purposes on board - starting from the mooring line for docking, the sheet ropes and halyards for the sails, going on to the fender lines, towing lines and even the shackles for the ropes themselves! Learn more about Rigging...
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. For this reason, our SVB rigging specialists are always ready to provide you with advice and necessary information when it comes to selecting the perfect rigging solution from our online shop.  

The mooring line - The line that every boat needs, no matter what!
Each skipper needs at least one mooring line on board. It doesn't matter whether the vessel is large or small, or if it's a sailboat or a motorboat, seeing as every boat has to be moored in the harbour or docked on the quayside at some point in time! A high-quality mooring line should have a balanced amount of elongation and a high breaking force. It should also be easy to use, as well as being weather-, UV- and abrasion-resistant. Ultimately, the mooring line must be able to withstand a significant amount of physical stress over a long period of time without any issues occuring. Depending on the length and weight of the boat, mooring lines can vary in diameter. Choose your mooring line here.

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 colors and diameters. The most important points to keep in mind are the minimum elongation (stretch) of the rope, its intended application and its holding force on board. The rope must be as slim as possible to be able to run through the blocks without catching. Choose your rigging here.

Rigging made to measure - quick and affordable!
Do you need customized cutting done for your rigging?
We turn your ideas into custom-made solutions, which we tailor to each specific rigging application. For the trades, industry, commercial shipping or offshore sailing; as a mooring line, an outboard shot or as an anchor line - no matter what type of rope you need, we can manufacture it with the optimal splicing and cable connections. We also offer custom constructions of all common materials, up to a diameter of 200 mm.

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. 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.

Splice strength vs. knot strength as a bowline hitch

Type of rope   Ø mm   Breaking force daN   Max. breaking force loss   Bowline hitch daN
Gemini X 16 6,500 -39% 4,000
Tasmania 12 2,900 -40% 1,750
Dyna-One 16 20,500 -78% 4,500

daN = deca-Newton, measured value for breaking force, 1 Newton = 102 gram-force, 1 daN = 1,020 gram-force of the old measuring system, 1kg.

We can find the correct splicing solution for every boat owner! Call us at: 0421 57290-0 or send us an email at: Our experts are happy to provide you with advice and practical help.
