We offer a wide range of race specific rope for sailing yachts. All of our racing ropes are of a high quality and we have a large range in stock at our Rope Shop in Hamble.
We offer the largest range of Maffioli Rope in Hamble. Maffioli’s Grand Prix lines are an obvious choice for high performance racing boats and their DSK 78 and DSK 90 cores can be combined with any of their eight jacket systems to produce a high performance rope specific to a particular onboard application, be it sheets, control lines or halyards. Available in a wide range of colours, they can even be customised to your boat’s colour scheme.
For strong, low stretch and lightweight halyards and sheets, Kingfisher’s Racing Dyneema SK78 is perfect for the more serious racers amongst you. This range features a 12 strand coated SK78 core with different covers to suit the application, whether for halyards, sheets or control lines. Kingfisher Racing Dyneema is available in a variety of colours and diameters of 8 – 16mm.
Kingfisher’s Cruising Dyneema rope ranges delivers an amazing combination of lightness, durability, grip, strength and extremely low stretch. These lines are often perfect for the needs of cruiser racing yachts. This rope is available in a variety of colours and diameters of 6 – 14mm.
All of our riggers are highly skilled at rope splicing. Our technique has been honed over many years of experience and we produce high quality splices that are reliable and robust.
We can also load test splices to ensure they perform as expected to meet coding requirements.
We have a range of LOOP® and Equiplite® soft loop products available to purchase including soft shackles, hanks, connectors and blocks. We can also custom make soft loop shackles to any specific size or load requirement.
Soft Loop Shackles offer a lightweight alternative to steel shackles with the same, if not more, strength, plus, they won’t damage your boat or fittings. You can use these virtually anywhere that you would usually use a conventional stainless steel shackle. For example, to attach halyards & sheets, attach blocks to deck fittings, attach your outhaul to the mainsail and much more.
