Cruising

Are you cruiser and do you want advice for ropes for your sailboat? Click on the drawing or in the list which rope you want to replace for your yacht. Our rope advice guide then provides a line advice of products and materials that best suit your use. For recreational sailors Premiumropes sells high-quality yachting ropes at very competitive prices. Before you order new ropes, make sure the length and diameter match the situation on board. The line diameter should fit with your stoppers, cleats and blocks or your sailing yacht. Measure the diameter of your current ropes with, for example, a caliper. Leave your old halyard in your mast until the new one arrives. You connect the old and new by melting or with a hoist, then you pull the whole in one go. We can also make a Flemish eye with which you can draw the halyard through the mast. We advise recreational sailors to choose halyards and sheets with a core of polyester, Dyneema® SK38 or Stirotex fibres. It depends on how fanatically you sail and of course how much money you want to spend on your yacht. For a genoa sheet it is important that the rope has as little stretch as possible. With a mainsheet, this is less critical, because it is likely rigged with a purchase system on your boat. Are your halyards rigged through the mast? We can splice a thin lead of Dyneema® or wire rope to your genoa or mainsail halyards. Of course we make an eye-splice to your halyards or sheets if you like. And if you want a stainless steel shackle, order it together with the halyard. You can also send your old shackles and have them spliced to your new ropes. More sustainable! Do not forget to make a whipping at the end of the halyards, sheets and moorings. We can also do that for you. Are you a blue water sailor or preparing for a long passage? Then it might be a good idea to splice an extra Dyneema® chafing cover over the end of your halyards. That way they will not wear so quickly through the blocks.
