16 - Mooring line
Mooring (and anchor) lines require high strength and high elongation to absorb shocks. Another important requirement is very high resistance against abrasion. Flexibility and good grip are important for managing the lines like making knots. Polyester is the recommended material for mooring ropes. It has all the above requirements. Polypropylene is sometimes also used for mooring lines. This material has poor UV resistance, poor abrasion resistance and a limited strength. It is cheaper than polyester and floats. Only if you want a floating line, otherwise we would not recommend polypropylene.
Suggested length for a mooring line is 1 to 1.5 times the boat length

Excellent UV and abrasion resistance, can withstand the most severe conditions. Easy to splice, retains softness during entire life span.
Good choice for anchoring and mooring, nice classic and traditional look.

Dockline was developed for outstanding strength, easy handling and to have a high abrasion resistance. This rope is perfect for mooring, docking but also anchoring. It has superb elongation characteristics that protects your boat from rough weather conditions. Please indicate when splicing is required.
