Marlow Ropes Definitve Rope Guide Brochure, Issue 6


The Grand Prix Series uses the highest performance materials such as Dyneema ® SK99, Zylon ® , Technora ® , Kevlar ® Teflon ® and Zyex ® . These materials offer attributes to covers and cores such as higher strength, improved abrasion resistance, better thermal properties, higher (or lower) friction and improved winch handling properties. Finally, a wide variety of customisations including core inserts, tapered ropes and hoist markers are available along with rigging extras such as chafe cover and ArmourCoat. The reason Marlow’s Grand Prix Series ropes work so well and are so respected is that we listen to the feedback and needs of our Grand Prix Riggers and their customers – the race boat captains and crews. When combined with our attention to detail and passion for excellence, Marlow’s Grand Prix Series ropes deliver reliable, race winning performance.

In the Maxi72 class, development is key to success and you have to constantly push forward in all areas. Running rigging is often over looked and the possible gains are underestimated. Working with Marlow from the beginning of the project, we can trust the quality of the product and rely on their great technical expertise and commitment to make even the shortest time frame work. It’s great to have a strong partner in Marlow to tackle your challenges. MICHAEL MÜLLER: MÜLLER SAILING CONSULTING SERVICE Marlow’s Grand Prix Series has revolutionised the way high performance running rigging is specified and ordered. Imitated by many, but matched by none, the Grand Prix Series was developed and is continuously improved through our long experience with high performance race teams and feedback from our global network of specialist Grand Prix Riggers.
