Educating sailors and equipping them with the knowledge of the different choices of fibres and benefits of rope care and splicing has always been a key part of Marlow’s strategy.

And this approach is proving successful with demand for the company’s new products such as D2 Club and Excel R8 growing says Paul Honess Marlow’s leisure marine sales director.

The D2 Club is an extension to the company’s D2 range of polyester sheets and halyards, he explained. With a Dyneema SK38 core, it offers reduced weight and elongation.

Abrasion resistance

“Excel R8 is a superior dinghy line which provides outstanding grip when used in ratchet blocks, easy handing and splicing and low stretch thanks to its Dyneema SK78 core,” said Paul. “It has a cover with extreme abrasion resistance made from a Technora and polyester blend.”

In addition, Marlow’s black Dyneema covered shockcord has also received an upgrade after customer requests for a shockcord that can handle high abrasion whilst remaining slippery enough to run through multiple fairleads and blocks. 

“Introducing Dyneema in the cover ensures greater durability while meeting the demanding requirements from sailors,” concludes Paul.

As well as developing new product ranges, Marlow will be launching two key projects involving education and commitment to sustainability and the environment this Autumn.
