Marlow Ropes becomes INEOS Team UK supplier
Marlow Ropes has become the official supplier to INEOS Team UK, the British challenger for the 36th America’s Cup.
The British rope manufacturer will be working with the team skippered by Sir Ben Ainslie to develop bespoke, sustainable rigging solutions to race the latest generation of 75’ monohull foiling America’s Cup Class boats. Mr Ainslie’s relationship with Marlow stretches back many years from its his days of competitive sailing.
Paul Honess, leisure marine director at Marlow Ropes, commented: “We are very proud to be the official supplier to INEOS TEAM UK. Our collaboration with the America’s Cup teams in the past has contributed to the development of the Marlow Grand Prix range that is used on the wider race boat circuit at all levels.
“Developing sustainable products and bespoke rigging solutions that are tested on some of the most demanding systems found on yachts today is crucial to Marlow’s future product innovation.”
The agreement follows the companies’ technical partnership for the 35th America’s Cup cycle.
Marlow Ropes has also become an official supplier to New York-based yacht club American Magic, which will also be competing in the America’s Cup.
Marlow Ropes is a finalist in the Innovation Award category of the Ocean Awards for its Blue Ocean Dockline, a marine industry first. The eco-conscious rope is made using 100% recycled waste plastic bottles.
