ISSUE 6


introduction The ropes you see on the back cover of this brochure had already completed nearly 40,000 nautical miles of hard racing over 10 months of sailing when the picture was taken.

name of the game, but so too is safety and durability – that is why they have chosen Marlow for their past 4 round the world races and for the 2013 -14 edition too.

Durability

40,000 Miles

Marlow’s ropes have been tried and tested time and again in the toughest conditions imaginable and time and again they don’t fail to deliver….performance, safety, durability!

It goes without saying that when circumnavigating the globe in a race against 7 other yachts, the ropes on board experience the best and worst conditions that the Southern Ocean, Atlantic and Pacific have to offer!

Performance

If the ropes in this catalogue (which are available to any consumer on 6 continents around the world) are good enough to be chosen by the world’s longest round the world yacht race year after year – what products would you recommend?

The point here is that these ropes are not super expensive, custom made ropes using exotic fibres and cutting edge manufacturing techniques. They are ropes that you will find in any chandlery around the world that stocks Marlow… and they’re ready to do another 40,000 miles!

Cutting Edge

However, at Marlow we recognise that being a market leader in the global leisure marine industry is not just about great products that you can trust.

Yachting Grand prix series brochure Marlow’s Grand Prix Series has revolutionised the way high performance running rigging is specified and ordered. 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. The Grand Prix Series uses materials such as Dyneema® SK90, Zylon®, Technora®, Kevlar® and Teflon® to offer upgrades to covers and cores such as higher strength, improved abrasion resistance, better thermal properties, higher (or lower) friction and improved winch handling properties. 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. New for 2013 are covers made with Zyex® and standing rigging products made with Zero Creep Dyneema® DM20. Product Code DG****

ProDrive – TORSIONAL FURLING CABLE

Para Aramid Core | Para-Aramid Torsion Jacket |

Polyester Cover Marlow has developed a torsion rope for use on top down furlers. Like most headsail furlers, the furling is controlled by the furler drum at the bottom of the sail. The turning force is transmitted through the length of the ProDrive cable to turn the swivel which is connected to the head of the sail. The tack of the sail is connected to a freely floating point on the drum of the furling unit. The turning force acting at the top of the sail only, causes the head of the sail to furl first and ensures the sail furls down the cable neatly. The unique requirements of top down furling forced the development of a unique rope construction. Parallel aramid core, tightly braided aramid jacket with a polyester cover ensures ProDrive offers the best torsional stiffness on the market.

Mooring Marlow took a good look at why mooring lines usually fail – abrasion through wear or breakage from shock loads. Mooring lines are often replaced due to the cover being worn out or the rope looking scruffy or it’s become too hand to handle effectively. New Marina Grande dock line has been specifically engineered using Marlow’s Opti-Twist yarn to give outstanding abrasion and shock absorbing properties. With a hardwearing 24plait cover and manufactured using 100% polyester, Marina Grande maintains an outstanding durable presentation without shrinkage or loss of strength. New
