More than half of Marlow‘s yachting range is manufactured using sustainable materials

MARLOW ROPES LTD

Blue Ocean Doublebraid is Marlow Ropes’ latest addition to its eco-conscious Blue Ocean product range manufactured from sustainable materials.

The heat-set braid-on-braid Doublebraid is made from 100% recycled waste plastic bottles and designed to offer both strength and stretch performance.

The Blue Ocean Doublebraid follows the release of Marlow’s Blue Ocean Dockline, which offers sailors an eco-alternative to standard polyester ropes.

Since the launch of the Blue Ocean Dockline in 2018, more than half of Marlow‘s yachting range is now manufactured using sustainable materials.

“It is important to us at Marlow that we take responsibility to become more sustainable and provide our customers with more rope options,” said Marlow’s leisure marine director Paul Honess. “We have worked hard over the last couple of years to eliminate plastics from our ranges, lower our carbon footprint and introduce sustainable materials.

“With half of our range now made using these sustainable materials we are getting closer to achieving our target of using 100% reliance on recycled materials by 2030.

The line is available on the reel as standard and also as spliced finished assemblies on request.
