Anchoring / Mooring

Secure your vessels with Yale Cordage lines that have undergone rigorous real-life testing to provide longevity in the field and meet your operational demands.

Cruising Rope

When you're at sea, you put a lot of faith in the integrity of your gear. That's why we design all our ropes to outperform even the highest expectations. So when you rig your pride and joy with Yale ropes, take heart. We've thought of everything.

Sailboat Racing

When most people look at a racing sailboat, they see speed, grace and teamwork. At Yale, we see a living laboratory, where rope is exposed to dynamics rarely, if ever, experienced in other applications. That's why we test our sailboat racing ropes both in our labs and at sea, where reliable performance can define the difference between victory and everything else.

At Yale Cordage, sailing is more than a pastime. It’s an obsession. We think about marine rope. We talk about marine rope. And every single day of the year, we work to develop the best, most advanced ropes in the industry. Saling ropes so advanced they’re found at every level of the sailing spectrum — from pond-skimming dinghies to globe-circumnavigating trimarans — and everywhere in between.

Naturally, our reputation doesn’t come by chance. It comes from years of careful experimentation with cutting-edge fibers like Kevlar, Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, Vectran and Zylon PBO to produce lightweight, high-performance marine and sailing ropes for specialty applications. It comes from real-world testing under mother nature’s most challenging weather conditions. And most importantly, it comes from years of feedback from satisfied customers — the very same customers who’ve made Yale the most trusted name in marine and sailing rope for more than 50 years.


​Lugger Line

12-strand single braid, copolymer olefins

Lugger Line is a 12-strand single braid of copolymer olefins. Polypropylene and high-density polyethylene are coextruded to form the fiber. Upon cooling, the molten polyethylene and polypropylene material coalesce into a unique fiber with tenacity comparable to polyester but without the friction associated with polypropylene filament.

Maxi-Moor II

Double braid, high-tenacity PET fiber

Maxi-Moor II double-braided rope is improved from our original polyster/nylon construction with twice the high-tenacity PET fiber, so it maintains integrity for up to eight times more loading cycles.

Nylon Brait

8-strand plaited, nylon

Nylon Brait combines braiding technology with plaited rope optimizing the best of both rope styles. Nylon Brait’s most outstanding feature is its high energy absorption, which comes from a combination of the very long yarn path and stranditure developed especially to maximize energy absorption.

Double braid, Vectran LCP core, polyester sleeve

Crystalyne is a double-braided rope constructed with an inner load-bearing core of Vectran Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) and has a tough polyester outer sleeve. LCP is more tolerant of bending than other high-modulus fibers and is not as affected by overloading.

12-strand single braid, UHMWPE from DSM protective materials

Maxibraid is a 12-strand single-braid rope constructed from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene UHMWPE fiber. UHMWPE has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber, and it floats. The integral Maxijacket High Performance coating firms the construction, increases wear life and helps keep contaminants out of the rope.

Maxibraid Plus

Double braid, UHMWPE core from DSM protective materials, polyester sleeve

Maxibraid Plus is a double-braided rope constructed of an inner load-bearing core of Ultra High Weight Molecular Polyethylene (UHMWPE). The polyester outer sleeve is slightly thicker than Ultrex Plus, which would provide more abrasion resistance in high-wear applications.

12-strand single braid, UHMWPE from DSM protective materials

Ultrex is a 12-strand single braid of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber from DSM Protective Materials and enhanced with Yale’s Maxijacket High Performance coating, which supplies superior abrasion resistance. Ultrex's braid angles and twist level are designed to optimize break strength and keep stretch low.

Ultrex Plus

Double braid, Dyneema® SK78 core and polyester jacket

Ultrex Plus is a double braid constructed of an inner load baring core of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), treated with Maxijacket coating for enhanced toughness. Sleeved with high-tenacity polyester, Ultrex Plus is spliceable, using conventional high-modulus splice techniques or the new Yale tuck splice, which shortens the bury portion and minimizes the length of the larger diameter associated with a bury-type splice.

12-strand single braid, Vectran LCP

Vectrus is a single-braid rope of 100% Vectran™ LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) and is always treated with Yale’s Maxijacket coating to increase abrasion resistance and enhance the fibers' UV resistance. LCP is more tolerant of tighter bending radii in terminations than other high-modulus fibers.

Yellow Jacket 12

12-strand single braid, bio-based SK75 Dyneema fiber

Yellow Jacket 12 is a 12-strand single braid of bio-based Dyneema® SK75 UHMPE fiber enhanced with Yale's Maxijacket High Performance Coating. The specific color pattern allows for easier identification of twisting in the rope, which can lead to a decrease in its working strength. Built tough and designed for enhanced strength to meet the rugged demands of your application, Yellow Jacket 12 is also fully Berry Compliant; both the fiber and the finished rope are proudly made in the USA. For technical information, please download the Yellow Jacket 12 product data sheet.
