We have developed sailing ropes so advanced they’re found at every level of the sailing spectrum.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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, nylon core, polyester sleeve

Polydyne is a double-braided rope that utilizes a polyester sleeve over a nylon core. Despite the dissimilar stretch characteristics of these fibers, Yale engineers have produced constructions where both fibers contribute.

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.

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.
