Marlow Ropes have been a trusted technical partner to Team Malizia since 2019 and have seen Boris Herrmann and his crew achieve multiple global offshore race wins including the 2022-23 The Ocean Race  and more recently 2nd place wins in the 2024 New York Vendée and Transat CIC.  We look forward to continuing our relationship with Boris and Team Malizia as he prepares for the 2024-25 Vendée Globe starting in November 2024.

Furler 50 for the perfect blend of grip and stiffness in the furlers. 

Tech 50 for other lines onboard. 

Dyneema® whipping twine and chafe sleeve for spliced assemblies

High-strength D12 cores and customizable coatings
