November 7, 2017 | posted by Nichola Bushnell
This November, Marlow is once again delighted to be exhibiting at METS, Amsterdam, at the 30th edition of the Marine Equipment event. Marlow shares this anniversary, as one of METS’ longest running exhibitors since the Show started in 1987 and has continued this partnership for the past 30 years, using the world-renowned platform to annually showcase its range of market-leading ropes and accessories.
This year is no exception and Marlow’s technical team have worked hard to ensure that for 2017 they will be launching the Excel R8, a new line in the highly regarded Excel Dinghy range tested by both the British and US Sailing Teams. This new product compliments the existing family of products, using a Dyneema® SK78 core with an 8 plait cover blended from Technora® and polyester. It is available in 4mm and 5mm, ideal as a halyard working well in cleats, as well as 7 and 8mm where it can be tapered and works as a high-performance sheet operating well in ratchet blocks.
Global Leisure Marine Sales Director, Paul Honess comments: “We are pleased to be launching this latest product in our Excel Dinghy range. As the name suggests, the Excel R8 excels when used in a variety of applications and its high strength, high abrasion resistance construction makes it a superior high performing rope in the excel dinghy range. Working with elite sailing teams on this, has ensured the rope is the best it can be.”
