Louay Habib/FAST40+Southern Ropes supplies several FAST40+ boats and is honoured to become a supporter of the class. Southern Ropes works with the sailors to provide tailor made ropes and fast40+ boats are a prime example of that requirement.

 Providing the right solution increases performance and speed on the race course. Rope performance is important on the fast and technical FAST40+ fleet. Having the right rope, in the right place, for the right job, is key for overall results. Southern Ropes holds a wide range of stock to assist with choice of providing the correct rope for the appropriate application.

Southern Ropes is based at the top of the Hamble River in Park Gate. This allows for the same day delivery to the FAST40+ Class, which is important during a busy season. Southern Ropes looks forward to being more involved with the FAST40+ Class during the 2017 season.

 We have delivered our first Tug Rope to the Nordic Tug market. The brand new Tug arrived on Monday to Helsingborg harbour and this evening it goes into production working in the area of Öresund (world’s most trafficked sound)!

Southern Ropes supplied a 52mm Super Tug Line that was delivered on Monday afternoon ready to be used on the new Tug. The Line had a 48mm HMPE core with a Nylon cover with a breakload of 181 Tons with soft protected eyes in each end.

Customers Comment: ‘You have all done a great work getting the delivery on time! Thank you once again!’

One of the biggest lines that Southern Ropes specializes in is their Tug, Towing, Winch & Mooring Lines. High performance towing at sea, lifting or winching lines with extremely high strength to weight ratio this has become a popular option. These are manufactured to both custom and standard specifications. HMPE/ Dyneema® Fibre rope is a wire replacement rope, with less friction and drag in the water. HMPE / Dyneema® Fibre tow lines or mooring lines are easier to handle and can be made in long lengths with no joins. The rope is polyurethane coated which reduces snagging and prolongs the longevity of the rope. The outer surface of these ropes is soft and the ropes will not damage the tug boat or the vessel it is being used on. These ropes are easy to deploy as they are light and easy to handle. This then speeds up the operation saving time and money.
