mooring rope with leather protectionDouble braided mooring lines.

The double braid construction is by far most popular for superyachts. This construction creates great flexibility on the rope which ensures great handling on board. The rope has less tendency to “kink” and therefore is easier to ease or to stow in the boat.

The abrasion resistance is great because of the large surface the 32 plaits create. Specially if using our leather finishing or our Chafe-pro protection systems.
The amount of twist in the yarn is important for the characteristics of the rope. Lots of twist means very good resistance agaist abrasion, but less flexible.  The yarns in the core need different twist compared to the ones in the cover.
At More Marine we carefully select and test the best specifications for the best Mooring ropes and so the best protection for your yacht!

If you require 3-strand, 8-strand or 12-strand please send us an email with your requirements.

Polyester dockline:

Our double braided mooring lines are made with a 32-plait braided cover. The 32 plaits create a soft and flexible rope. Aesthetically it is being known as the best looking mooring line.
The core is twisted and woven for great breaking strength, but also has good stretch.
Polyester is by far the most sold mooring line at the moment. Polyester has a great abrasion resistance, stays flexible and has a good breaking strength.
We offer the M32 of M-ropes and Geotwin of Gleistein. Both products are similar in construction and quality with only small differences.

Dyneema dockline:

Dyneema is a great material for mooring lines; it is lightweight (it floats), strong, has good abrasion resistance, and is reliable. More superyachts are choosing nowadays for Dyneema or Spectra as a core material in the mooring ropes.
By using Dyneema mooring lines you can have a smaller diameter and so easier handling. We advise using a polyester cover to protect the rope agains abrasion. Also dyneema is very slippery, and therefore tends to slip.
We offer  Gleistein Megatwin Dyneema and M-ropes dyneema dockline. Both with 12-strand core and 24-plait cover.
When using dyneema mooring ropes we strongly recommend a polyester or nylon stretcher. Contact us for more advise.

Splicing and protection:

We supply all our mooring ropes including finishing as required by the yacht. Standard finishing are a 1,5mtr loop, partly protected with leather and the other side whipped.
Custom finishing like color-coded whipping, SS thimbles, custom leather etc. are no problem for us. Just let us know your requirements.
We also supply Chafe-Pro protection in the eye or as separate removable anti-chafe gear.

Materials;

We basically work with 3 different materials for the mooring lines; Nylon, Polyester and Dyneema. The Nylon ropes have been very successful and popular in the past years. Specially the good stretch characteristics of nylon made it a great mooring rope.
The Polyester lines are most popular nowadays. Prices of polyester have dropped compared to Nylon, and the abrasion is much better. Also polyester mooring lines will stay more flexible during the years.
Dyneema mooring lines are upcoming. The huge benefits of Dyneema are the high breaking strength, and low weight. Using dyneema as a dockline result in smaller diameters, less space, and much lighter. The disadvantage of dyneema obviously is the low (almost no) stretch. Therefore we work with polyester stretcher loops which need to be attached between the dock and the dyneema rope in order to provide good stretch into the system.
We are using Gleistein Megatwin dyneema with or without polyester cover, depending on the customer wishes.

Mooring Lines MY Maridome

We’ve replaced our mooring lines with the M-ropes polyester in 36mm.
The splicing looks good, and leather finishing and NFC chips are great.
Communications and shipment to Barcelona were easy and fast with More Marine. They have great experience with mooring lines and advised us the proper product for our yacht.

M-ropes mooring line

We use the M-ropes mooring lines from More Marine in both polyester and dyneema. The deliveries were nice on time and we are excited about their service and knowledge.
When we damaged some covers in a storm they were able to repair and re-splice the ropes in short time.
Good communication and fast response makes it easy to work with them.

32mm dyneema mooring lines

We recently purchased some 32mm dyneema mooring lines with More Marine. It saves a lot in terms of weight and boat handling and they look great!
More Marine advised us in the right way including chafe-pro protection and the use of stretchers as a shock absorber

M32, polyester mooring lines

We have been using the M32 polyester mooring lines for a while now and they still look great. More Marine supplied in time and had a good service. We haven’t used the NFC tags yet but the idea is great to be able to keep track of the mooring lines in the future
