Blue Ocean® Doublebraid is Marlow Ropes' latest addition to the eco-conscious Blue Ocean® product range which is manufactured from sustainable materials. The heat-set braid-on-braid Doublebraid is made from 100% recycled waste plastic bottles and offers industry leading strength and stretch performance.

The Blue Ocean® Doublebraid follows the release of the award-winning Blue Ocean® Dockline, which has achieved global recognition within the marine industry and offers sailors an eco-alternative to standard polyester ropes. Since the launch of the Blue Ocean Dockline in 2018, over half of Marlow's yachting range is now manufactured using sustainable materials.

Used for a variety of on-board applications, this popular line is available on the reel as standard and also as spliced finished assemblies on request. It offers flexibility and easy handling for all sailors, and now with the reassurance of being sustainably manufactured. The addition of this new product demonstrates Marlow's on-going commitment to sustainable manufacturing by reducing and eliminating their negative environmental impact through the introduction of their Blue Ocean® product range and company-wide Blue Ocean® initiatives which focus on reducing energy consumption, waste and the company’s carbon footprint.

“It is important to us at Marlow that we take responsibility to become more sustainable and provide our customers with more rope options. We have worked hard over the last couple of years to eliminate plastics from our ranges, lower our carbon footprint and introduce sustainable materials. - With half of our range now made using these sustainable materials we are getting closer to achieving our target of using 100% reliance on recycled materials by 2030 – Leisure Marine Director, Paul Honess.

Available from your local Marlow stockist from October.
