Kapa Marine Ropes, 12 & 24 strands

This rope series is considered the most successful mooring rope in the world! A very soft, flexible and easy to handle construction that offers safety on board.

The concept of developing this line was to produce a product made of excellent yarns, with only advantages towards all other mooring ropes; to produce a much safer and stronger product made of raw materials of the highest specifications. A big advantage of Kapa Ropes is that they enable the crew to make perfect splices in zero time. The Kapa Ropes are available in 3 qualities: Nylon (Polyamide) – Polyester – Flex.


Kapa braid on braid

A very soft and flexible double braid construction which combines high stretch and shock absorbing characteristics. The double braid construction consists of a load-sharing core and an anti-abrasion braided cover. Kapa Double braid mooring ropes are made of the highest quality raw materials and are available in 2 basic qualities: Nylon and Polyester.

• Excellent grip
• Longer service life (estimated 1:2,25)
• Very flexible and soft (wet or dry)
• Greater bearing surface
• Easy, comfortable handling
• Easy-spliced construction
• Ideal for auto winches
