Cruiser and Yacht Halyards

Time to replace those halyards on your cruiser or yacht?

The winter break (for most) gives the perfect opportunity to get those halyards on your cruiser or yacht replaced.

Sailing Chandlery have a good range of polyester and dyneema ropes available which are suitable to be used as cruiser or yacht halyards.

Polyester Rope Options

By far one of the most popular yacht ropes is braid on braid polyester rope.

Braid on braid rope is perfect for mainsheets, jib sheets, control lines and halyards on larger boats including cruisers and yachts. It is good on the hands and is easy to splice.

Sailing Chandlery have this type of rope in stock from 6mm through to 12mm diameters.

Dyneema Rope Options

Sailing Chandlery have a massive range of dyneema ropes in stock, everything from 1mm through to 8mm. We can also source larger diameters for you and would be happy to provide a quote.

Dyneema® is an UHMwPE (Ultra High Molecular weight Polyethylene) fibre developed by DSM in the Netherlands little over 20 years ago. An ingredient material in many of our ropes, Dyneema® is light weight and renowned as "The World's Strongest FibreTM". So what makes Dyneema® so special?

  • High Strength
  • Light Weight
  • Water resistant
  • Chemical resistance
  • UV Resistant

It's popular across all types of sailing, especially in racing yachts.

Here's a selection of our most popular dyneema products for cruiser and yacht halyards:
