Line only - Cruising

At Bosun Yacht Services we cater to all types of sailors. Whether you’re a casual weekend cruiser or a competitive club racer, we have the running rigging replacement you need. Your typical cruising sailing rope is constructed from double braid polyester. At Bosun Yacht Services, we use Southern Ropes’ YachtMaster XS Braid, because of its durable double braid polyester construction and high level of performance for all our cruising sailboat halyards, sheets and lines. Please click on the rope diameter you need for your sailing halyard, line or sheet and you will then be able to select the appropriate length that you require. Not all of our yacht rope for sale is available on our online store, so if you do not see the rope you’re looking for please complete a quote request form or send us an email and let us know what you’re looking for.

 
If you do not know the length of line you need, click on 'Line lengths' found in the 'Build your halyard' category to find your boat and to find the length of line you need. The below chart will help you select what diameter line from the length of your boat.
