About Sensible Yacht Cordage

We pride our business on our personalized service to our customers. We will take the time to talk to you about your boat, your needs, and how to best accomplish your goals. Your satisfaction with our product and your enjoyment of your boat with your new lines is our primary goal.

Having sailed and cruised in many parts of the world, we have learned the importance of quality in the yacht, the rigging, and the equipment to keep us safe and reaching our destination. Proper preparation is essential to your safely and enjoyment. When at sea, you are relying on your equipment and yourself, not the marine store down the road. On long crossing, your lines are subjected to constant chafing and exposure to the elements, conditions in which inadequate lines may stretch, break, and loose their shape, rendering them ineffective.

As a racer, you are looking for performance. You want lines that are exceptionally strong, that have minimal elongation, and can withstand the constant exposure to the sun and the elements. When racing, you are constantly putting your lines to the test, asking for the most from your lines, stressing them constantly while expecting them to perform.

While sailing in Europe, we learned of very high quality, high tech ropes manufactured by Lanex a.s. Corporation. Lanex ropes are manufactured utilizing sophisticated technologies with extensive R&D and demanding production and inspection schedule. In talking to sailors who were using Lanex lines, it was obvious that the lines were performing exceptionally well. The Lanex yachting lines have sailed and been tested in the Arctic, the Antarctic, the Pacific and Europe, the Selma-Antarctica-Endurance Test, the CANY Offshore Cup, and others.

The Lanex lines are well known in Europe, and a most popular brand from the Baltic to the Med. Since these high quality lines were not yet available in the US, we contacted Lanex Corp about bringing them to the US, and we secured exclusive distributorship for their line of yachting ropes. Sensible Yacht Cordage is now pleased to make these lines available to the US market of yachtsmen and sailors. As experienced cruisers and racers, we can attest to the exceptional quality and value of the Lanex lines.
