Testimonials


From Sensible Yacht Cordage customer Jan-Paul W:

"As a solo sailor, I often reflect on how this is really not solo at all — nothing like it. What we do as solo sailors vitally depends on the efforts, attention and expertise of so many other people,— countless people, when you think about it —  that to say we are sailing solo is a conceit. We are really the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. I want to thank you for the time, effort, attention, insights and courtesy that you have put forward in optimizing the experience of a total stranger who has chanced to cross your path, for making my voyage safer, and providing lines that I can have confidence in when it matters. As you know, the lines you have recommended will be in play when conditions are most challenging, and in that manner, your assistance and advice is of the first importance. "

From Sensible Yacht Cordage customer RB:

"Your customer service has been so good, at this point I would not even consider buying my lines from anyone else.    At the end of the day, I sail because it brings me joy, and it is a pleasure to do business with your company. "

From Sensible Yacht Cordage customer DC:

"I had the pleasure of working with Jan Trousilek at Sensible Yacht Cordage recently to solve a problem with the running rigging on my sailboat. While I could have purchased rope from a number of places, including the web, Jan spent a considerable amount of time with me discussing the problem I was trying to solve. His experience and good advice was well worth the cost of premium rope.  We worked together in his shop to test hardware and ultimately reconfigure a 2:1 purchase halyard system.  Relationship is as important to me as the quality of product.  I would recommend Sensible Yacht Cordage to any Sailor or Climber who is looking for an excellent product and expert service." 

From Ian Anderson, LANEX ROPES AUSTRALIA, member of Swan River Etchells Fleet in West Australia:

"In solid swell and chop very confident to be using LANEX D-F1 on both jib down haul and kicker. Lines only 4 mm, however [bearing] some 1700 DaN b/load."

 

From Ivica Bubla, Base Manager & CEO, Dalmatia Charter, Croatia

"We have been using yachting ropes on our boats for several years and we are very satisfied with them just like our clients -- not only casual yachters, but also professional racers."

 

From Josef Bohac and Jan Kara, seafarers taking part in the first transatlantic raft voyage, Czech Republic:

"There are only two types of ropes on our raft, steel ropes and those made by LANEX. For our first voyage across the Atlantic Ocean from continent to continent, we decided to have trust in Czech companies only. So we use ropes made by LANEX to stretch our cabin tight, to hoist sails, to fasten beams, and to anchor floorboards. Material is very important for us, it must resist harsh conditions we can encounter during the long voyage across the ocean. If LANEX survives, then also we reach Mexico."

 

From Martin Blagoev, President of the Czech Offshore Yachting Association:

"My experience of ropes made by Lanex is excellent. I know they offer very good performance and durability in proportion to their price and every user can rely on them, which is important at sea. Also the possibility to consult the suitability of this or that rope for a particular purpose with people from Lanex is great and the readiness of "those from Lanex" to help is nice. I know that many yachters, friends of mine, make use of services provided by Lanex with pleasure. And so, when everything functions as it should, I will always be glad to support a Czeck company like Lanex."

 

From Pavel Jerabek, Captain of Lavinia, Czech Republic:

"Starting in April 2011, I had been spending 772 days at sea to circle the globe with my Lavinia and ropes made by Lanex. The ropes were a fully natural part of my boat during the entire voyage, they never disappointed me, they supported me in hard situations which were not few during the voyage."

 

From Ship La Grace / Capitan Josef Dvorský, 2nd place Tall ship race 2015:
“La Grace is not only a museum and film ship with the only aim of looking good – it must do the distance between three continents every year, therefore our demands upon the strength and durability of ropes are very great. Oldtimer is exactly the right choice for our replica of the period ship. Nobody wants to believe us that it is not a natural rope.”

 

From Team Winergy, NED 355, Holland:
“Lanex provided us with carefully selected ropes, helping us perform and win the World Championships 2011! Especially the BORA rope with its unique construction was the perfect solution for our main sheet and trimlines. It is extremely supple, no initial stretch and comes in well defined colors.“
