Product Description

Hempex® is a strong but lightweight synthetic rope with the appearance and feel of a natural hemp rope.  Hempex® floats and is soft to the touch.

Manufactured by Langman Ropes in Holland, Hempex® has been developed with enhanced UV properties and compares favourably with other polypropylene ropes in this regard.

This particular rope is constructed from either 3 strands or 4 strands (depending on the diameter) and is available in diameters from 4mm through to 48mm.  Larger diameters are available by special request.  Hempex® rope is suitable for sheets, halyards and as bolt rope on sailing boats.  Hempex® is also ideal for outdoor landscaping and decorative applications where weather or sun does not permit natural hemp to be used.

Sold by the metre or on spools of 220 metres. View quantity discounts for purchases of 50m or more.

Hempex® is a registered trademark of Langman Ropes of the Netherlands.

  1. very good 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2017

    Hempex has proved excellent for traditional boat work, grommets splicing etc holding it's lay well when single strands are unraveled
    If it lives up to it's uv and strength promise on the boat it will be near perfect as it certainley looks the part as well


  2. Classic and surprisingly cheap 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2016

    When it came time to renew the mooring retrieval line for our boat I thought of good old silver rope. Low cost, but unfriendly to handle and not sexy on a classic boat.
    So why not indulge in some decent traditional looking cordage that actually says we care! I shot down to Classic boat supplies and their prompt and friendly service brightened my day.
    The cost was very reasonable and I now have very serviceable rope that also looks great.


  3. Repeat Purchase, Very Happy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Aug 2016

    Have used two thicknesses of Hempex for boats I've built and it's perfect - looks natural, tough & won't rot, feels soft on the hands. Classic Boat Supplies is so helpful with service and speedy with delivery, even halfway 'round the world (Massachusetts). Won't hesitate to repeat purchases again.

  7. Hempex Fenders 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th May 2014

    I bought this product to make fenders for a traditional putt putt boat. I've been very pleased with the soft feel and traditional hemp look of the product. Everything it is advertised to be.
