POSH Polyester Rope - 3 Strand Beige (per metre)

(5 reviews) Write a Review


"POSH" polyester rope is a 3-strand (or 4-strand in the larger diameters - see below) twisted rope made from spun polyester.  Spun polyester has a soft furry feel making "POSH" ideal as a traditional sheet rope on old classic boats.  Being pre-stretched, "POSH" also makes a good halyard rope as it has very low elongation properties (only 2% stretch at 20% of breaking load).

As a polyester rope, "POSH" has excellent resistance to ultra-violet light.  The 3mm and 4mm POSH is great for whipping on larger ropes, or for lacing sails, etc.

"POSH" polyester sailing rope is manufactured by Langman Ropes in The Netherlands.

"POSH" is sold by the metre or on spools of 220 metres. View quantity discounts for purchases of 50m or more.

Note that diameters of 14mm and larger are available by special order. 10-12 week leadtimes may apply.

Some POSH sizes are also available in Navy Blue, Brown and Black.

    Best 'classic' new rope

    This is great rope for classic boats. Looks right but has all the characteristics and strength of current rope technologies. Looks authentic and nice and soft.

    I purchased six mm POSH rope for the sheet for the small mizzen on my 17 ft cat yawl. Already had 10 mm POSH for the mainsheets, so I knew that I liked the stuff. POSH looks authentic and is nice and soft to handle. I'd recommend it.
