Pearling ropes and floats

As a supplier of premium quality ropes to the pearling industry for over 20 years, we understand the need for ropes that last under the toughest conditions.  Whether you require long lines, mooring lines, droppers, or rope handles on panels, we can assist you.  We also offer significant savings on splicing and end seals, and can make specific lengths to order, with rope diameters from 3 to 48mm.

Our ropes are constructed from premium quality UV treated polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polyester.  Ropes can be made as either three-strand or eight-strand, plaited or double braided to any diameter required.  Prices on braided, double braided and nylon ropes are also available.

As a wholesaler and importer of floats, ropes and general marine hardware, we are able to offer a broad range of materials and equipment used in the aquaculture industry.   If we don’t stock the item you are looking for, we can generally access products from our extensive list of manufacturers, wholesalers and suppliers.

See ropes, floats and marine hardware for more detailed information.
