Sport Phillip Marine has an extensive range of ski, polyester double braid, pre-stretch, Marstrom (Rooster), Poly spec blend, polypropolene, spectra (dyneema), spectra core, vectran, dynex, nylon, and silver rope of most colours and sizes from FSE, Whittam, Marlow, Liros, English Braids and many other manfacturers. We ensure that we have traditional flecked braid and a range of colours in stock at all times.

Whilst mooring and anchor ropes are available pre-spliced we are able to splice any rope to any requirements including wire to rope splicing.

We also make calf pullers and horse and dog leads.
