S/Y Ecover Custom Running Rigging Package 

We recently produced a fully custom running rigging package for modified Challenge 67 S/Y “Ecover” based in Mallorca, Spain.

At Ocean Rope we are specialists in producing custom running rigging packages, our care and attention to detail makes us market leaders in the UK.

All the halyards were produced in black for a smart look at the mast, we added chafe sleeve tips for abrasion resistance, these were painted to aid identification for the yachts crew. Our large UK stock allowed us to produce this package all in the same colour, we used around 400 metres of rope!

Our Super braid rope with its 12 strand, low stretch HMPE core provides an excellent performance halyard and was the ideal product for this job.

Specifications were:

1 x 2:1 Main halyard – 10mm Super braid with Black Chafe sleeve tip

2 x Mast head spinnaker halyards – 12mm Super braid with painted red and green chafe sleeve tips – Tylaska T20 Snap Shackles

1 x Jib halyard –  12mm Super braid with painted blue chafe sleeve tip – Tylaska T20 Snap shackle 

1 x Pole topping lift – 10mm Super braid with black chafe sleeve tip – Tylaska T12 Snap Shackle

2 x Runner Tails – Blue/Charcoal Technora Braid with Covered eye splice


Ecover is available for charter throughout the season in Mallorca
