On the occasion of this year’s METS (Marine Equipment Trade Show), Gleistein Ropes has today released its inaugural Super Yacht catalogue in Amsterdam, dedicated to the specific needs of this demanding, premium market segment. Gleistein is the leading rope supplier for the world’s largest and most extravagant super yachts. The new catalogue reinforces this enviable position and provides detailed information on the complete spectrum of high-end rigging and finishing solutions. It is designed in an exceptionally user-friendly format that shows individual products grouped in product families and also delivers easy-to-comprehend tables that clearly exhibit the main attributes and differences between the various products. Besides having the opportunity to learn more about the many innovative Gleistein solutions such as the versatile FLX Mooring System and CapTwin, which is optimised for the perfect interplay between feeder and winch, visitors to the trade-only METS fair will also have the opportunity to be the very first to get their own personal copy of the Super Yacht catalogue. Those who cannot make it to METS may also download the catalogue from the Gleistein Ropes website. METS runs 17-19 November 2015 in Amsterdam and the Gleistein Ropes booth is located in Hall 1, Stand 226.
