Default cheap yacht rope suppliers

Can anyone recommend the cheapest place to buy running rigging. In the US or Australia.

Looking to replace all the running rigging on a 84 ft yacht. Need 1000m of 20mm yacht braid and several hundred meters of 16m spectra.

My experience is that you will buy it cheaper in the US than Australia. Given the quantity you are wanting, I would approach the manufacturers or wholesalers direct. Either way, you're up for a reasonably large bill. Another concern which I am sure you will have, is the cost of transport following your purchase. I bought from Defender (a little less expensive than West Marine @ US$1300 for 500') Samson XLS Yacht Braid The weight of 3/4 braid is 90lb per 500'.
Also have a look here Yacht Braid Rope Promotion-Online Shopping for Promotional Yacht Braid Rope on Aliexpress.com and perhaps here Recreational Marine It is also worthwhile looking on eBay (Aust, UK, USA). There is plenty of braid at very good prices although it can be difficult to find 100m reels.
