Precourt DeadEye

Precourt Deadeye


Synthetic rigging is becoming more & more popular on boats, Precourt have developed the use of deadeyes in place of rigging screws as a simple, efficient and light weight way of tensioning the rigging.

The idea originated from the old wooden deadeyes used on square rigged sailboats. They thought, if the part worked and was used for so many years with rope rigging, the same idea should apply to new high-tech synthetic lines.

With this idea in mind, they adapted the "historic" wooden deadeyes to work with today's new high-tech synthetic lines. Their "modern" deadeyes have been designed with the utmost attention to three very important factors: strength, lightness and ease of line adjustment.

Precourt deadeyes are all billet CNC machined using 6061-T6 Aluminium, polished and colour anodised.
