Mooring rope sizes

I am about to buy a Falcon 45 in the Med and I would like to replace all rigging and cordage bit by bit. First I would like to replace the mooring lines (springs) and would like advice on the correct lengths and size of 3 strand I would need.
TIA

Ahhhhh 3 strand?
Will work but will look a bit off.

Then again we've just done 2 sets for superboats and those boys know how to spend the coin. And it's all about the looks babe, structural integrity seems not to matter.

16 to 20mm depending on how grunty you want.
2 at 1/2 the length of the boat, 2 at the length of the boat and maybe one 1.5 times the length. That's about an 'average' set.
