As sailors, our obsession with sailing connects us to the water. The water is our playground, a sanctuary where we seek enjoyment, a competitive playing field where we race as comrades; it’s sometimes our home, and always a place that unlocks our sense of adventure wherever that adventure might take us.
Our obsession with sailing takes us to every corner of the world and on board every yacht. We become part of teams, share in the adventures of friends and families, sharing our knowledge and experience with those who have the same passion for sailing as we do. Sailing is in our DNA, where the water unlocks our sense of adventure. We are the custodians of a legacy that has been supporting sailors for close to four decades and while our world changes around us, our commitment to sailors who seek the same enjoyment and adventure as we do, hasn’t.
From our sailors to yours. We are your experts in sailing. Your adventure starts with Doyle.
By sailors, for sailors.
“It was great to get back out on the water to race in the Young 88 Nationals. Dangerzone has a complete new inventory of Doyle sails with the latest design of the Structured Luff jibs. This gives the boat so much versatility across the wind range and made the boat very competitive in all conditions. I couldn’t be happier with the way the boat performed with the sails literally straight out of the bag. Huge credit to the team at Doyles”
- Dean Barker
‘Comanche has been able to realise more of her potential with the addition of Doyle’s Cableless Sails, I highly recommend this exciting technology for any size boat. The big jibs and the A3 are very powerful yet significantly lighter than I expected, increasing acceleration with greater righting moment. The sails’ ability to hold their shape at all angles with virtually no luff sag is astounding on such big sails. We have reduced rig load dramatically with these sails and our performance improved in all conditions, particularly light air. Our new Doyle mainsail is exceptionally high quality and the reduction in permanent weight aloft gives immediate gains in all wind strengths.
- Jim Cooney, Owner Comanche
‘Infotrack have sailed under North Sails for all our racing career and this year in 2018, we have decided to give Doyle Sails the opportunity to provide inventory due to a few factors. 1 - Doyle have developed a new ’Cableless’ sail system which is very interesting as well as lighter. 2 - Doyle, via Richard Bouzaid, have reviewed much of our inventory with the sole motivation of betterment or questioning the questionable. 3 - Last but not least, you get a lot of ‘bang for your buck’ from Doyle. We have bought 6 new sails as well as other performance enhancing items and at very reasonable prices. The Doyle team, led by Mike Sanderson and David Duff were just passionate, focused and very intelligent. Richard was all over every area with hands on involvement and now having Chris Nicholson driving the Australian end, it makes for comfortable commercial decision making. It is also great to work with GREAT blokes.
- Joe Akacich, Skipper InfoTrack
“We had no hesitation selecting Doyle Sails for SailGP. They are a company that is at the forefront of a lot of technology in sail making and sail design and we knew they had the expertise, innovation and commitment to deliver on such a project.
We also knew that success would be just as important for them as it is for us. The result was that the teams were unanimous in their praise of the quality and service that Doyle Sails delivered.”
- Sir Russell Coutts, CEO SailGP
“We are stoked to have Doyle Sails on board with the New Zealand SailGP Team. To have a world-class sailmaker that's owned and operated out of New Zealand and shares our environmental values is a pretty special alliance to have."
- Peter Burling, CEO New Zealand SailGP Team
“Doyle Sails' ability to approach a project with an open mind and to be entirely customer focused is a refreshing change for a sailmaker."
- Stefan Jentzsch, Owner Botin 56, Black Pearl
“There is a lot of talk about different foils we have on Hugo Boss, but as always the speed edge we have does not come from one place. The other place that we are completely different to the other IMOCA 60’s is our sails. No other team is with Doyle Sails and obviously the sails play a huge part in this race. With the number of sails limited to nine and that they have to be light enough to be used single-handedly and strong enough to survive the world’s toughest ocean race, it’s a tough challenge. The design team lead by Richard Bouzaid put in a huge amount of effort in the last two years to help us with the right suit of sails for Hugo Boss. The Stratis product lends itself brilliantly and I would be very surprised if anyone has anything as light and as durable as we have. It just goes to show that if you want something different, something fast or you want an edge - best not to follow the crowd!”.
- Alex Thomson, HUGO BOSS
“Doyle Sails have designed, produced and fitted the new jibs for the AP and HAW wings that we are now using in SailGP. Straight out of the bag the jibs fit perfectly and cover all the ranges of breeze we expect. Speeds are going to be higher this season with the HAW wings, the little jibs to go with it providing the power needed, with little drag, to balance the boat perfectly. It is great to be back racing again and I can’t wait to get out ripping in Taranto soon!”
