ABOUT THIS LOFT
Doyle Sails Tasmania was originally established in 1964 as “Peter Johnston’s Sailmakers” by Peter Johnston in Sullivan’s Cove. The company quickly developed a reputation for quality, service and building strong relations with the marine industry in Tasmania. The company is now owned and operated by Nick Dineen and Brian Moroney, after working for the Johnston family as managers for many years.
