Doyle developed Delta sails as a sail solution for cruising and racing yachts under 50 feet. Delta oﬀers a more standardised membrane sail as compared to our fully customisable Stratis product.
Delta's high quality ﬁbre options and proven ﬁbre layouts oﬀer a modern alternative to the traditional panelled sail construction. Utilising the same plant and technology as the Doyle premier product, Stratis, Delta customers will reap all the beneﬁts of proven manufacturing processes at a more aﬀordable cost.
The ﬁbres utilized in Delta laminates are Black Technora and Carbon with the surface option of white taﬀeta or clear UV ﬁlms. Technora ﬁbres are extremely durable and resistant to ﬂex fatigue, and Carbon ﬁbres have the ability to resist stretch and maintain great shape retention over the life of the sail.
The Stratis process starts with EVERY sail being structurally engineered with the appropriate fibre for the application of the sail. One of the big benefits of Stratis is its ability to laminate more fibre types then any of the other sailmakers. This ranges from our highest modulus Carbon through to our Polyester range for small cruising boats; there really is a fibre or fibre blend for every application.
The outside surface is chosen with the client, as Doyle has a huge selection of weights, colours and surfaces dependent on the type of sail and type of sailing the sail will be used for.
