“Innovation is the unrelenting drive to break the status quo and develop anew where few have dared to go.” - Steven Jeffes, Marketing & business expert.
Innovation around new and existing sailing technologies has always been at the core of the Doyle Sails operation. A major advantage of Doyle Sails is their stellar all-round team that cover every aspect of sailmaking from R&D and design to sailmaking technology. Doyle's strategy is to provide full support to all of customers across the board.
Doyle's design department apply a sophisticated and thorough approach to the design and engineering of all sails, making use of advanced design software to design and optimize the sails before they are even built. The team applies 3D modelling together with aero and structural analysis to ensure custom sails that fit, and perform outstandingly, straight out of the bag.
Understanding the life cycle impact of our sails is driving us to push past existing R&D, and to develop innovative solutions for some of our highest impact areas. We are constantly looking to collaborate with local and global innovative partners to help us develop recycling technologies for our sails, which include hard to recycle mixed materials.
