Doyle Sailmakers to Supply Stratis Sails to Royal Huisman 46m Performance Ketch

Doyle Sailmakers is proud to announce that they have been selected as the sails supplier of choice for Project 392, the 46.4m high performance cruising ketch, in build at Royal Huisman.

Project 392 is a highly optimized performance design, which makes Stratis sails the perfect fit for this project,” said Mike Sanderson, Director of Sales for Doyle Sailmakers New Zealand, sole suppliers of Stratis laminates to the Doyle Group of Sailmakers. “The Stratis range was designed specifically with performance cruising and racing superyachts in mind and is ideally suited to this innovative ketch.”

For 392, Stratis will continue in their established superyacht aero programme with Southern Spars, having previously collaborated on projects including the newly launched 50m-performance sloop Ohana and the 58.4m-sloop Kokomo III amongst others.

“Not only are we proud to be working on such an exciting project, but it is a pleasure to be working directly with Royal Huisman for the first time, and to collaborate with the Hoek Design office once again,” said Sanderson. “It is also great to have the opportunity to work with Allan Prior of LLC Yacht Management and Jeremy Pochman.”

About Doyle Stratis

Doyle Stratis was developed in 2001-2002 when Doyle Sails realized that it was time for a new generation of sails. Designed with superyachts in mind, Stratis sails are the ultimate choice for performance yachts.

Stratis pre-impregnated fibre technology provides unmatched flexibility in fiber orientation, accuracy of placement and superior lamination. All fibers are load bearing, converging to every load point on the sail. This layout produces stronger, lighter sails that are much smoother when set. The sails hold their shape better with significantly less stretch and will last longer than conventional panel sails.

Doyle Sailmakers is continually developing its laminated sail products in terms of design, development and manufacture. Our research department continues to experiment with new fibers, adhesives and techniques with the aim of offering our clients the best product possible while our design department uses the latest computer technology and design tools to develop shapes and structures for faster sails.

Salperton IV Fitted with Doyle Stratis

Following the stepping of a new Southern Spar carbon rig, the 45 metre superyacht Salperton IV returned to Palma to have new Doyle Stratis high performance sails fitted.

With the order only placed in July 2011, it was a very tight schedule to complete the design and production of such a large project, but it was achieved with flying colors.

Following the sail trials, Doyle Palma Director, Quinten “Quinny” Houry said “The mainsail fits perfectly and looks and feels really fast. The Genoas have a great shape and will boost performance. The Stratis production system enables us to produce a quality performance sail that we expect to last longer than alternatives.”

Quinny was also very pleased with the success of the innovative furling batten system, a joint development between Doyle Sailmakers and Southern Spars, which works superbly. Small track cars are installed on the luff and these are able to furl around the boom, allowing the sail to be stowed, but still allowing for low friction cars on the mainsail luff.

The new sail program included mainsail, reacher, jib and purpose built racing blade genoa. This blade genoa was fitted with C-Tech air battens. These feature high pressure tubing along the leech. When connected to an air supply the batten pockets are pressurized. This system allows for fast sail changes without having to install, remove or store long battens.

Mike Sanderson Joins Forces with Doyle Sailmakers New Zealand

Doyle Sailmakers is pleased to announce the appointment of renowned world class sailing professional Mike Sanderson. Mike will be joining the team at the beginning of June 2011 as Director of Sales and Partner for the Doyle New Zealand and Sydney operation.

Doyle New Zealand’s Managing Director Chris McMaster comments, "We have achieved considerable growth in recent times and the development and ongoing R&D with Stratis puts us in an ideal position now to join forces with one of the most influential professionals in the world of sailboat racing. Mike’s experience and personality perfectly complement our business; this development will allow us to increase the pace of our expansion into the Grand Prix sailboat racing market.”

Mike Sanderson was ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year in 2006, a veteran of three America’s Cup campaigns and two times Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race winner.

Mike brings with him a wealth of experience having been involved on the technical side of sail programs and as part of the design and build teams for both Team ABN AMRO boats, as well as Skippering ABN AMRO One to one of the most convincing Volvo victories in the race’s history.

In addition, Mike has extensive Superyacht experience including the high profile race boats Mari Cha III and IV, which between them have dominated the Trans Atlantic Monohull record over the last twelve years.

Mike Sanderson and Head of Design, Richard Bouzaid, together present a formidable team with a huge amount of knowledge, skill and contacts in this field. Between them they have been involved at the premier level of America’s Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, Grand Prix racing, as well as local campaigns on both the technical side as well as in sailing capacities.

The knowledge base at Doyle Sailmakers with respect to design and sail making is now second to none, and combined with the high performance results being achieved by Stratis laminates, Doyle Sailmakers can continue to offer their customers the optimum sail product.

Doyle Sailmakers’ increasing share of the market can be credited to the success of the Stratis facility and the company’s continual commitment to innovation and advancing design.

2011 St. Barths Bucket Brings Together World’s Largest Superyachts

Doyle Sailmakers is proud to have sponsored the St. Barths Bucket Regatta held March 25-27, 2011. This year marked the 25th year of Bucket racing – and the 15th edition of the St Barths Bucket. Of the 40 superyachts competing in this legendary event, 15 were new to the Bucket fleet. The average length of yacht was a staggering 64 meters. Lined up bow to stern, the yachts would measure almost three kilometers.

Maltese Falcon at 2011 St Barths Bucket

It was a spectacular sight to be seen with the 89m dyna rig Maltese Falcon, 75m Mirabella V and 58m Kokomo III all on the same starting line at the 2011 St. Barths Bucket with 100% Doyle Sails.

Kokomo III at 2011 St Barths Bucket

During three days of racing, the fleet of 40 superyachts raced around the volcanic island counterclockwise on day one, tackled the infamous “Not So Wiggly Course” on day two, and on day three raced around the island clockwise. The fleet is divided into three categories: Les Elegantes des Mers for the J Class, Les Grandes Dames des Mers for the Cruising Class, and Les Gazelles des Mers for the Racing Class, making the racing more equally competitive and safer. The races are pursuit format, with staggered starts according to each yacht’s rating. The slowest boat is first off the line, and the rest of the fleet starts at time intervals determined by each boat’s predicted elapsed time around the course. Theoretically in a pursuit race, all the yachts will cross the finish line at the same time.

Mirabella V and Kokomo III carried the latest Doyle Stratis sails, while Maltese Falcon carried her 25,791 square feet of Dacron Doyle sails that have taken her over 90,000 miles.

The 96´sloop Symmetry with a full inventory of Doyle Stratis upwind and Doyle downwind sails came in 3rd Overall and 2nd in Les Gazelles.

AXIA at 2011 St Barths BucketAxia

Perhaps the belle of the ball was the 37m AXIA, one of the smallest yachts in Les Grandes Dames, who won her class with her new Doyle Stratis sails.

The Ron Holland designed Blue Too came in 3rd in Les Grand Dames. Blue Too was delivered to its new Owner just six weeks before the Bucket. Blue Too was powered by Doyle Stratis Carbon/Vectran sails and Doyle downwind sails. This was the owner’s first Bucket as an Owner and what an impressive first Bucket it was for him, the Captain and Crew.

Blue Too Celebrating 3rd in Les Grand Dames and the Alloy Cup

In addition to coming in 3rd in class, Blue Too won the Alloy Cup, for best performance by an Alloy Yacht. The four Alloy Yacht competitors included: Kokomo III 58m, Genevieve 38m, Blue Too 34m, and Paraiso 32m.

The 38m P2 won the Perini Navi Cup, awarded to the Perini-Navi Yacht with the best result. Of the 40 yachts competing, the seven Perini-Navi yachts include: Maltese Falcon 88m, Parsifal III 54m, Klosters 47m, Antara 46m, Helios II 45m, and P2 38m.

Maltese Falcon won the Vitter’s Shipyard Seamanship Trophy, awarded to the yacht that demonstrates the best seamanship and sportsmanship in the interest of promoting safety on the race course. This award recognizes the yacht that best demonstrates the understanding that superyachts have serious limitations operating safely in close quarters and value safety well above performance.

In addition to coming in 1st in Les Grand Dames, AXIA also successfully defended the Skullduggery Cravat, holding the trophy for the best Bucket humor for 3 years running. The Skullduggery Cravat is awarded to the yacht and crew who display the best Bucket humor and promulgates non-adult behavior.

What is the World’s Largest Main Made Of?

Doyle Stratis.

If you want the strongest, most reliable sails, choose Doyle Stratis. Mirabella V had her new Doyle Stratis mainsail fitted and trialed in St. Martin yesterday. Mirabella V is the largest sloop in the world: the single-masted vessel is 75-meters long (247 feet), and that mast also happens to be the world’s tallest, with the world’s largest main attached to it.

Mirabella V's New Doyle Stratis Main being lifted on the boat

The scale of Mirabella V’s sails required novel engineering, taking full advantage of Doyle’s extensive superyacht experience, from material development to novel construction techniques.

Mirabella V New Stratis Main
Mirabella V New Stratis Main

Mirabella V’s mainsail measures 1,200 square meters (12,900 square feet). Building and designing Stratis membranes for this sized boat facilitated the need for a new view on the engineering and safety margins. Tyler Doyle modeled the loads using Doyle’s combined CFD-FEA program and designed the structural load paths to best address the enormous loads that this boat will generate. The Stratis main was built in Doyle’s custom built 32,000 square foot superyacht manufacuring facilty in Salem, MA.

Mirabella V Segmented Mainsail

In 2004, when Mirabella was first launched, Doyle invented the “Segmented Mainsail” and “Compression Spring Battens” to allow a sail of Mirabella’s size and complexity to be manufactured, handled and serviced efficiently. With the "Segmented Mainsail" design, the new Stratis mainsail is composed of three separate, yet interdependent, sections. Two full-length battens join the segments at the top and bottom edges to form the complete sail. Building the sail in these segments makes construction, transport and service significantly easier.

Mirabella V Compression Spring BattenThe batten development for Mirabella V was largely a question of optimization: at the required batten stiffness, what is the maximum toughness that could be achieved while minimizing weight aloft? The "Compression Spring Battens" clearly demonstrate Doyle Sailmakers’ commitment to durability and toughness.

Just a year ago Kokomo III was outfitted with 3,038 square meters (32,700 square feet) of Doyle Stratis. Her Gennaker at 2,227 square meters (23,971 square feet) is the largest sail ever constructed. To read more about Kokomo, click here.
