Moonbird Wins Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous 2014

The 2014 superyacht racing season started on a strong note, with Moonbird winning Class C at the 2014 Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous.  Moonbird, built by Fitzroy Yachts and designed by Ed Dubois, is a 123′ sloop that was recently fitted with a new mast and Stratis ICE sails.  Matt Bridge from Doyle Sails New Zealand was sailing with the team on Moonbird.  Second place was the Oyster 100 Sarafin, and third was Tempus Fugit, a new 90′ sloop from Arkin Pruva Yachts – both of which carry Doyle sails.

In class A, the 164′ sloop Ohana placed third and Leopard by Robertissima was fifth with full Doyle inventories.  Chris McMaster and Justin Ferris from Doyle Sails New Zealand were sailing onboard Ohana.

The next event will be the St. Barths Bucket, with racing starting on Friday the 28th.  Moonbird, Sarafin and Ohana will be joined by other Doyle powered boats, including Axia, Blue Too, State of Grace and Zenji.

Matt Bridge Joins Doyle New Zealand as Superyacht Coordinator

Doyle Superyacht Matt Bridge

After serving his 15-year apprenticeship as a Charter Yacht Captain and Yacht Engineer, Matt Bridge has joined Doyle New Zealand to work alongside Quinny Houry in the Doyle Superyacht Division.

Matt’s extensive knowledge of the superyacht industry, his understanding of the processes that need to happen to ensure a satisfied customer, and his ability to get the work done have led him to join the Doyle New Zealand Team.

Matt and Quinny are the key superyacht contacts at Doyle New Zealand. The latest Dubois 52 meter, Red Dragon, was just suited with Stratis GPc Sails from Doyle New Zealand. Working with Peter Wilson, the owner’s representative, and the team at Alloy Yachts, Quinny and the New Zealand Superyacht Team pulled off an impressive delivery of perfect sails for a perfect yacht. Next up are the sails for the Phillippe Briand 120’ Performance Sloop and new working sails in Stratis for the Superyacht Alithia.
