CRUISING SAILS

From its inception, Doyle Sailmakers has been committed to making sailing more enjoyable and satisfying for its customers. Our commitment to the cruising sailor has been to make sailing easier and increase the performance of their boats. Doyle's working sails are generally put into two categories, Durasails, which are constructed of woven dacron for durability and value, and our premium Bluewater sails that are engineered for offshore performance oriented cruising and durability.

Durasail

Still considered some of the most durable and economical sails around, it is not surprising to see how many of our original Durasails are still going strong. Our superior engineered sails, designed by Bill Durant who understands how sails get used, has allowed us to build a better, more durable sail.

Bluewater

The Doyle Bluewater Line is the ultimate in offshore performance cruising sails. All sails are fully customized with exceptional handwork, chafe protection and construction details needed to provide thousand of miles of ocean sailing. Built with durability and longevity mind, DoyleBluewater Sails are built to last!

Downwind

Doyle has developed and refined cruising spinnakers for better all-around performance, and worked out their details to ensure they are durable and easy to set. With very carefully tuned designs, the sails are easy to trim and fly, so that they do not require constant attention.

Canvas & Sail Handling

Since the Doyle Gulf Coast Loft is in the Island Nautical facility, we have all of the accessories to make your sail handling experience a pleasurable one, instead of a headache. With a Doyle StackPack and/or a Tides Track System, you will be able to hoist or store your Main in a SNAP!

Be wary of companies that do not require a measurement form! There are several key measurements that equate to proper fit and sail shape. It is impossible to make a perfect sail without the exact measurements for YOUR boat. You never know if a previous owner has changed something that would dramatically alter the proper fit of a sail. Call us and we'll make your sailing experience better than it's ever been!
