We're Engineering the Future
Doyle Sailmakers engineered and produced the world's largest sails for Mirabella V. Her 300-foot mast required sails 3.5 times larger than any sails ever built. In the process, our engineers developed OceanWeave®, the strongest sail fabric ever, and created the revolutionary segmented mainsail. Even before Mirabella Vs sails were hoisted, Doyle Sailmakers was commissioned to tackle the DynaRig of the 290-foot Maltese Falcon. Our engineers used wind tunnel testing, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, 3D modeling, and a unique computational optimization program to produce sails that could withstand enormous loads, be furled into the narrow 188-foot masts, and be intricately deployed onto the yardarms. The Doyle engineering team continues to develop new and stronger fabrics, luff tapes, and assembly methods. Don't you deserve better-engineered sails? Call us.

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
