The Doyle brand stands for global leadership in high performance sails as well as having a reputation for being proven innovators with new technology. The brand was founded by Robbie Doyle in 1982 and has built an unfounded proven track record in delivering design excellence and customer satisfaction. Everything we do starts with our customers and our mission to provide sailors around the world with quality sails and unparalleled personal service. No other sailmaker works as hard to satisfy the unique needs to every client, from the daysailors to the superyachts, and every boat in between. If you're looking to win races, cruise confidently, or just enjoy your boat more, you can rely on Doyle.
Across the world, Doyle Sails employs 560 people, all equally passionate about our brand and the services we deliver to our customers. We have 50 lofts in place and still growing and we live and breathe our brand ethos to be ‘Global Leaders and Local Experts’.
Doyle Sails International owners and management team include Mike Sanderson, CEO; Richard Bouzaid, Design Director; and David Duff, General Manager.
In June 2017, Mike Sanderson and his leadership team of Richard Bouzaid and David Duff, took over the ownership of Doyle Sails International from Robbie Doyle. This new age of Doyle will bring together all team forces to reach a common goal of global efficiency whilst keeping the important touch of local attention. It remains fundamental to the New Zealand team that the core values and reputation that have been built over the last 34 years under the direction of Robbie Doyle remain strong. The outstanding leadership team across all levels of the organisation will ensure that the brand evolves with the rapidly changing market. The Doyle Brand is moving forward from a foundation of strength across all of the businesses.
