All the latest news from Doyle Caribbean and lofts around the world...
We are so pleased with the new enclosure that you have fabricated for our 47 foot Tradewinds sundeck trawler. The original was so rotted that the glass was splitting and crumbling if you tried to touch it. I have no idea how you managed to pattern off of this. We had three quotes done and they all were within $300.00 of each other. We chose your company as we are very familiar with your work and Eunice and I are both in the marine industry. The problem is getting someone to follow up with service after the unit is in and there is a problem. You are usually ignored and if some of them have their money you will even have to pay someone else to repair their mistakes. Not so with your company, two clips malfunctioned and you are all over it. We are so pleased and proud of how this has made our boat look. Thank you!!!! and well done. Drew Bremner, BVI

Following the stepping of a new Southern Spar carbon rig, the 45 metre superyacht “Salperton” 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 colours. more
