STRATIS sails are a popular choice for both cruising and racing superyachts.
Stratis pre-impregnated fibre technology provides unmatched flexibility in fibre orientation, accuracy of placement and superior lamination. All fibres are load bearing, converging to every load point on the sail. This layout produces stronger, lighter sails that are much smoother when set. The sails hold their shape better with significantly less stretch, and will last longer than conventional panel sails.
External polyester taffetas provide excellent durability and improve the flex properties of the laminate and protect fibres and films from abrasion and UV damage. Taffetas can be incorporated on one or both sides of the sail.
Stratis laminates using either clear UV absorbing films or Ti02 coated taffetas with UV absorbers provide much greater protection from UV than standard PET film laminates.
Fibre paths laid to every reef and load point eliminate the potential distortion or laminate breakdown of conventional panel sails.
ROLLER FURLER SAILS
Stratis boom furling mainsails and roller furling headsails are custom designed with fibres laid for loads generated when the sail is furled. In conventional furling sails the uneven thickness of large reefing patches on the leech inhibits smooth furling. Stratis eliminates this problem, enabling smooth furling with a series of reefing positions.

Already a Doyle customer, Indio commissioned a full set of new Stratis ICE sails in 2013.
“From the first communication on what sails we desired for INDIO to the final fit and sea trial, Doyle exceeded my expectations: design discussion, detailing, aesthetics and customer service. INDIO is now a faster and safer boat to sail on… not to mention she never looked better!” - Captain Mark Fliegner, S/Y Indio.

Kokomo hosts a complete inventory of Doyle Stratis membranes designed and produced in New Zealand, and easily boasts many records in sail construction and sizing worldwide. At 2,227 square meters (23,971 square feet) the Gennaker is thought to be the largest sail ever constructed at the time. The working inventory comprises of a total of 3,038 square meters (32,688 square feet) of Stratis membrane sails, and many innovations in sail handling systems and detailing. The Mainsail has a custom designed boom furling system that utilizes the conventional bolt rope system of the Southern Spars, but also a self-loading batten car system jointly designed and tested by Doyle and Southern Spars over the last 18 months, which addresses many of the weak points of boom furling systems with the advantages of full battens in a yacht of this size.
