Doyle Sails operates a central design team consisting of highly qualified sailors who each bring different strengths to the team.
Spike Boston is the head designer within the group and leads the innovation and research for the Doyle Design team. The design tools are amongst the most advanced 3D modeling and airflow available on the market.

Specifics such as projected windrange, crossover charts and specifics of an individual sail can be modeled and predicted prior to the sail even being fitted to the boat. This make assesment of the racing and cruising inventories more than just an estimation or guess - which is what many sailmakers have done previously. The design team has the resources of all members of the Doyle group, which encompasses some 40 sailmaking operations.
