Megayacht Red Dragon gets Stratis membrane sails

Doyle NZ has charged into 2008 with the largest sail project to come from the New Zealand manufacturing facility of Stratis Sail Cloth. The sails were hoisted last week on the latest superyacht to come to fruition from the Dubois drawing board, Red Dragon.

This super sloop, built by Alloy Yachts, specified and received perfectly fitting and uniquely monogrammed sails that performed flawlessly during the tests out on the Hauraki Gulf in Auckland. These sails mark a milestone for “Stratis” – being by far the largest membrane sails produced to date at the Stratis Sail Loft. By all accounts these sails were probably the largest custom-inlaid fibre sails produced by a sail loft anywhere in the world.
