The Doyle Sails Solent loft offers a great working environment.

The loft is located in Universal Marina on the stunning River Hamble and in the middle of the Solent sailing community. And we are a small, friendly and professional team who work closely to make our loft a rewarding and enjoyable place to work.

Our sailmakers have the opportunity to learn all areas of sail making and this will, on occasion, also include duties such as helping customers, pick-up and drop-off of sails and fitting sails.
