The AST (Assisted Sail Trim) system is the fruit of a superb collaboration between Jeanneau and Harken that reinvents short-handed cruising and sailing with the development of assisted sail handling.
This innovative system is designed to contribute to a relaxing day out on the water by offering assisted sail handling via sensor-guided, push-button control.
