Assisted Sail Trim

Assisted Sail Trim

AST – Assisted Sail Trim – was designed and developed by Harken in collaboration with Jeanneau. It is a sailing aid system that automatically adjusts sails according to changes in the direction of the boat or wind, or in relation to the heeling of the boat. In short, after the pilot, here is also the automatic tailer.

The system consists of three different modules that can be installed separately by the shipyard and are designed to make sailing even more relaxing by remotely controlling the sails.

Auto Tracking

The basic Auto Tacking module manages the headsail while tacking while the helmsman makes the boat change tack. A sensor system detects apparent wind speed to activate the system in complete safety.

Auto Trim

The Auto Trim module is the perfect complement to the Auto Tacking module allowing for a true easy cruising experience. Simply adjust the sails initially, operate the Auto Trim switch, and let the system take care of the subsequent adjustments. The system monitors the apparent wind direction and adjusts the sails accordingly while you relax at the helm. A built-in boat heel control detects any gusts and limits the heel itself to the maximum value you set for greater comfort on board.

ASail Management

The Sail Management module allows sails to be hoisted and lowered. Load sensors detect any blockages during maneuvering, allowing halyards to be let go to solve the problem. All functions and maneuvers are controlled through a central console. Harken Rewind or Captive Reel winches allow the system to let go and caulk without manual intervention; for safety reasons, a special backup system is provided in any case in case of problems due to power supply.
