JOYSTICK TO STEER A SAILBOAT
We have developed the most efficient and the most accurate joystick to steer a sailing boat. People with disability will find it really similar to their electric wheelchair. With the joystick, you can pilot the sailboat as easily as being in your electric wheelchair. It’s a great way to enjoy sailing with your friends and family.
You are the captain of the boat and you decide where to go and when to switch sides.
JOYSTICK TO TRIM THE SAILS
With a joystick you can control the sails. You can trim and ease the sheets just by pulling or pushing the joysticks. You can control each sail independently or with only one joystick. Our electronic system can be configured as much as you want because we use IT program to make the configuration. We can even program two or three different program in the same joystick, so that the system will adapt to the person who is steering.
A BOAT TO HAVE FUN TOGETHER
We also designed a special sailing boat. The “SP-RED One” is the first boat with two people which can be controlled using joysticks or a smartphone.
This boat is as easy to pilot as an electric wheel chair. So if you know how to control an electric wheel chair, you know how to control our SP-RED One boat and you can go on your own on the water.
This boat has a weighted keel that prevents the boat from capsizing. It’s safe and comfortable. It allows for two seating and sailing adaptations to provide the best sailing experience for everyone.
WE CAN ADAPT OUR JOYSTICK CONTROL SYSTEM TO STEER ANY KIND OF BOAT
On Hansa sail boats (for instance the access dinghy 303), thanks to our joystick control system, you can easily steer the sailing boat and trim both sails : check it out on youtube.
We can even install the system on 2.4mR.
