Many of the AUSV's unique patented or proprietary design elements, including its WingSailTM and sail-by-wire capability, will be valuable to recreational and racing boat producers and users.
Today, recreational boat designs for more ecologically friendly and fuel efficient alternatives are being proposed to world class builders and receiving a high level of interest. Harbor Wing's breakthrough technology enables the development of wind driven recreational vessels that offer speed, precision control and safety without the expense and emissions of fossil fuels. These vessels will be as easy to command as engine powered watercraft. Harbor Wing is seeking platform partners willing to work with us to integrate our technology into their most popular multi-hull designs.
Renowned boat designers, Morrelli and Melvin, and Harbor Wing Technologies are joining to take a significant leap forward in wind power for luxury multi-hull sailing. Robustly designed WingSails provide exceptional performance and advanced control. Sleek vessel designs are matched to optimize safety, control and performance.

WingSailTM and Sail-by-Wire computer technology
Operation – Totally automated control is at the heart of the system, even on large catamarans, all it takes is one person and a joystick control.
Performance – Power equals that of a conventional sail rig with less WingSail area.
Safety – Stability and ease of control built in with Wing-Drive software system algorithms that keep you within the vessels performance boundaries.
Deck Space – Does away with running rigging and sail handling hardware that get in the way and create high load around passengers.
Automation – Set your speed, take the helm and the system manages all WingSail settings.
Hybrid Design – System engages auxiliary diesel or electric motors when desired or needed.
