ENGINEERING & MANUFACTURING of high performance boats and composite parts.

With an experience of more than 10 years in the engineering design and manufacture of high performance boats and components, we have decided to turn our passion and professional skills into our business. So, we founded AST - Advanced Sailing Technologies GmbH in 2017.


We proudly introduce the newest family member: The Foiling Dinghy non-foiling, the Lowrider L12.

The L12 builds on the very successful design of The Foiling Dinghy. It's a simple and easy to use dinghy with an outstanding performance. With its wide planning hull it offers sensational and fast downwind rides and still gives you a lot of stability for quick upwind sailing. It's the latest hull design on the dinghy market with a wave piercing bow. The comfortable cockpit with EVA non-skid invites you to enjoy sailing. Thanks to the ergonomic design all controls are within reach. All controls are supplied with high quality hardware and (dyneema) ropes - because performance matters. The L12 comes with a powerful rig with a carbon mast with track and halyard to fit the 9.5m² North Sails fully-battened laminate sail. Our promise: It only takes 5min to get ready to sail. The L12 is built in carbon reinforced epoxy sandwich applying vacuum infusion technology. This provides the highest quality available on the market and ensures absolute one design, with less than 30kg hull weight. With that weight you can easily transport the boat on your car roof. Delivery starts in April 2020, made in Germany. Preorder now.
