Imagined and developed during the confinement, the Astus team is pleased to unveil the latest addition to the range: the Astus 14.5, a navigation support in a canoe or trimaran version, light and easily transportable. Objective: offer a more compact boat and regain gliding sensations, the simple pleasure of being on water.
Story of a new-found freedom :
A few months ago, France is idling, the Astus shipyard, like the others, too. The pace, less sustained, allows time to have ideas, imagine and develop. As in all shipyards, there is no lack of equipment, old versions of Astus, bits, fittings ... With the existing means, the team takes on a challenge, to create a small boat, to find the simple pleasure of being on the water.
