Privilege 37 ? What Is EZ Sail ?

I have been browsing 36-44' cats for sale and I see this privilege 37 in the U.S. for sale listed as EZ sail. Is that something different from the other privilege 37's? Also, I see a 1996 privilege 36 for sale in the U.K... very reasonable.. but I didn't know privilege made a 36' boat.
Is anyone familiar with either of those boats?

I believe you've encountered "seller's pitch hyperbole," Privleoplag. It's ad speak for, "This boat practically sails itself - all you need to do is think of a destination and it'll take you there!" It's sort of the nautical equivalent of "water view" in real estate when someone is desperately trying to sell a house that's miles inland from the coast, but if you stand on the upstairs balcony off the guest room and lean wa-a-a-a-a-a-a-y out during the winter when the trees on your neighbor's property have dropped all their leaves, you can actually see something blue in the general direction of the coast if the light is just right.

See . . . EZ, huh?

Check the options list on the builders website.
EZ sail option for Beneteaus are genoa cars that can be adjusted from the cockpit.

genoa sheet foot blocks - Backstay adjustment(s) - Winch
handle Harken Speedgrip - Winch handle box - Emergency rope

Also referred to as EasyCruise, this is just a standard package of sail, electronics and other options available from Alliaura that sets you up as basically cruise ready at purchase time. I believe there was also a Performance package and the other was A La Carte, where you just selected all options individually. I would just ignore the term and look at what is actually on the boat at present.
