I sailed about 1,000 nms on a 54 footer with a full remote electric winch system. It was about 15 years ago.
At both helms there was a backlit schematic of the boat and toggle switches where each winch, furler etc was. It was a Solent duel headsail rig. Tacking up a river in a race to use the forarrd genoa when ready to go about: unfurl the aft genoa, furl the forrard, tack, unfurl the forrard and furl the aft. The whole thing done with one hand on these buttons while steering with the other hand. Bloody funny stuff.
