Tiwal is the story of a girl who wasn’t shy, Marion Excoffon.
Before making her name in design, Marion started out by hearing a “No”. Her father was refusing to lend her the family sailboat. That might have been the end of it had it not been for Marion’s feisty character – she dreamt up her own folding boat!
Then she decided to fill it with air, and the first Tiwal inflatable dinghy was born. Many prototypes later, Tiwal pulled up at the 2012 Paris Boat Show and a few months later at the 2013 Annapolis Boat show. It was a huge success. Following numerous awards and over 1,800 boats sold in more than 45 countries worldwide, Tiwal is continuing on its way, expanding in America with Marion at the helm, Emmanuel her partner in business and in life, and a team of 10 people. We now operate in the USA from the Boston area. Fair winds!
