A dinghy that fits in 2 bags
and assembles in only 20 mn

A story
of passion

One adventure, 1000 excursions

It all started with Marion Excoffon’s idea;  a mad idea to create an inflatable dinghy that would bring the pleasure of sailing to everyone. A boat that would enable everyone to skipper their own escapades, and focus on the simple pleasure of sailing. An idea that meant everyone could hoist their sails for a day, an afternoon, an hour... on a whim or a fancy. At Tiwal, we call this an escapade. You can invent your own!

Bear Grylls'
Escapade

“The whole experience is one of minimum fuss minimum rigging and maximum fun.”

It was very windy and all the main sailing races had been cancelled, but this just seemed tailor-made for me. The dinghy would be fun to test in these conditions. And it was ! The Tiwal 3 took off at a rate of knots. The last time I felt such a surge of raw power under sail was with Ellen MacArthur in her Open 60 yacht Kingfisher. We bore away from the wind in a reach and experienced the surge of adrenaline and power as we just took off. Now, here I was in the Tiwal 3, and it was amazing ! I bore away too fast from the wind, the nose dipped – and wham – we pitchpoled like a catapult. But once I gured out that I had to really shift the weight back to stop the bow nosing into the waves, it was awesome, skimming and planing across the big sea more like a windsurfer than a sailboat. I loved it.
