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. 5 prototypes later, Tiwal pulled up at the 2012 Paris Boat Show. It was a huge success. Following numerous awards and over 800 boats sold, Tiwal is continuing on its way, heading for America (remind you of anything?) with Marion at the helm, Emmanuel her partner in business and in life, and a team of 7 people based in Brittany, Western France. Fair winds!
