A small cheeky sailboat

Sail however you want, the Tiwal 2 will adapt. Single-handed, one adult and a child, two children. Its round scow-shaped bow adds volume up front and makes the boat particularly easy to helm. Its inflatable wings provide additional lateral stability when under way. The Tiwal 2 is a small sailboat that has all the features of a big one, with reactive and playful behavior on the water.

Easy assembly onboard

Assemble as quick as a flash

Assembling a Tiwal 2 is child’s play. There are very few parts to assemble. Inflate the hull, clip on the structural sections, finish inflating and then add the rig and sheet. All this in just 15 minutes and with no tools required. Your Tiwal 2 is ready!  And disassembly? Same thing, but in reverse, and it’s just as quick.


A fun and safe sailboat

The Tiwal 2 tiny sailboat is very safe for sailors: the deck is clear, the controls are simple, and the sail has been designed to be boomless. The inflatable wings also provide incomparable comfort when hiking out, or as a backrest in a sitting position. 

The yellow sail is easy to see on the water. Are your kids going out on your Tiwal 2 sailboat? You can spot them at a glance!

Take your sailboat on board

Once assembled, the inflated hull can be stored on the trampoline at the front of a catamaran or on the deck of a monohull cruiser. Launching your Tiwal is really simple as it’s light and easy to handle. Just tie a line at the mast step and lower the Tiwal 2 hull into the water.

The Tiwal 2 hull also has seven carrying handles around the perimeter for easy handling from any position. Once the hull is on the water, simply pop the rudder on, the centerboard and the mast with the sail. Your little sailboat is now ready for boarding!

The yellow sail wraps around the mast. At anchor, it’s easy to leave your Tiwal 2 tied off the stern of your cruising boat, or pulled on the beach if you’ve gone for a swim.

Sail in all weathers

The 5.6 m² furling sail is a practical sail, suitable for one or two adults sailing in a light to moderate breeze. It rolls up around the mast for easy storage.

The reefable 7/5.20 m² sail is an all-weather sail, whose area can be adapted to suit the wind strength. If the weather changes, you just need to make a quick stop on the beach to make your optimal sail area.
