Tiwal 3: a small sailboat
that fits in your car's trunk


A compact sailboat, easily transported

In the trunk of a car or camper van, on the plane, the deck of a boat or towed behind a bike.

Stored in its 2 bags, you can take the Tiwal 3 anywhere, without a trailer, for an evening sail after work or during your holidays!

When you aren’t sailing, it is discreet, tidied in a closet or (small) corner of the garage.

Intuitive and fast to assemble

Do you love sailing but the time it takes to get on the water makes you queasy?

In 20 minutes, the Tiwal 3 dinghy can be assembled (and folds back down) alone, without tools or specialist knowledge, using clips and Velcro.

Cherry on the cake: maintenance is simply occasional rinsing.

Basically, a boat without strings attached!
