that fits in your car's trunk

Stowed in the trunk of your car, the Tiwal 3 inflatable sailboat will take you on an ocean of nautical adventures.

The weekend promises to be sunny and you’re dreaming of a trip on the water? Are you vacationing by the sea and looking forward to tacking in that windy bay? Your Tiwal 3 is in the trunk of your car, so it’s okay, we’ll get you out on the water!


A compact daysailer, easily transported

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

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

When not in use, it is discreet, can be tidied away in a closet or (small) corner of the garage.

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

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

Cherry on the cake: maintenance is simply occasional rinsing.

Basically, a boat with no strings attached!
