A SIMPLE, SUPER-LIGHTWEIGHT INFLATABLE SAILING DINGHY
Designed and developed by Marion Excoffon, the Tiwal 2 inflatable sailing
boat will be unveiled at Boot Düsseldorf from 19th to 27th January 2019.
This small, inflatable, single-handed 2.80 m dinghy is equipped with a loose-
footed sail of 5.6m2. It can carry up to one adult and one child (or two
children). It weighs 40kg and comes in two bags.
The Plug and Play dinghy is assembled in 15 minutes and in 5 stages: hull
inflation, inserting the daggerboard well, installing the rig, the appendages,
and then finished off with a final few strokes of the pump. And voila!
The drop-stitch hull is very stiff when fully inflated to a high pressure. Its
innovative inflatable wings offer maximum comfort in established wind
conditions. “I wanted the Tiwal 2 to be a companion for the whole family. I
imagined an ultra-simple boat that goes to basics. It is at the same time a proper
sailing boat, and a great toy to play on!” explains Marion.
TRANSFORMING THE EXPERIENCE OF THE ANCHORAGE
The Tiwal 2 was born from Marion’s desire to sail on a dinghy during her
holidays on her sailboat. «I wanted a super-compact sailing dinghy boat to carry
with us on holiday on our family’s First 30. With the Tiwal 2, I can continue to sail
during stopovers, even when the wind picks up. My daughter loves coming with me
to explore the nooks and crannies along the coast. Even reaching the beach has
become an adventure. The Tiwal 2 has completely transformed the experience at
anchor for the whole family.”
