The Tiwal 3.2 is an inflatable sailboat that you can bring down to the beach in the trunk of a car. Even better, it can be assembled and taken down in just 20 minutes, providing a way to enjoy sailing on the water without the usual hassles.
Described as the “very first high-performance inflatable sailing dinghy for water sports,” it combines performance, safety, and convenience like no other boat in the market. It’s designed for both thrilling and leisurely rides, making for a boat that can be enjoyed whether on solo adventures or family outings.
During use, the Tiwal 3.2’s inflatable hull attaches to a metal structure, which, in turn, holds the sail. It provides ample seating for two adults (or one adult and two children), with the structure’s wings offering extended seating to maximize the dinghy’s gliding ability during rides. When fully equipped to sail, the boat measures 10.5 inches long and weighs 111 pounds, along with two sail options, 56 square feet for leisurely riding and 75 square feet for faster acceleration. When put away for storage, the parts can be separated into two bags, one for the hull and another for the sail/structure, both of which measure 59 x 16 x 14 inches. It can handle a maximum load of 418 pounds.
A wide V-shaped underbody gives the boat greater stability than traditional sailing dinghies, apart from allowing the maximum acceleration to reach planing speed in 3 to 4 force winds. It also boasts a boomless sail and high clearance that give riders plenty of mobility on deck, as well as a saber-shaped daggerboard for providing the upwind sailing ability of a traditional dinghy.
Pricing for the Tiwal 3.2 starts at €4,575.
