The Tiwal 2 is an inflatable sailing dinghy that can be carried in two bags and is ready to sail in just 15 minutes. Tiwal wants to turn the dinghy into a toy that should not be missing on board of yachts.
This inflatable sailing dinghy of 2,80m length is equipped with a sail without boom of 5,6m². One adult and one child or two children can sail the Tiwal 2. She weighs 40kg and fits in two bags. The Plug and Play sailing dinghy is assembled in five stages in 15 minutes: inflating the hull, inserting the sword, mast, outriggers and inflating again. Done!
Family friendly The drop-stitch hull is very solid after being inflated under high pressure. The inflatable outriggers are very comfortable when riding out, especially in good winds "I wanted a family-friendly Tiwal 2. My idea of a very easy to handle boat that is all about the essentials has been realised. It is a real sailing boat, which is also a beautiful playground," explains Marion Excoffon, who designed and developed the Tiwal 2.
Sports equipment and toy at the anchorage Marion Excoffon wanted to be able to sail a dinghy while on holiday on the sailing boat. This led to the idea of the Tiwal 2 " I wanted a compact sailing dinghy, which I could take on our family boat, a First 30, during the holidays. With the Tiwal 2, I can still sail when we are at anchor and the wind gets stronger. My daughter loves to explore the coast with me. The adventure includes the exploration of the beach. With the Tiwal 2 the time at the anchorage becomes a sailing pleasure." The Tiwal 2 is the perfect toy for exploring anchor bays and sailing even at anchorage. The dinghy meets the demand of yacht owners who want to have suitable sports and play equipment on board their yachts, which they can use with the family and which requires little space. The compactly packed bags can be easily stowed in the bunkers. The concept of the Tiwal 2 simplifies its installation on the ship's deck as well as the launching from the yacht. Its sail, which can be rolled up around the mast, enables fast rigging and time-saving stowage.
Sturdy and suitable for beginners The sturdy Tiwal 2 is easy to handle for beginners (both adults and children). They can practice riding with the help of the inflated, comfortable and safe outriggers. Experienced sailors will appreciate the reactivity and playful character of the dinghy in up to 15-20 knots of wind. The V-shaped hull and the sword keel allow the dinghy to sail at an optimal wind height. Alone or with a child, the Tiwal 2 offers fascination under sail and even glides over the water. Marion: "I was influenced by the mini boat class, whose boats have a scow bow in order to achieve the best compromise between comfort and compactness".
