Having sold more than 2,000 of its inflatable sailing dinghies worldwide, Tiwal is now launching the Tiwal 3R, its new sport dinghy. This is a technical and compact boat for serious sailors. And it can be taken anywhere, in the back of the car... 


The Tiwal 3R is the latest addition to the Tiwal range. Stored in its bags,

this new inflatable sailboat can be taken anywhere in the back of the

car, offering a compact alternative to traditional sport dinghies. Easy to

assemble, it’s on the water in just 25 minutes. 

With the launch of the Tiwal 3 ten years ago, Tiwal helped make dinghy

sailing available to all. The Tiwal 3 is a compact, versatile, easy-to-use,

boomless sailing dinghy that has opened up access to a wide audience.

More than 2,000 Tiwals are now sailing in some 50 countries. 

With the launch of the racing version Tiwal 3R, the manufacturer is now

targeting a more experienced public looking for sensations, performance,

technical features and compactness. 

Marion Excoffon, the boat’s designer: “It took over two years to develop this

boat. The timescale can be explained by the enthusiasm of the testers, which

made us more and more ambitious! But the constraints and forces induced

by the power of the new rig have obliged us to modify the structure and hull

quite significantly, as well as the rudder and the daggerboard. This is a new

Tiwal, but one that retains the DNA of all our boats. The Tiwal 3R offers an

unprecedented mix of supercharged fun with unmatched practicality.” 


The mix chosen by the R&D team makes the Tiwal 3R a powerful and

sporty sailboat, but also one that’s technically and physically accessible.

Emmanuel Bertrand, President and Co-founder: “The Tiwal 3R’s

performance is close to that of rigid-hulled sailing dinghies, but it’s easier

to access. It planes quickly. Its power allows it to play with the water, ride

the waves, and make long runs with fast, consistent speed. It’s a pleasure

to get the boat going in the groove and to fine-trim the rig for optimal

The boat gets its power from the rig. For the sails (7.2sqm or 6.2sqm / 77sq

ft or 67 sq ft), the R&D team and North Sails went for a laminated fabric from offshore racing. The mast and boom are 90% carbon, contributing to the responsiveness of the boat. All the sail controls return to the helmsman on each side of the boat and offer a great finesse for trimming. The boat is also light, with a total weight of 55kg / 121 lbs. 

The Tiwal 3R’s inflatable hull gives the sailing dinghy an amazing rigidity, with its fusion material in conjunction with the aluminum exoskeleton. The daggerboard and rudder are made in composite material, and highlight the overall rigidity of the boat. 

The result? A behavior similar to that of a rigid boat, while keeping its compact functionality for transport. Marion Excoffon: “Close your eyes and you can compare it to a rigid-hulled dinghy. Open them, it fits in 2 bags!”

A family-run business, Tiwal designs and manufactures inflatable and

super inflated boats! These high-end products allow you to sail either

at sea and or a mountain lake. 

At the origin of Tiwal there is the tenacious character of Marion

Excoffon, industrial designer. When her father refused to lend her

his sailboat, she decided to make her own! Her determination and

desire to make the pleasure of sailing accessible to all have given birth

to a range of new generation inflatable sailing dinghies that can be

assembled in 10 to 25 minutes, can be transported in small cars or on

board cruising boats. They are stowed in bags and can be enjoyed by

kids as well as grown-ups. 

Sailing a Tiwal is about more than just a day on the water: it’s an

expedition! This is the pleasure of fun and sporty sailing; it is also about

moments to be shared with family or friends.
