The Tiwal 2 is a 9’2 inflatable sailboat with a 60ft2 boomless sail design for maximum safety. It accommodates an adult and one child and is easily assembled and stored. Included are two storage bags that fit easily in the trunk of a car, on deck, in a camper, or in a locker onboard. Assemble in 15 minutes or less. The Tiwal 2 is incredibly lightweight and versatile in varying wind conditions.
The Tiwal 2 is assembled with its inflatable PVC hull, the mast base, and carbon mast, the rudder support, rudder, and dagger board. It features Harken blocks, a North Sales Dacron 60ft² sale, and anodized aluminum framework.
The Tiwal 3 inflatable sailboat combines a PVC hull, an aluminum frame, and a carbon mast to create an innovative design that delivers comparable seaworthiness of a traditional sailing dinghy. The Tiwal 3 is designed for adults and children alike, and accommodates up to two adults or two children and an adult. Stored in two convenient bags, simply pack your uninflated Tiwal and its aluminum framework in the trunk of your vehicle without the need for a trailer and head to the water. While not in use, discretely hide your sailboat in a small corner of the garage or a closet in the house. Never has sailing been so convenient and fun.
The PVC hull is fabricated from high-grade PVC and includes two separate pneumatic compartments. The sides and underside are reinforced for added durability. EVA foam deck pads prevent slipping and fatigue.
The aluminum frame is laser-machined, delivering a seamless design, fast assembly, and high quality. Its carbon mast responds quickly and withstands huge stresses under strong winds for maximum stability. Power and safety are provided by the North Sails boomless sail which is available in 56ft2 and 75ft2 sizes. All fittings are manufactured by Harken.
*List price advertises the Tiwal 3 with a 56-square-foot sail. Larger sails and upgraded options available at an additional price.
Ride the wind: A roller-furling, vertically battened mainsail provides lift, a retractable centerboard prevents lateral slip, and the larger amas tuck parallel against the rotomolded polyethylene hull for docking. Multiple hatches, on deck stowage and Vantage CT Seating encourage multi-day adventures, and the MirageDrive with Glide Technology offers paddle-free locomotion when the wind scatters, making it easy to get home. The “AI” is also an exceptional bluewater-capable fishing platform. Equip the accessory trampoline kit for extra space and walk-around capability.
The Snorkel protects your expensive sail from harsh ultraviolet light and the elements. It features a full-length zipper for easy storage. This is not intended for long term storage. Sails must be furled tightly for the snorkel to accommodate.
