Tiwal 3: For Those Addicted to Sailing

Tiwal 3 is a small sailing dinghy that comes in a kit, which means that you can put it together and start sailing after only 20 minutes. This inflatable sailing dinghy is meant for one adult person but I believe it could be safe enough for one adult and two smaller kids, since its transport capacity is up to 200 kg.
