New Boat Showcase
It’s boat show season, and this year there is a range of new boats hitting the shows from Newport to Miami. From a fun inflatable dinghy and a foiling racer to comfy cruisers, our editors share some of the exciting new designs.
Making its debut in Annapolis at the U.S. Sailboat Show is the redesigned inflatable Tiwal 3 folding sailboat. This compact sailboat makes a great sailing tender or is easily transported in the trunk of a car. Stored in its two bags, you can take the Tiwal 3 anywhere without a trailer. It is easily assembled in 20 minutes without special tools using clips and Velcro. The secret is the redesigned folding framework that allows the sailor to sit outboard for better control. The Tiwal 3 is available with either a 56- or a 75-square-foot single sail.
