TRINGA, the first ever “roadable boat”, just authorized to drive on highways in France.
Perros-Guirec / France, April 19th, 2017 - TRINGAboat is launching the construction of the prototype of the first recreational “roadable boat”, named TRINGA, that is a disruptive innovation on the global recreational boat market.
TRINGA just fulfilled its first success in terms of road regulation. As an outcome of the intense innovation process undertaken by the TRINGAboat company to the French highway administration, “roadable boat” are now legally authorized to drive on highways as recreational or rescue amphibious boat (order issued on January 6th 2017 by the prime minister and order issued on March 10th 2017 by the environment and internal affairs ministers).
TRINGAboat also announced being at the completion of a fund-raising of 700 K€ to fund the prototype construction in 2017, and its presentation to the public before the end of the year. First commercial deliveries will begin from mid-2018.
TRINGAboat is a French start-up founded in 2011 by Guirec DANIEL. The mission of TRINGAboat is to propose access to water to a marina quality standard, to private mansions located in any seaside city, especially those which are land-locked, by acquiring the first “roadable boat” TRINGA.
By design, TRINGA drives on highways by itself and legally, gets into and out of the water by itself, is all-terrain, and sails the sea like the best conventional boats. Please watch video at bottom of “concept” page at www.tringaboat.fr.
Therefore, sailing is not a concern any longer, even in areas where harbor facilities are fully saturated or nonexistent. This way, TRINGAboat has invented the concept of a “roadable boat” for recreational use, which has been disclosed through its internet site in April 2013, and presented at the Nautic Paris boat show in December 2013 and 2014.
The “roadable boat” TRINGA, entirely designed and built in France, is meant for the worldwide market, and borrows a proprietary technology protected by patents issued worldwide.
TRINGAboat is a young company established in 2011 at Perros-Guirec / France (22) to undertake the project of:
Designing a road compliant amphibious recreational boat (terminated)
Build the prototype (2017 - 2018)
Sell and launch commercial production : mid 2020
TRINGAboat contracts the fabrication to a set of contractors each of them known for their skills in their field.
