The ngalawa is a traditional, double-outrigger canoe of the swahili people living in Zanzibar and the Tanzanian coast. It is usually 5–6 m long and has two outriggers, a centrally-placed mast (often inclining slightly towards the prow) and a single triangular sail. It is used for short distance transport of goods or people, as well as a coastalfishing boat. It can be classified as a variation of another common type of swahili canoe known as mtumbwi.
