Windward Boatworks is your complete source for Butterfly Sailboats & Parts. We have been building Butterfly sailboats since 2006. Butterfly sailboats are large enough to accommodate several people, fast enough for serious competition, light enough for launching by one person, and virtually maintenance free. The Butterfly has a strong National Organization and holds annual National Championship regattas. From a cottage boat to serious one-design racer – the Butterfly does it all.
What’s New with Windward Boatworks and Butterfly Sailboats
Every year Windward Boatworks runs a fall discount which allows you to get the best pricing on a new Butterfly sailboat or Barnett 1400 sailboat. This special pricing only happens for two weeks a year. So if you are thinking about a new sailboat now is the absolute best time to get your order in for a spring 2022 delivery. If you are also considering a colored deck for your new boat we will only be taking colored deck orders up until January 1st after which we will switch to strictly white decks until the next model year starts. This will allow us to keep even bigger inventory and also speed up delivery times. Don’t miss out get your order in!

To say that 2021 has been an interesting year is an understatement, we have been navigating shortages of materials and huge increases in prices for materials all summer long. With that being the case we will be seeing a price increase on new boats as of August first for the 2022 models. There will also be a new format for boats which are ordered in custom colors so if you want a custom color get your order in sooner then later.
