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

Red, Red, Red

What is there not to like about a Badger Red Butterfly!
This summer we are seeing all new colors and different
designs. It is good to be in Butterfly season!

Barnett 1400 plus

Most people only know the Barnett 1400 as having a single sail. There is a jib option as well. Over the years it has kind of grown
old and need an update. Here is our new version which is mighty
cool. Thanks Harken for the awesome jib leads.

Ready for a workout!

Our newest addition to our paddle sport line of boats hit the water. We
love it when you send us your photo’s keep them coming.

As blue as the water!

This new Butterfly sailboat is ready to hit the blue water in your
backyard. Don’t wait too long as production is about filled up.

Push, Paddle or Scull

A project that has been a long time in the works and
is seeing the finishing touches. Everyone needs one
of these for a day of touring and exercise.

Staring at Transoms

It is always better to be looking back at bows then staring at transoms!
We can help you with that.

It’s Original

One of the original colors of the Butterfly sailboat was this
buttercream yellow. It was a favorite of the Dallas fleet through
the years. I bet you did not know that this year marks the 60th
anniversary of the Butterfly sailboat class. Wow!

Butterfly sailboat solstice!

Today marks the first day of winter and the shortest
day of sunlight all year. So we felt a little Butterfly
sailboat sunshine would be a great call today. No
mellow yellow here just happy happy bright yellow
Butterfly sailboat glow.

Waiting for Santa

The beauty of the straight’s during the winter. Of
course we are waiting for a red sleigh to show up
and help this whole delivery process, but for now
we will enjoy the beauty of Butterfly sailboat country.
Thanks Michigan we know you love your
Butterfly sailboat!
