WINDWARD BOATWORKS

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.

We are proud to support the Spring Lake YC, the Butterfly sailboat class and the Western Michigan Yachting Association. Have a great regatta sailors from your friends at Windward Boatworks.

Changing with the times

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.
