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
Windward Boatworks donated this fine custom WMYA Butterfly for this years Championship. There is still time to get your tickets so contact the SLYC for details. 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.
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.
Thank you’s to all that attend the Butterfly Nationals and to those that helped run it, put it all together and keep it all together. A big
Thanks to Chris and Liz Oertel at White Lake for heading it all up,
and making it happen. So its time to get ready for the Western’s at
Spring Lake. If you need more Butterfly sailboats here you go.
Congratulations Nyle Eggert on winning your first National Championship. The trophy now goes back to Spring Lake after a few years in Crystal Lake.
Thank you for sailing our equipment!
