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

So how busy is it?

It is this busy as we continue to ship boats everywhere with snow and without snow in the background. It is great to see different clubs getting new Butterfly sailboats for their fleets as well. More snow is coming and so are more Butterfly sailboats.

Butterfly sailboat = parts

The holiday came just in time for us as well as we got another big box of everything that is a Butterfly sailboat. It was shiny and also sparkled and we were glad to have them. So if you notice a part that you would see on your Butterfly sailboat it was probably in the box. Thank you one and all for making the Butterfly sailboat such a great class and sailboat!

Santa has landing lights

I bet you did not know that Santa has landing lights for all Butterfly sailboats being delivered for the holidays. Right after St Ignace these lights come on and guide us in for your Butterfly sailboats to make a grand display whether in the front yard, under the tree or in the garage.

Happy Holidays from all of us at Windward Boatworks !

The best Holiday Gift

Who doesn’t love a Harken ratchet for their Butterfly mainsheet. Every Butterfly sailboat has one do you?

Tis’ the season

It just seems like everything is Butterfly sailboat, Butterfly sailboat, and yes Butterfly sailboat. Thanks for all of your support this season. If you are looking for the ultimate holiday gift give us a call.

Butterfly sailboats go retro

Back in the day growing up I had one of these shirts and it was so cool. Well we are going retro with this Butterfly sailboat shirt and logo again. Look for our new Merch to be coming out soon.

The perfect Holiday Butterfly!

What’s your perfect Holiday Butterfly sailboat that you would like to get this season? Does that perfect Butterfly sailboat have stripes, is it a cool color? We can make your Butterfly sailboat all about you, pick the color and pick the sail.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are thankful this year for many things, our customers, being able to have regatta’s again, our families and all the people that help us to make great Butterfly sailboats, Barnett 1400’s and all our other boats. We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday and for these birds running behind our shop have a safe and warm holiday as well.

Wet snow and raining!

You just never know what you get when you cross the bridge on a Butterfly sailboat delivery. On this run to Crystal Lake we saw it all even the sun for a while on this trip. We still have new Butterfly’s going places and it keeps going on so where does the next batch of Butterfly sailboats go to next. We will keep you updated.

Don’t snub me

We all know what these are right? Butterfly snubber caps they be. Well we are glad to have received two boxes full of these bright shiny snubber caps in the mail last week. What a great thing to get because every Butterfly sailboat needs a pair of these. Whether you have an older Butterfly sailboat or are getting a new Butterfly sailboat you need these for sure.
