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

Glen, Leland, Torch, Crystal, Spring, and Grand Rapids

We are coming to you soon! We continue to hit the road and bring new Butterfly sailboats to your home lake and the list grows. It has been a crazy busy winter building Butterfly sailboats so now we start the other half of the equation. The wheels on the trailer are now spinning more then ever. We see lots of snow but we know its always a good time for a Butterfly sailboat.

Spar week Butterfly sailboat style!

We have been putting together mast packs for new Butterfly sailboats going out on delivery. You can’t catch wind without mast and booms. It is looking like a crazy busy summer of Butterfly sailboats so don’t wait to order.

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 !
