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

Butterfly sailboat on the Bay

What a great way to spend your summer on the bay. Tooling around on a Butterfly sailboat exploring every beach and harbor.

Now That’s Cool

It’s about time to finally have the right bailer in a Barnett 1400. Wait till you try this.

Duck duck duck BOAT!

Congratulations to the winner of this duck skiff at the St John’s Catholic Church picnic. We hope you have many happy seasons of duck hunting in this fine skiff.

Trailer wheels spinning

This beautiful Butterfly sailboat is going to the blue waters in Michigan. We have been weekly on the road delivering all over and supporting the Butterfly class and fleets over in Michigan and beyond this summer. There is a lot of Butterfly sailboat season left so don’t miss out on it.

Double Butterfly Champaign

Your 2021 Western Michigan Yachting Association Butterfly Champion Nyle Eggert who also happens to be your 2021 Butterfly National Champion as well. What a year for Nyle. We can not forget Max who also had a great season as well and finished up in second place as well for the WMYA regatta. It’s great to be an Eggert!!

One sharp looking Butterfly sailboat!

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.

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.

Butterfly Sailboat season still going strong!

They are lining the beaches in Crystal, getting ready to regatta in Spring Lake.
Boats going to Leland, Lotawana, Grand Rapids. Butterfly sailboats are moving
and shaking!


2021 Inland 20 National Championships are being moved
to Lake Wawasee. Something about the fact that K Bolles
is going to throw the biggest party ever? It is closer to the
great state of Wisconsin? Maybe it is because I am bringing
my own boat to the event. The truth will come out!

Barnett 1400 season has started!

Another Barnett 1400 is getting ready to hit the beach. The jib option makes this sailboat just so much more
fun for you and your friends. Don’t wait get yours ordered
