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 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

What a starting line

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.

All we can say is wow. A great day over in White Lake Michigan.
Yes we had a good turnout of boats and the conditions built through
the day. This is the Crystal Corner where the Crystal Lake Butterfly’s
were staging. Lots of new boats and new gear.

Butterfly’s coming to you

Butterfly’s are leaving just about daily as we continue to
get boats out and on the lakes. It has for sure been a very
interesting summer with all that is going on with the different
supply chain challenges. Remember Butterfly Nationals are
just weeks away.

Lotta Butterfly

What a great place to sail at the Missouri YC on Lake Lotawanna.
This new Butterfly sailboat should enjoy it.

Let’s try a Barnett 1400 in Navy Blue

What an awesome looking Barnett 1400 with the cool
jib kit setup.This was done with navy sides and we have also
added wood grab rails which looks really good. There is lots
of summer left get sailing!
