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

Summer loving sunshine!

Summer is trying to get going and that means get the Butterfly Sailboat ready to go. This hot rod yellow one will be sailing on Reed’s Lake this summer. But don’t wait to get you your Butterfly Sailboat up and running for the season. We have all the parts in stock and ready to ship.

Better bring your A+ game

It should be a fast season of Butterfly Sailboat sailing down at Lake Lotawana this summer. Their fleet has a great time together and they are fast in Butterfly’s and now even faster. Have a great season of racing.

Texas yellow

It must be the year of the yellow Butterfly. This is the soft yellow or fighting lady yellow that you saw every time you went to Dallas to the White Rock Club. It was referred to as the Texas yellow by the past builders. It is a sweet color of a Butterfly to say the least.

We are hitting the road!

Grand Rapids is quickly becoming quite the Butterfly hotspot. Keep going and building your fleet!

Butterfly Time!

Spring is on the way! At least that is what the Butterfly’s are saying.

Testing our Skimmers

New Skimmer 45 iceboat and a new skimmer sail. We went out and tested how everything looked and worked. It of course worked as expected and all had a great day on the ice.

Today it’s box with lid

A special box made for Skeeter iceboat sails. The split lid and long length allow for the massive iceboats sails to fit in without being folded. Now hit the ice.

Box and ship

It has been an exciting few weeks as we continue to build up supplies of Skimmer 45 iceboats and parts. The new iceboats have been flying out the door and we have been working hard on refining the process so your new skimmer arrives in pristine condition. We have started a second batch of iceboats as well as the orders continue to come in. We will hopefully be having a Skimmer 45 iceboat event in the next month or so when we get the right ice conditions. Keep skimming if you have ice!
