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

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.

Don’t call it come back!

The original Butterfly sailboat blue that light blue we all know and love, is the hot color it seems for the 2022 Butterfly sailboat run so far. Now who would have thought that was the color of choice but hey there are a lot of great looking Butterfly sailboats sporting that color on lakes all over the USA. More blue to you!

Crystal Blue

It’s never a bad day to be stopping in Crystal Lake with a new Butterfly sailboat. It’s even better when it is a bunch of Butterfly sailboats. What a beauty!

Going West an I-80 getaway

Where will we go next? It seems we have been going everywhere it seems with Butterfly sailboats this summer and fall. Do not wait to get in the build cue so get ready for next summers fun!

He started his own Butterfly fleet!

Just because Butterfly sailing season is winding down doesn’t mean it is time to stop building your fleet. This is just in from one of our customer who is getting the whole family into the Butterfly sailboat family. I can not wait to see when the first trophy race starts. Have fun guys with your Butterfly sailboats.

More then a pretty face!

Did you know that not only do we build new Butterfly sailboats but we also work with customers to bring out the best in their older Butterfly sailboats as well. We can make your older Butterfly look better by installing new rubrail, buff outs, hardware replacement and factory gelcoat work as well. When it comes to these services don’t settle for anything less. We offer full maintenance support for your Butterfly sailboat give us a call.

Barnett 1400’s will travel

We are still moving sailboats all around be it Barnett 1400’s or Butterfly’s, duck boats or Inland 20’s. People are still out on the water. There are some great prices now on new boats and the used Butterfly sailboat market is booming so don’t miss out.

Add a little color to your life

Did you know that your Butterfly sailboat can come with a multi color sail? We offer many choices with sails from all white to multi colored Butterfly sails. If you want to freshen up your Butterfly sailboat why not add a fresh new colored sail. For those looking for the all white sails we have those in stock as well.

Your 2021 Inland 20 champion is

Congratulations to Joe and Cole Ewing from Indian Lake for winning their first National Championship. The conditions were super light air and the direction changes were extreme for the first two days. The final day saw two races and a new champion crowned. Thanks Wawasee Yacht Club for hosting a great event.
