1974 Barnett Butterfly
Length: 12' 2"
Beam: 4' 6"
Sail Area 75 sq. '
This pretty little boat is a perfect choice for a junior or beginning
sailor. It also has enough sail area for an adult to have a ball when the
wind pipes up. It is particularly fun and easy to plane off the wind.
Unlike Lasers and Sunfish, it features a stayed mast with a large mainsail
that is raised by means of a halyard. This facilitates fast and easy
rigging if you can leave the boat near the water with the mast stepped. The
mast separates into 2 sections to enable easy transport. The boat is in
nice condition. The sail is still fairly crisp and should be competitive in
most fleets. The aluminum rudder and oak tiller are new. The mahogany
centerboard and teak hiking rails were recently faired and refinished with
spar varnish. The spars are true. The trailer is exceptionally sturdy. It
was recently sanded and refinished with epoxy enamel. The tires are good
and the bearings were recently re-packed. The wiring harness is new and the
lights work well. New custom fitted bunks were recently installed and
fitted with new carpeting. They should help keep the hull in it's present
good condition. There are no soft spots on the hull or deck. Sailboats of
this length do not require registration or titles in Texas. I will furnish
a bill of sale for the shop built trailer.
