1974 Barnett Butterfly

  • Length: 12' 2"
  • Beam: 4' 6"
  • Sail Area 75 sq. '
  • Price $885.00

    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.
