This pretty little Butterfly sailboat (for sale by original owner) 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 and includes a blue chip sail (number: 7745) which is still fairly crisp, all rigging, two-piece mast, boom, downhaul assembly, hiking strap, mahogany dagger board and tiller assembly with hiking extension. The boat has a few scratches on the hull and topside but is in good condition; there are no soft spots on the hull or deck and looks great. The trailer is included!
