Butler Boats composite Miracle has a foam reinforced vinyl ester, epoxy hull teamed with timber superstructure. It features the new chute position and displays the Butler Boat trademark curved thwart. Epoxy coatings and fillets make the boat strong and down to minimum weight.
Butler Boats Streakers have an excellent reputation as lightweight and fast boats. We build fibreglass boats in foam reinforced plastic (FRP). All our fibreglass Streakers are built of FRP to add strength and stiffness, keeping weight to a minimum.
Our winning design is achieved by careful performance analysis, retaining strength and buoyancy as well as maximising comfort and space for the helm and crew. The new Heron – a truly versatile racing dinghy for all the family and competitors alike.

New FRP Streaker
We are pleased to unveil our New FRP Streaker*.
We have taken time to incorporate everything necessary to make this new design as competitive and comfortable as possible.
Noticeable changes include the seamless floor which is a now a very stiff 12mm thick, there is specifically formed block at the aft end of the cockpit floor which enables a 1 or 2 toe strap fit out with the option to add a small aft toe strap.
The gunwhale is now reinforced and has a wing which adds comfort when hiked out.
We have worked tirelessly to make the aesthetics of the boat in keeping with our composite and wooden Streakers, so you will find the curved thwart pleasing to the eye as well as all edges of the side decks are neat and not overly curved, preventing the 'bath-tub' effect!
Overall we are delighted with the outcome and are working hard to fulfil orders, with plenty more new ideas and innovations coming from The Boat House.
*The Streaker seen in the images is our prototype which we have been able to utilise to ensure all new boats are correct and reach the high standard we set here at Butler Boats

New Reduced Aft Tank Streaker
We at Butler Boats are delighted to unveil the first ever Composite Streaker with reduced Aft Tank.
Please take some time to view the images and please tell us what you think.
The reduced Aft Tank will enable you to place your boom and sails inside the cockpit with ease and especially for travelling purposes make things a lot easier.
With regard to fitting/adjusting the pintels and gudgeons, they are now within arm’s reach which makes the process a lot better from a boat builders point of view!
The Streaker has a more slender appearance yet holds the integrity of the original design.
