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.
An awesome 3.7m Sailing Dinghy, design by Bruce Farr. A 12 foot one person sailing dinghy (skiff) with a trapeze and planing hull. Butler Boats are now manufacturing this amazing boat in GRP and FRP.

What our Customers say...
Its great to be able to talk to my boatbuilder and get what I want.
Butler Boats? Excellent boats, excellent service!
A uniquely personal service.
It is a pleasure to buy a boat that has been so lovingly crafted.
That is why I have now had two boats built by Dave Butler and his team. I have had immense pleasure in seeing the boats gradually emerge from the deceptively effortless craftsmanship, and I have totally enjoyed sailing Etty Ketty (Miracle 4050 - the best Miracle ever made in my opinion) for the last two years. Judging by her looks I am sure that my new boat, a Streaker, will be just as good, and sadly, I will be the same as ever.
Thanks to the team at Butler boats for putting up with me again, and always making me feel welcome. "
Preparations are well under way for this years’ RYA Dinghy Show, we have boats to exhibit on the Streaker, Heron and Miracle stands this year.
Having invested in our own stand for the past couple of years we are happy to take a step back and devote our time solely to the Association stands, this means we will be on hand to discuss all things Streaker, Miracle, Heron and you never know possibly Farr 3.7 if you can catch us!
The opportunities made available to us by working so closely with the associations is great for all parties and we are really looking forward to a great show this year, the boats we will be exhibiting are well on course and the final touches are being made to really present the boats in the most professional yet cared for way possible.
Our approach has always been to show what we do best, provide competitive dinghies for a wide range of sailor in an encompassing way which hopefully gives our customers a foundation from which they can enjoy their brand new boat, their recently refurbished or repaired boats and/or any advice or direction needed.
We are delighted to be making great strides with the Farr 3.7, our new UK Treasurer Myles Mence is flying off the South Coast in his Composite Farr whenever possible and looks to be a real catch for the UK Farr community, as always the committee are well behind the class and are on hand to discuss the boat if required. We currently have our second Composite Farr under construction and hope to have the boat out on the water shortly, check out: yachtsandyachting.com and facebook.com For the latest Farr 3.7 news, musings and all topics Farr 3.7!
We’ll be investing heavily in the Miracle and Heron again this year and we’ll keep you posted with the latest news regarding these two magnificent classes throughout the year.
We look forward to seeing you at the show!
