It can be said that BUTTERFLY began her first life in 1925 on the drawing board of W. Starling Burgess as the R-Boat ELLEN that was built George S. Lawley Sons. ELLEN was actively and successfully raced out of Marblehead, MA before being sold to her next owner who renamed her COTTON BLOSSOM. Under that name this Burgess / Lawley collaboration had enjoyed a very successful racing career first in Long Island sound and then (under yet another owner) Lake Erie where she finished out her days. Before passing to that big boat yard in the sky ELLEN / COTTON BLOSSOM made one final contribution to yachting history by being selected as the fastest R-Boat in the Cleveland fleet and used as the plug to create a mold for a new generation of R-Boats built in fiberglass.
Using this mold of ELLEN / COTTON BLOSSOM, boat builders Verba and Malm of Rocky River (Cleveland), Ohio created BUTTERFLY and five other R-Boats that continued the legacy of ELLEN / COTTON BLOSSOM with winning performances in the highly competitive Great Lakes R-Boat fleets.
BUTTERFLY made her way east from the Great Lakes and now sails out of Center Harbor (Brooklin) Maine almost every day from early spring to late in the fall. She has been restored and transformed by her current owner into a slightly more domesticated version of the R-Boat with her emphasis now being to provide her current and future owners with a spirited (yet easy to handle) day sailor / cruiser with just enough in the way of accommodations to allow for the occasional night or two aboard. This being said BUTTERFLY retains her full rig and racing capabilities for those of competitive spirit.
