About the Boat The Bridges Point 24 has been described as knowing the difference between large and small waves. This sloop-rigged sailboat is quick, easy to sail, safe, and spirited. The daysailer can be comfortably sailed single-handedly, or is ideal for a family or small crew. Whether putting it through its paces at the annual BP24 regatta or taking a peaceful cruise along the coast, the BP24 is strong, elegant, and ready to respond.
Designed in 1984 by Joel White of Brooklin, Maine, the Bridges Point 24 was built by Wade Dow, also of Brooklin. The original molds have been purchased by Bill Wright, and the BP24 is again in production, now at the Bridges Point Boat Company on Mount Desert Island. Wade Dow will assist in the construction of the first model. The classic look and feel Wade achieved is retained with a new emphasis on modern methods and equipment like infusion molding and electric auxiliaries. Built to the exacting standards of the original BP24 with the technology and efficiency available today, the BP24 excels in a breeze and will keep you dry up to 15 knots.
Both the daysailer and the weekender combine wholesome, traditional looks with reliable, joyful performance.
