About this Bridges Point 24


ASHLEY is a very nice example of the Bridges Point 24. Hull no. 81 of 83, designed by Joel White and built by Bridges Point Boat Yard in Brooklyn, ME. A popular and sought after classic daysailer, they are noted for their joy to sail from a large and generous cockpit. She has a unique open interior layout featuring comfortable port and starboard cushioned bench seats/V-berth. Currently commissioned in the water, and available for viewing.

Bridges Point 24 - History

The Bridges Point 24 was designed by Joel White in 1984 for Wade Dow. Wade was looking for a fiberglass daysailer he could put into production to fill the off-season when he wasn’t lobstering. Joel said it should be something beautiful to compete with the mass-produced boats then being built.

A few years later the plans were drawn, and soon the first BP24 was shown at the Newport Boat Trials. Wade is not a sailor, but when four 24-footers were sent out with their factory crews, Wade and a friend of his were the crew. Wade recalls that day: “We passed them all, all those professional sailors in their red pants and white shoes. It was entirely the boat’s fault–we sure had nothing to do with it. It was one of those special moments in my life I’ll never forget.”

Over the next 25 years, 80 Bridges Point 24's were built at the Bridges Point Boatyard in Brooklin by Wade, his son Forrest, and two other builders. 


The Bridges Point 24 is a hand-laid, with seven layers of fiberglass, full keel hull with attached rudder design with tiller steering. The hull is supported by structural girders and forward and lazarette bulkheads. Isabella has blue anti-fouling, grey boot-stripe, white topsides and a gold cove-stripe. The toe rail is varnished teak.
