"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." ~ Bridges Point Boat Company
Sunny Day has been significantly improved upon by French and Webb. The boat went through a significant refit where the hull was faired and repainted, the cockpit and diesel engine where removed, and a new electric motor and a full new teak cockpit where installed. These items have enhanced the design and make Sunny Day one of the nicest examples to these remarkable Bridges Point 24's.

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. Sunny Day features:
Propeller, Shaft and Through Hull Fittings
Sunny Day's cockpit was completely removed and replaced with a teak sole and teak bench seats giving her a classic and functional cockpit. This area features:
12/24 Volt DC System
