"A late model BP 24 extensively customized by expert Nova Scotia boat builders (Tern Boat Works). This is not a standard BP 24. The fit, finish and extras are comparable to a Hershoff Alerion 26 or Pisces. Among the refinements are a solid curved teak cockpit seats(with ample lockers and shelves) and sole, forward mounted 14 hp 2015 Nannie Diesel, foredeck anchor locker, custom bronze hardware and deck hatch. The BP 24 was designed by the late Joel White of Brooklyn Boat Yard and built by Wade Dow, who crafted this hull and deck prior to the installation of the custom interior and cockpit".
Enjoy sailing comfort on beautifully varnished teak cockpit seating. Selftailing winches and Harken furling head sail make single handing a breeze. There is a nice 2015 Raymarine electronics package for navigation.
Presently stored inside for easy viewing.

The cockpit differs from the standard BP24 arrangement in that the cockpit sole is considerably deeper than the factory built boats making for a very secure and comfortable feel when aboard. There are a manually and electric bilge pumps. When not sailing there has a custom canvas boom tent with built in solar charger that not only keeps rain water out of the cockpit but also covers and protects the on-deck varnished brightwork with only the varnished Teak toerails exposed to the elements.
