The company began as Mericraft and started production by building small wooden boats in Naples, Italy, more than forty years ago. Their experience quickly grew; the quality of their product has become such a byword that they now operate in the USA, France, Greece, England, Spain, Norway, Ukraine, and Turkey. Today, Baia Yachts has a reputation as one of the most luxurious and sophisticated all-fiberglass yachts in the world.

And not content to rest on their laurels, they have raised the standard even higher with the new generation Baia B50, a pure open yacht with lavish features and innovations that provide enviable comfort for its lucky owners.

The first generation Baia B50 attained legendary status in the 80′s as one of the most successful hulls of that decade. It had a sleek feline design, was solidly built, and fast. It quickly earned its place in motor boating history by winning prestigious competitions like the star-studded Venezia-Monte Carlo Rally Raid in 1990.

As impressive as the original was, the new generation Baia B50 is even better. It boasts of new, smarter features and equipment designed to satisfy even the most discriminating yacht lovers.

Standing in the cockpit of a Baia B50 open yacht is one of the most exhilarating experiences one can have in the open seas. The wraparound carbon fiber windshield heightens the yacht’s dashing appearance even as it enhances comfort during navigation. The side vents are reminiscent of those installed on sports cars. And the ergonomic lights are beautiful as they are functional.

Stepping into the Baia B50′s inner chambers, the senses are greeted by luxurious decors and furnishings that enhance relaxation and convenience. The living area has large windows that provide ample natural lighting during the day. After hours of enjoyable cruising, you can unwind at an elegant bar that separates the gallery from the living room.

The posh master cabin has large side windows and a separate bathroom and shower. A VIP cabin equipped with spacious double bed and private bath will impress even the most meticulous guest. A smaller cabin with its own folding bed and bathroom can accommodate a crew member or another guest.
