Baia New Web Site

The front line shipyard of the city of Naples, Baia presents it's newly updated world wide virtual showroom i.e. website. This is the sixth version web update for this Naples Italian proud company. Founded in 1961 as Mericraft in Naples, up until the Capasso family takes ownership of the company in 1972 after there 27 meter sailing yacht refit is not completed, who rename it to Cantieri di Baia - Mericraft.  After this some legendary models are born in Naples; from the Pascia an Italian gozzo which is also the first fiberglass hull coming from Baia featuring an innovative hydraulic cockpit table which transforms a settee in sunpad, the Jeroboam, the B81 and finally the B33.  The Baia B33 in 1980 will mark the first production use for the surface drives propulsion system by Arneson on a production boat.  In 1983 Baia launched one of its classics the B50 with a hull shape designed by legendary racer Don Aronow, with its under water shape very much dedicated to the surface drives. Three years pass and the B60 one of the Worlds largest open sport yachts of the time is also launched.  A pursuit in larger size will take six years to come in 1992 with the B80 launched in that year.  In the same year Baia builds a one off 105 flybridge super yacht for US client Ivana Trump, which is still as at today the Naples yard largest build. Another Baia innovation was the removable hard top system presented in 1998 with the 48 Flash.  Baia has also always given great emphasis to competitions winning the following; 1990 Venezia - Monte Carlo with the B50, Viareggio - Monte Carlo - Viareggio in 2007 63 Azzurra and 2008 54 Aqua, and Powerboat Endurance Supersport Class World title in 2010 with a sponsored Donzi Z-38. The current Baia range is composed of eleven models, three of which, the 63 Onda and 26 and 30 Sevolution are still in project stages and divided into three ranges; Coupe with six models, Open with with three, and Sevolution with two. The entry level is the 43 One, while the most recent is the B50. Current flagship is the much acclaimed One Hundred. Baia new web site is available only in Italian language and takes you around with the following buttons; Home, Il Cantiere, Showroom, Racing, Eco, Servizi, e Contatti.
