have been produced as semi-custom, high performance yachts in Italy since 1961. Originally under the company name Mericraft, they are now known as Cantieri di Baia. Baia’s shipyard is found at the Gulf of Pozzuoli, near Naples, Italy; this area has been an ancient Roman harbor dating back to centuries B.C. The facilities are home to a number of integrated companies serving Baia exclusively. Baia has consistently been an Italian leader in adapting to advanced technologies. Baia started to create yacht cruisers with a rounded glass windshield as part of a convertible hard top offering. The hull construction process at Baia ensures the even distribution of the laminates and their associated mechanical attributes. The current fleet of Baia manufactured yachts range from 48 to 82 feet in length. The shipyard of Baia has always been known for its boats' distinctive styling. Wraparound windscreens and long, convex foredecks were a design signature, which still gives the older boats in the range a distinctive, original look. In 2014 came something new in design - the Baia One with nearly 43 feet of spiky, new-edge attitude. Now there is the spectacular Baia 70 Italia. Gone are the sweeping curves, replaced by planes, arcs, and angles in an aggressive, sleek, ultra-modern style that is utterly distinctive. Baia has a reputation as a builder of no-compromise, high-performance sportboats.
