The Baia B50 attained legendary status in the 80′s as one of the most successful hulls of that decade. It has 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
This particular example is fitted with the reliable and powerful MAN V12 1100hp engines on Arneson drives, providing storming 55 knot performance, and she has been recently refitted by her current owner. The styling and interior design is still looking contempory and modern.
Her Central London berth is available for transfer, so she makes an ideal "Pied a Terre" for anyone looking for a boat for partying and living aboard while working in London.
