The Baja has 18-inch tubes that allow for a steady ride at speeds of 20 mph or over. The Baja 11ft 9in model, like all Newport Vessels inflatable boats, is constructed with triple-layered 1,100 denier PVC. This thick material is the same as used by white water rafts. We also use an extra layer of polyester for support on our dinghies that allows for extra flexibility and is resistant to tearing and tension. Our inflatable boats are virtually indestructible that can be run into docks, dragged up to shore, or any normal activity when boating. The size of this boat allows it to be matched with a high-speed motor but also can be used as a simple tender.

Why Buy The Baja

The Baja 11ft 9inch model is a great inflatable as a large tender or an all-around multi-purpose dinghy. The length along with the large 18-inch diameter tubes create a stable ride that can allow you to reach speeds over 20 mph; as well as make smooth turns. The compact, precision flooring system along with the high-pressure keel create a firm foundation that makes for a comfortable ride while moving or just floating still.

  • How Do I Assemble My Inflatable Boat?

    Assembly of your Newport Vessels inflatable boat will take about 15-20 minutes (especially the first time). Please view the above video and the below steps to aid in the assembly and installation of the aluminum framed wooden floor boards. This part of the process will take about 5 minutes by using the following steps.

    STEP A: Properly place Newport Vessels inflatable boat floor boards inside the boat in the correct order and attach the inflatable boat floor boards at the joint locations. Watch video above for proper technique & floorboard alignment instructions.

    STEP B: Conjoin each individual floor together by inserting each floor boat (in the correct order) into the appropriate bracket. Once again, watch the above video for proper technique & inflatable boat floor board alignment instructions.

    STEP C: Now that the inflatable boat floor board panels are properly and even placed within the boat (and the joints are properly connected) grab all the stringers and prepare for the aluminum stringer insertion. The longer side of the stinger is to be placed against the floor of the inflatable boat (leaving the more narrow/thin portion of the stringer facing upward. The motion to set the stingers in place is a rolling motion (not a sliding motion). The stingers are designed to roll into place and to secure snugly and not move. Watch video above for proper Newport Vessels inflatable boat stringer installation.

    STEP D: Repeat the above steps for each individual aluminum stringer so that each joint of the wood panel floors are properly secured in place. The aluminum framed wood panel flooring provides an extremely rigid and secure flooring system for your boat. Wood flooring is recommended for multi passenger uses, dogs, standing, fishing, and all versatile inflatable boating applications. Watch the video above for proper technique & floor board alignment instructions.

Wonderful boat

It was amazing how simple and fast I could put the boat together. This Baha with wood/alu floor replaces my zodiac with inflatable floor, what a difference!

Newport Vessels dinghy

Just received my new Baja inflatable. Ordered on Friday, arrived Wednesday just on time to set my mooring lines. This is my second Newport dinghy. First was a Catalina which I kept 7 years before it went to a friend. Boat never had any air leak even in MI winters. Very satisfied.
