Baglietto Yachts was founded in 1854 by Pietro Baglietto and originated from a village near the Port of Genova called Varazze. Later in the 19th Century, Baglietto began to build cargo boats, ferry boats and fishing boats, and was instrumental in the introduction of the internal-combustion engine.
During the early 19th Century Baglietto began constructing racing and pleasure boats, through which they won world speed records for many years, promoting the Baglietto name. The two World Wars created much demand for military boats to be constructed and this allowed Baglietto to become a specialist in this field. Nowadays Baglietto Yachts manufacture luxury sailing boats and motor yachts. The Baglietto Yachts shipyard is based in La Spezia, building yachts from aluminium and steel up to 60 m in length, each one a custom project.
The new start of the Baglietto brand can also be seen in the renewed lay out of its shipyard, which has been completely redesigned. A 32.000 sq m area, with a 700 tons travel lift fit for the haulage of ships up to 60 m long, to which we must add 2 carriages of equivalent capacity. The shipyard will be able to welcome up to 12 ships at the same time, thanks to its new covered basin for ships up to 120 m long, and a covered shelter for the building of new ships up to 55 m long, together with the already existing docks.
