Baglietto shipyard boasts a long history dating back to 1854 in Varazze, Italy, where Pietro Baglietto started building small fishing boats and dinghies in his back-yard. After a few years he turned his attention towards the nautical leisure sector, building in 1888 a pleasure vessel for Pope Leone XIII. In the early twentieth century, Pietro Baglietto launched his first motor boat, and in 1906 the great launch of ‘Giuseppina’, was the biggest cruising motor yacht (22.6m) ever built in Italy. During the same period, another record was achieved: the construction of the very first prototype of a hydrofoil ever built.
The eighties were the era of aluminium: Baglietto rose to this new challenge. The use of various kinds of aluminium allowed the yard to design feminine and curved lines, which became the Baglietto signature. Being a pioneer in the construction of aluminium vessels, Baglietto yard entered the naval sector to start building superyachts. The shipyard’s mission has never changed, turning dreams into reality and redefining the standards of prestige and innovation. This has resulted in the creation of tailor-made vessels.
