Baglietto shipyard boasts of a long history which began in 1854 in Varazze, Italy, where Pietro Baglietto started building small fishing boats and dinghies in the back-yard of his house. After a few years he switched his activity towards the nautical leisure sector, building in 1888 a pleasure vessel for Pope Leone XIII. At the beginning of the 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 in the world.
The eighties represented the era of aluminium: Baglietto accepted this new challenge. The use of various kinds of aluminium allowed the yard to design feminine and round-shaped lines which became a signature of Baglietto’s production. Being a pioneer in the construction of aluminium vessels, Baglietto yard introduced the naval sector to start build superyachts. The mission of Baglietto 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.
