Baglietto shipyard boasts a long history which began in 1854 in Varazze, Italy, where Pietro Baglietto started his activity 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 boats and in 1906 he achieved one of his most outstanding record: the launch of ‘Giuseppina’, the biggest cruising motoryacht, whose length reached 22,6 meters – with a combustion engine ever built before in Italy. During the same period, another record was achieved: the construction of the very first prototype of an hydrofoil ever built in the world.

The eighties represented the era of aluminium: Baglietto accepted this new challenge owing to the consolidated construction experience achieved by the yard in military, naval and aeronautical boat construction. The use of various kinds of aluminium allowed to go back to soft and round-shaped lines which started to characterise the overall Baglietto production in those years and in the years to come. Being the pioneer in the construction of aluminium vessels, in the eighties Baglietto yard set a brand new beginning in the naval sector starting to build superyachts. Since now, the mission of Baglietto has never changed: making the biggest dream become real, redefining every day prestige and innovation creating tailor made ships to each ship owners’ dreams.

On the basis of this long-lasting success, the co-operation between Baglietto yard and Francesco Paszkowski has become insofar an inseparable combination looking ahead on to contemporaneity and on to new projects aiming to revitalise once again the Seagull Brand, proudly owned by Gavio Group since 2012. Since 1854, the ‘’seagull’’ on Baglietto’s logo is a symbol throughout the nautical world. Today it represents the new shipyard’s drive towards the future.
