The history of the Baglietto shipyard, born around 1854 on the beaches of Varazze in the back of the house of Pietro Baglietto, its founder, is a story of passion. It is the passion of a family that, with commitment and determination, has built a legend that spans the history of a nation and knows how to adapt to historical, technological and market changes without the fear of innovation and, above all, renewal.
This is the story of a shipyard that started out as a sub-supplier to other local companies dedicated to building commercial vessels and that developed so rapidly that, by the end of the 19th century, was already known for its racing sails and transport ships, and in 1929 built La Spina, the first twelve-metre boat built in Italy, and in 1987 presented Adler, 35 metres long and capable of reaching over 36 knots of speed, the first megayacht in the contemporary conception of the term.
To celebrate the spectacle of the great nautical world that will take place in September with the boat shows in Cannes, Genoa and Monaco, Baglietto is ready to present its latest “creations on the blue”. At the Cannes Yachting Festival a world premiere will make its debut: Rush: a 42m custom superfast motoryacht” bearing the signature of Francesco Paszkowski and with interiors by Margherita Casprini, at the Genoa Boat Show, the focus will be on Bertram boats, the historic US sportfisherman brand, since 2015 owned by the Gavio family and part of the Baglietto group, while at the Monaco Boat Show the shipyard will present another world premiere: Enterprise, a 38m custom design by Paszkowski Design, which is highly innovative and for which a completely new platform has been developed with great potential to become the first of a long series.
For almost 170 years, Baglietto shipyards have been merging the best technological solutions with the most refined design choices to create yachts that are a true feather in the cap of Made in Italy.
