Established in 1854, the Baglietto shipyard specializes in the construction of new planing aluminum yachts between 35-50m in length, and steel and aluminum displacement superyachts above 35m and the MV line (chase boats of 13m and 19m). Baglietto’s shipbuilding activities further include professional refit and repair services, as well as the construction of military vessels under the Baglietto Navy brand. In 2012, the shipyard entered a new era when it was acquired by the Gavio Group, a leading industrial conglomerate active in a wide range of synergetic sectors, ranging from toll motorways concessions and civil engineering to logistics, transportation and information technology. The group also owns the CCN and Bertram yacht brands. Covering an area of more 35,000sqm overlooking the Gulf of La Spezia, a strategic region for superyacht traffic in the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Baglietto shipyard has recently undergone extensive modernization in an ongoing multimillion euro reconstruction program involving both its production and administrative facilities. Equipped with a 700-ton travellift, deep-water dockage, two new construction halls for yachts up to 65m, the shipyard is able to build 3-4 new vessels each year. In addition to the existing quays, at the end of 2017, another two docks of 85m were added, that could also be covered at a later stage, providing space for 12 vessels at any one time.
