Yachts International - - The Bitter End -

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.
