Baglietto Yachts represents 150 years of successful yacht construction, including sailboats and motoryachts. Founded in 1854 by Pietro Baglietto in Varazze, a village located near the Port of Genova, Baglietto quickly became an example within the naval community. During the late 19th century, Baglietto began building cargo boats, ferry boats and fishing boats, but the new age for Baglietto started just after the introduction of the internal-combustion engine at the end of 1800. They began construction of racing boats and pleasure boats, through which world speed records would be held for many years, proving the quality of Varazze shipyard. The high demand for military boats generated by the explosion of the two World Wars induced Baglietto to become more and more specialized in the construction of military boats. The military sector has always been an important business for Baglietto, but it’s pleasure boat lines, such as Ischia, Elba, Capri, Maiorca, Minorca are still some of the most sold models in Italy. Baglietto Yacht group is comprised of two shipyards, one located in Varazze and the other in La Spezia. Baglietto shipyards specialize in aluminum and steel construction of luxury motor yachts, military boats, coast-guard patrol boats, fast ferries, work boats, commercial vessels, tugs, passenger crafts. Both shipyards have their own design departments (with Autocad system, microstation, other technical and calculating software) and systems allowing to haul, launch and build vessels from 18m up to 150m in length and 650 tons in weight. The facilities employ permanently over 50 people, while the specialized sub-contractors involved in shipbuilding are over 400. The shipyards of Varazze and La Spezia allow a significant exchange of experience to meet market requests: Varazze’s experience in the construction of fast hulls and light alloy vessels joins the La Spezia’s in the construction of large vessels and marine equipment, hence offering a high level of technical expertise and capability. Baglietto’s production is divided as follows: Varazze’s yard concentrates on fast motor yachts up to 40m, while the La Spezia’s on fast ferries, military vessels and luxurious mega yachts over 40m. With 25.000 sq. meters (app. 20 acres) of yard space, 8,000 of which are covered and heated, refit and maintenance work at Baglietto can be carried out on any kind of vessel up to 65m, with a maximum beam of 12m. There are no height or draft restrictions. With the new 720 ton capacity travel lift up and running – one of the largest in the Mediterranean – virtually any vessel can be hoisted for repairs or refit. Vessels undergoing major maintenance or refit work are housed in expandable buildings, adjusted to suit their particular dimensions. Being climate controlled, and weatherproof, all aspects of exterior and interior work, including painting and teak decking can be undertaken in the best possible conditions.
Italian fine art and design, long celebrated for its epitome of style – think glamorous, Rome – Venice– Da Vinci– Martini – Ferrari (of course; movable art ): Baglietto’s latest launch of “yachting-art-deco”, the 141’ Baglietto 'Ancora', generates well-deserved “gasps,” “oh-mys”, and surprised “ah-haa-hs”.
Italian builder Baglietto is using the ongoing Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) to introduce a new line of yachts. The new yachts will range from 40-meters to 50-meters. 41-meter, 44-meter and 50-meter variants are included in the line. The following photos are of the 44-meter variant but designed by two different studios. It appears they are utilizing the same hull but radically changing up the styling and design of the superstructure. The first design variation of the 44-meter is by Francesco Paszkowski which showcases slightly more traditional and mature styling. The sundeck is going to be a hit feature onboard with 22-meters being devoted to this space. How the design of the space is allows for relative privacy for those who will be enjoying the outdoors on that deck. There is a beach club in the aft lower deck with fold down side doors and a fold out transom. Master suite is forward on the main deck with guest accommodation on the lower deck.
The first hull in Italian builder Baglietto’s 46M FAST all-aluminium line is expected to hit the water in a few weeks. The yard is presently adding the finishing touches both to the interior and exterior. Francesco Paszkowski in concert with Baglietto’s in-house team worked on putting together and finessing the exterior design lines of the new 46-meter speedster. However, the interior work has been design and executed by Margherita Casprini with light collaboration from Paszkowski.
Italian builder Baglietto used the Yachts Miami Show to unveil a new design for an explorer type yacht using their familiar modern design. It is not just a concept yacht, the yard expects to start construction soon on this new vessel. A couple of points on the capabilities of the yacht surround being able to stay at anchor for extended periods of time and also decent at-sea endurance along with having great seakeeping characteristics.
