Astonishing journey of over 160 years of heritage.
Pietro Baglietto started his dream of founding the historic Shipyard. In the beginning, Baglietto specialized in small fishing boats, but then the Shipyard went into designing and building yachts.
The first racing boat sailed from the Shipyard.
Baglietto built Rosy, a 7.50-meter cutter created to become a legend.
Pope Leo XIII was gifted with La Barchetta, a boat commissioned to the Shipyard by a group of Genoese nobles. In the same year, the unbeatable Iole was built.
The Shipyard arrived first to another finish line.
After being modified, the competition yacht Miss Mary became a regatta champion. The first one of a long series of winning streaks.
New Century: The Shipyard dropped the anchor for the construction of a legend
In 1906 the Shipyard built Giuseppina, the most significant cruising yacht in Italy with an “explosion engine,” a length of 22.60 meters, and a weight of 33 tons. In the same year, the Shipyard began the construction of the first hydrofoil boat in the world.
The Shipyards engaged in government orders.
With the start of the First World War, the Shipyard adjusts its production line. Baglietto produces for the Marina Regia seaplanes and the MAS, a sea-worthy anti-submarine armed motorboat. The name of this boat inspired D’Annunzio to write his motto, “Memento Audere Semper.”
Several pleasure boats built for outstanding personalities take off.
Buyers include the Spanish King Alfonso XIII, Guglielmo Marconi, Umberto II, and even Puccini with his Cio Cio San, and D’Annunzio with Alcyone.
From Vittorio Baglietto’s hand comes La Spina, the first 12-meter yacht ever built in Italy. It was known for its detailed finishes and the cutting-edge technology used onboard.
The legendary MAS breaks another record, 50 knots of speed. The boat project was reviewed to improve its performance and technology onboard.
Baglietto, an evolving Shipyard.
Thanks to the collaboration with the Italian army, the Seagull brand makes a vital technology evolution. Caroly, a 22.6-meter yawl, is an example.
Pietro Baglietto Junior arrives to guide the Shipyard on a new route.
Like his grandfather, Pietro, and his uncle, Pietro Junior was passionate about design. He signs RORC Lanzerota, a III class boat, elegant with a cutting-edge look.
Baglietto keeps winning with Twins VI wins the “Coppa d’Italia” in Helsinki and then in Genova. With Twins II triumphs in Sandhamn (Sweden), gaining the “Coppa Oro,” and the “Coppa di Francia” in Gineva.
New production techniques.
Baglietto introduces marine plywood and develops new production techniques. An emblematic case is that of the Flying Bridge: a crucial structural innovation that allows shipowners and his/her guests to take full advantage of the boat’s roof, and it increases performance.
TOWARD NEW HORIZONS:
THE ALUMINUM YEARS
The vessels’ performance improves thanks to the technology onboard and better design. The motor yacht Chato (26 meters) with water jet propulsion, reaches 62.50 knots of speed; and the 18-meter, 16.50 meter, and 20-meter numerical series yachts are also equipped with cutting-edge technological solutions such as hydrodynamics and planning hulls that guarantee fantastic performance.
THE FUTURE BEGINS:
THE LARGE YACHTS.
From the pencil of Aldo Chichero, two boats that defined the concept of “series” for Baglietto were born. A production cured in the smallest details, which makes each piece unique.
The Maffy Blue model was launched in 1991; it measures 33 meters and reaches 30 knots of speed. It is a mega yacht with very luxurious interiors, an attractive design, and strong, sleek lines.
Two years later, Alba (30 meters) set sail from the Baglietto Shipyard. Alba has the same style and production that is now adopted.
Francesco Paszkowski designs Opus, the first open yacht of 29 meters that can reach 40 knots. It is the beginning of a happy collaboration that continues today.
Baglietto acquires Cantieri Ferrari, based in La Spezia, and faces a new period of renewal and an increase in production capacity. Paszkowski designs the 30-meter yacht Charly Boy and, in 2001, Thunderball, the first 34-meter of the “Fast Yacht” series.
Models like RC were built in 2004 for Roberto Cavalli designed by Tommaso Spadolini and Tatiana per sempre. The 34-meter Blue Princess (2005) and the 42-meter Blue Scorpion were delivered the following year. Together with Bolaro, Apache II, Gitana, and Baraka.
No Baglietto yacht is the same because every shipowner is exceptional, and every project born in our Shipyard reflects his/her uniqueness.
Our passion for yachting pushes us to work hard every day to offer our clients an exclusive, personal, and one-of-a-kind experience.
To build exceptional yachts that measure up to the shipowner’s desires and the high standards of quality, style, and innovation, which have always distinguished Baglietto.
For over 165 years, we have delivered yachts that stand the test of time. These queens of the sea have a unique and contemporary design and follow our tailored approach, which combines tradition and innovation with excellent materials and high customization. The result is yachts as elegant and extraordinary as the Baglietto owners.

Our history has taught us a profession we have developed over 165 years. Entering the Baglietto shipyard is like venturing into an artist’s atelier, where every detail is studied to craft a yacht that meets the owner’s brief. A team of engineers and architects oversees every stage of the decision-making and construction process, advising the client every step of the way.
What is innovation if not the ability to take everything that our ambition and knowledge have produced and courageously take it to the next level, towards something that did not exist before? Baglietto has always been on the cutting-edge of yacht design, thanks to its revolutionary models from the MAS to the “islands” series, its materials which led the transition from wood to aluminium, its design, building the first ever superyachts, and performance, designing hulls exceeding 60 knots as early as the '80s. Baglietto continues on this course, taking innovation to the next level with its ongoing stylistic and technological research.
Baglietto Blueness is a declaration of love for the sea. Committed to environmental issues and actively involved in protecting our seas, Baglietto develops advanced technological solutions that are compatible with the ecosystem. This commitment has led to the B° project which examines every action Baglietto takes in order to minimise its environmental emissions, use sustainable materials and realise its most ambitious project yet – building a hydrogen-powered yacht.
