CERTIFICAtion ISO 9001:2015

Baglietto shipyard based in La Spezia has successfully accomplished the procedure to an integrated System of Corporate Management for Quality and was awarded with the ISO 9001:2015 certification by RINA on 20th December.

The ISO 9001:2015 certification confirms the commitment for Baglietto to get a quality management system acting according to the highest standard and best practices to ensure the customers products of excellence and quality are constantly improved.


Baglietto, based in La Spezia and Carrara, is an icon of yachting made in Italy since 1854.  

The shipyard specialises in the construction of new planing aluminium yachts ranging between 38 and 50 metres in length and steel & aluminium displacement mega-yachts above 40 metres.; its activities are set to grow considerably, not only concerning the construction of new pleasure vessels and refitting activities but also in the military sector, with the BAGLIETTO NAVY brand.   

Baglietto owners can count on a wide range of models as well as choose to build totally customized and tailor-made yachts. 

In February 2012, the shipyard was acquired by Gavio Group, a leading international group in highway construction and concessions (the fourth largest group in the world in terms of number of kilometers) and with interests in numerous industrial sectors, from logistics to technology. 

At the end of 2020, Baglietto Spa merged with Cerri Cantieri Navali Spa, a shipyard located in Carrara and now Baglietto’s operational headquarters. 

Also part of the Gavio Group’s yachting division is Bertram Yachts, an iconic sport-fisherman boat brand based in the United States.

The La Spezia headquarters extends over an area of approximately 35,000 sq. m. 

Over the last few years, the entire production site has been extensively renovated and enlarged. Three new sheds allowing for the construction of yachts up to 65 m in length were built, as well as new fully equipped quays, to berth vessels of up to 70 m, along with a new and renovated dock of more than 3,600 square meters and with two 85-meter docks, providing a significant increase in berthing capacity. 

The Carrara operational headquarters now extends over an area of more than 8.000 sq. m with plans for upcoming enlargement in the surrounding areas.

In the past three years, Baglietto has renewed its management and employee teams and can count now on 100 employees and about 400 external workers for a full-capacity production.

The impressive effort of Baglietto does not end with the construction of yachts but also concerns the development and design of new models, which will be fundamental for future growth and consolidation. These projects maintain the recognizability of the timeless Baglietto style along with the qualities of solidity, reliability and safety that have always been strong characteristics of Baglietto yachts. 

This effort is also enhanced by the strategy of building boats on speculation, which requires investments in development and construction.

Alongside the attention to Product Quality and Reliability, Baglietto has always been attentive to issues regarding Health and Safety at Work, in full compliance with the relevant legislative provisions, and to environmental issues to protect the territory and the surrounding environment through the reduction of the impacts resulting from its activities.

Based on a firm belief of the shipyard, it’s important in this sector to take the opportunities to improve quality standards, for the protection of the health and safety of each worker and the environment.

The continuous search for these opportunities and spaces for improvement, together with compliance with applicable laws, represent the main objective that the shipyard, through its management, has always pursued and intends to deepen.

Baglietto also has a Model of Organization and Management ex D.Lgs. 231/2001 and an integrated Business Management System for Quality and Health and Safety at Work since 2018, based on the international standards ISO 9001 and ISO 45001, certified by RINA. Moreover, the shipyard is now integrating the Environmental Management System according to ISO 14001.  

This confirms Baglietto’s commitment to get a quality management system acting accordingly to the highest standards and best practices to ensure both products of excellence and the prevention of accidents, occupational diseases and pollution, and improvement of occupational health, safety and environmental performance.

In particular, Baglietto’s successful goal will be accomplished as soon as the following tasks will be reached:
