Baglietto and Portofino Yacht Marina together
Baglietto and Portofino Yacht Marina together to promote sustainable Yachting
La Spezia, 19 April 2023_ Italian Boat Builder Baglietto, based in La Spezia, and Portofino Yacht Marina are pleased to announce the signature of an agreement aimed at promoting the two brands, enhancing their image, and strengthening their respective traditions and the culture of the sea.
The historic Liguria-based shipyard, an icon of international yachting since 1854, and the world’s most famous marina share a precious common denominator – that of timeless beauty and a strong commitment to sustainable yachting.
The Portofino promontory is indeed surrounded by the marine protected area of the same name, including the only strict nature reserve in the region; Baglietto, in turn, with its Bzero project, plays an active role in the ongoing energy transformation process, aimed at achieving zero emissions.
The first joint event will take place on 17-18 May, when the Seagull brand’s first 52 m hybrid hull will be officially presented as a worldwide preview against the breath-taking backdrop of the eighth wonder of the world.
“The alliance forged today between two historic Ligurian icons like Portofino and Baglietto – comments Baglietto’s CEO Diego Michele Deprati – adds even more value to this region, where our style and character have always been deeply rooted”.
“Two excellences now come together – says Portofino’s Mayor Matteo Viacava – to be the ambassadors of Liguria’s beauty and traditions all over the world, under the banner of sustainability”.
Boat builder Baglietto 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. Baglietto can currently rely on 2 production sites, in La Spezia (headquarters) and Carrara (operating site). The La Spezia headquarters extend 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 in La Spezia, as well as new fully-equipped quays, to berth vessels of up to 70 m. The operating site in Carrara, conversely, comprises 2 areas of 5,000 sq. m each. One is used to build military crafts, while in the other – now equipped with 4 new sheds – yachts up to 50 m in length are built. Baglietto’s activities are set to grow considerably, not only with regard to the construction of new pleasure vessels, but also in the military sector, with the BAGLIETTO NAVY brand, under which 2 crafts for the Italian Navy are currently under construction.
