Now that the renovations to the shipyard are complete Baglietto’s capacity has increased twofold with the largest addition able to house superyachts up to and including 65m and the other available sheds able to hold 55m projects.

“Currently we have six yachts under construction,” continues Daino. “We have a 54m displacement hull, a 48m displacement hull, a 46m planing hull and another 43m planing hull underway all of which have been designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design.”

In addition to the shipyard expansion, Daino also revealed that Baglietto is developing its business in the American markets. “We have just sold a 48m in Central America and during the Fort Lauderdale boat show we will be opening our new US office. This is an area we consider very important.”

Furthermore, Baglietto are looking to continue the extension of the yard's influence in its near abroad with the possible acquisition of “naval property”. “Beyond the core new build aspect of Baglietto, this expansion will allow us to increase the capacity of our refit and repair sectors,” concludes Daino.
