La Spezia, April 30th, 2019 - Baglietto, a historical shipyard based in La Spezia with over 160 years specializing in the construction of luxury mega-yachts from 35 meters to 70 meters; Bertram Yachts, the iconic American sport fisherman boat builder; and CCN, a versatile shipbuilder focusing in fully customized 'Fuoriserie' above 30-meter projects, will once again join forces to become the key players at the 2019 Versilia Yachting Rendez-Vous.
Founded by the Nautica Italiana Association, the Versilia Yachting Rendez-Vous (VYR) is organized by Fiera Milano and the Tuscany Yachting District to celebrate the beginning of the summer season and showcase the best of the international yachting community. It is an exclusive event dedicated to promoting excellence in yachting and unveiling new trends in the market.
The VYR, which had a total of 170 exhibitors and more than 22,000 visitors last year, will be held in Viareggio from May 9th to the 12th and will host the entire Gavio fleet with an exceptional line up of six yachts ranging from 13 meters to 46 meters.
Baglietto will present its 46-meter 'Only One' which has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design. The shipyard will also reveal its 43-meter 'Pachamama,' the first built of the new Fast range, and its MV13 powerboat, inspired by the world war MAS and the military vessel FFC15.
CCN will be at the show with its 27-meter 'Freedom' delivered in 2018 to the renowned fashion designer Roberto Cavalli, and Bertram will bring its most popular model, the 35 feet 'Moppie'.
Visitors to this year's edition of Versilia Yachting Rendez-Vous will enjoy a series of exciting events including Art & Yachting, an exhibition where art meets the yachting world that will take place on Thursday, May 9th in Pietrasanta. During this exhibition, Baglietto will partner with the art gallery Marcorossi to present its latest yacht models as authentic pieces of art.
Italian boat builder Baglietto Spa, part of the Gavio Group and based in La Spezia, specializes in the construction of new planning aluminum yachts ranging between 35 and 50 meters in length, as well as steel and aluminum displacement mega-yachts above 40 meters. The company's services also include world-class repair and refitting, as well as the construction of military crafts, under the Baglietto Navy brand, which is the brand's traditional business. The shipyard recently completed an extensive reconstruction project that involved both its manufacturing and commercial facilities. The renovations extend over a more-than-35,000 sq. meter area overlooking the Gulf of the Poets, a truly strategic area for mega-yacht traffic in the Tyrrhenian Sea.
