A change of management, a totally revised product range, and two boats already under construction: the merger of the two nautical brands of the Gavio family, for the new Baglietto

To hold position in an increasingly competitive market that is constantly evolving, applying new technologies along a path of sustainable growth. This is the goal of the revival of the historic Baglietto trademark, with major long-term investment, starting with the merger of the 2 brands of the Gavio family (Baglietto and CCN), in a revision of managerial organization and product range.

The new professional figures – all with years of expertise on the national and international scene – touch on strategic points. Diego Michele Deprati, a trusted choice of the majority shareholder, takes on the role of CEO, having already been involved in previous internal operations, hence a natural choice in the perspective of a revolution based on continuity.

He is joined by Guido Penco as Technical Director, ‘at the helm’ of the Research & Development division, striving for an eco-sustainable, green approach, as in the use of alternative, totally hybrid motors. Luca Ghirlanda takes charge of Operations, focusing on the pursuit of excellent production quality in all phases, complying with delivery deadlines for contracts; and Fabio Ermetto is the new Chief Commercial Officer.

The new product range Ermetto has the job of developing is the connecting link to the established objective: to confirm the brand’s place in the avant-garde of innovation and technology, with full respect for its tradition. The new team is still accompanied by Francesco Paszkowski, the designer of reference for Baglietto, who has interpreted the firm’s spirit and style for over 20 years.

The challenge, at this point, is to work on 3 new lines of totally updated boats: two very innovative high-performance lines, Fast and Superfast, in aluminium with models from 40m to 50m; and a more traditional line of displacement yachts, the T-Line, in steel and aluminium with models from 52m to 65m. A 42m Fast and the first 52m T-Line have already been sold.

“I am very pleased about this new challenge, which I will meet with great enthusiasm,” says Fabio Ermetto. “Baglietto is a brand that needs no introduction; it has a remarkable history of excellence, and I cannot help but feel honored by their trust. The growth plans are ambitious, and I am ready to make my contribution to the growth of this iconic trademark.”
