Dominator Ilumen 28M:
where the Sea Gives Way to Space & Light
Like an ode to a rare beauty skimming along the sparkling sea, Ilumen 28M exudes the purest sense of passion for power and dynamics. The name in itself alludes to light and the sheer brilliance of an innovative design which fuses fluid lines with high performance, a benchmark which ensures that Dominator Yacht's Ilumen 28M has established a new standard in nautical luxury.
The first preview of this 28-meter stunner took place on June 19th at the splendid Montecarlo Yacht Club where it easily surpassed even the highest of expectations in terms of space, light and comfort.
Angela Pernsteiner, managing partner at the shipyard in Fano where Ilumen was built, describes this latest model as a perfect synthesis of balance, presentation and style.
The glamorous premier of Ilumen 28M was attended by the Italian designer Alberto Mancini, responsible for the yacht's external lines and interior design, and by the owner of the engineering studio NavalHEAD, Andrea Agrusta, who created its waterline and oversaw all of the technical aspects of the project.
Every element, from the engine room to each detail of the furnishings – was studied with the objective of creating a perfectly seamless harmony between functionality and beauty. Indeed, this 28 meter yacht easily contains all of the technology and room of a watercraft of much greater length.
The yacht's external lines intertwine creating volumes which evoke the purest forms of nature, while sophisticated and innovative details harken back to the days of early aeronautical and car design. All of this, of course, done in perfect Dominator style.
The layout of the interior gives guests the distinct sense of space that one would expect to find on a much larger craft, thanks to the generous height of the yacht's ceilings and the installation of glass panels along the sides which allow natural light to permeate the area and give way to uninterrupted views of the sea and sky. This sense of plentiful space is even greater on the upper deck where the owners' stateroom is located. This area boasts large floor-to-ceiling windows for 180° views, a ceiling which can be opened automatically perfect for star gazing at night and a watertight door which leads into a small private living room located at the extreme bow of the yacht.
A special protective interlayer film lines all of the tempered layered glass that surround the yacht. This detail ensures the reduction of solar heat by 40% thereby increasing the watercraft's energy efficiency rendering Dominator Ilumen 28M more environmentally friendly.
The interior décor can be personalized and made to measure to meet the needs of every unique client. All of Ilumen's furnishings evoke an air of sophistication which blend contemporary style with a timeless elegance. The fluid architecture creates a harmony of functionality, form, use and comfort and utilizes carefully selected refined materials, high quality finishings and furniture from some of the most prestigious designers, like the futuristic collection of furnishings by Hèrmes, all of which characterize the elegance of this yacht.
Besides offering luxurious style, Ilumen also incorporates high tech innovations such as the latest trend of invisible speakers, located in the VIP and guest cabins, which can transform any type of surface which they come in contact with – wood, marble, stone or glass – into a high quality sound system. This hidden system is just part of an advanced audio-video home automation system, which can be used for communication or entertainment and which includes a private open air cinema on deck. The system can be easily controlled via tablets found in every cabin on board.
Visionary and innovative, Dominator Ilumen 28M represents the purest essence of a love for the sea which challenges the rules of convention and pushes way beyond, firmly placing itself as a milestone in the world of modern yachting.
