Dominator Launches Two New Ilumen 28M
Sep 19, 2018
Dominator proudly presents two uniquely conceived yachts at the Cannes and Monaco Boat Show – MY ZALANKA and MY CADET V. Custom-made and unique to the last detail, these beautiful boats offer mega yacht features in a 28M configuration and embody the philosophy of this bespoke yacht builder, which blends advanced technology and master craftsmanship to produce one-off works of art, comfort, style and sophistication.
 
A distinct philosophy
What sets Dominator apart from other marques is the ethos behind the creation of each and every one of its beautiful vessels – to produce a unique, bespoke masterpiece designed entirely to the taste and needs of her owner. Dominator achieves this thanks to its ability to bring industry-leading engineering and handcrafted elegance together in one 21st century yacht.
 
“An Ilumen is not off the rack, but made-to-measure and the product of our on-going commitment to technological research and development,” says Angela Pernsteiner, CEO of Dominator Ilumen. “We collaborate with the best experts in their fields to ensure we are at the cutting edge of engineering and design, so that we can offer yachts that are powerful, thrilling, beautiful and safe beyond what has previously been seen in this segment of the market.”
 
Apart from the necessary structural and regulatory considerations, the owner of a Dominator Ilumen has no limitations, as the cabin layout, interior design, décor details, propulsion system, performance parameters and personal cruising speed, fixtures and fittings can all be specified individually. The Bespoke Team is available 24/7 to the owners, their families and captains who are welcome at all times to observe the construction and take part in it. The team is eager to make additional efforts and meet the owners anywhere around the world to realize the most demanding ideas from the outset.
 
Dominator Ilumen is proud to offer owners an upscale high-tech construction in post-cured glass and carbon fiber mixed with epoxy resin to the full use of epoxy filler cycle and the application of the Awlcraft painting cycle that is incomparable to the common gel-coats and polyester fiberglass usually used on yachts this size. This maximises strength, mobility and weight-saving. Above all, every Ilumen has a double bottom with structural fuel tanks, which ensures a low barycentre and enhanced stability, safety and performance. With this new construction method of fiberglass, Dominator Ilumen does not only offer 10 years of warranty to the structure but also an infinite choice of completely bespoke colour choices within this painting system that is known to be used on mega yachts only.
 
MY ZALANKA
She is designed and finished to the detailed preferences of the owner, who wanted a cosy, comfortable ambience but also as much natural light as possible. Luca Catino, the chief interior designer, and decorator Giulia Sigismondi worked closely with him to ensure the end result was exactly what he dreamed of – and more!
 
The yacht is a thing of beauty, with brushed oak wood panelling from the latest collection of Piero Lissoni complemented by glossy ebony accents. Silk georgette marble and vetrite glass by Sicis set the tone in the bathrooms, as do hand-laid Piallato parquet floors and Hermès fabrics for the indoor and outdoor furnishings. The platinum tones of the hull are offset wonderfully by turquoise and orange detailing inside, with the former made especially for the yacht and dubbed ‘Dominator Gold’ by the manufacturer.
 
With her specially composed metallic bronze hull colour the M/Y ZALANKA will turn heads at sea. Dominator is pleased to incorporate and realize such unique client ideas that allows them to represent the bespoke philosophy perfectly.
 
MY ZALANKA combines the stability of a large ship with the manoeuvrability of a small powerboat, and it has been set up to offer optimised static and dynamic behaviour at sea, with a maximum inclination of only 2,7 degrees. Propulsion comes from 2 Reintjes Fortjes POD units, each with 2 propellers, which endows the yacht with fuel efficiency while cruising and exhilarating agility at high speed.
 
Ilumen Cadet V
A lot of consideration went into the selection of fine woods used to dress this yacht, with tonalities of grey and blue oak, and blue palisander created especially for the client. This attention to detail even extends to the stitching of the sofa and the custom colour and design of the parquet, while it pays off in the harmony of sophistication, comfort and style.
 
A sculpture of renowned Lorenzo Quinn and two beautiful artworks by Stefano Curto featuring thousands of Swarovski crystals take pride of place in the refined interior, where the gorgeous suede by Foglizzo forms part of a different colour scheme in each of the luxurious cabins. The bathrooms feature an accompanying handmade file rouge mosaic by Sicis, while the pearl grey parquet accentuated by darker ‘comento’ edging provides a soft palette for the blue agate recessed on the walls of the master cabin and lower deck lobby. The result is something quite unexpected on a yacht of this size.
 
Built to the exact same standards but custom-fitted to the owner’s specific requirements, the Ilumen CADET V is a very different, unique yacht built from the same Ilumen 28M concept. The 2 V drive shaftline and the stern section of the hull have been designed to provide the twin propellers with the best wake in order to maximise efficiency and reduce fuel consumption across the speed range. The hull shape, together with the twisted rudders, allows the yacht to manoeuvre easily and without inertia delay even at very low speeds. In short, the Ilumen CADET V is a segment-leading technical marvel at sea.
 
Additional Equipment
A unqiue heaven for seawater toys in this category, the yachts come equipped with a Williams Jet Tender 395, a Seadoo Spark jet ski in customised colours and two Seabobs featuring personalised designs. The M/Y CADET V also has a Radinn Wakejet, the world’s leading electric wakeboard, while the M/Y ZALANKA includes two full-carbon E-bikes from Purismo – very complete for yachts of this size.

Key Differences between CADET V and ZALANKA:
  • CADET V features a full beam Master Cabin and two VIP Cabins on the Lower Deck while MY ZALANKA has a four cabin Lower Deck that includes a modern office space.
  • The Owner Cabin of CADET V was extended by one meter and offers a truly wide private area while ZALANKA features a day toilet on the Main Deck Lobby.
  • While the engine room of ZALANKA features spacious entrance stairs down to an electrical control room, the engine room of CADET V was conceived in a more traditional way with a ladder to enter.
  • ZALANKA’s propulsion system is composed by the Fortjes Pod Propulsion System, while CADET V cruises with a shaft propulsion system.
  • While the three sisterships KALLIENTE, ZALANKA and CADET V resemble each other in their progressive exterior design, there is not one meter on board that is identical.
