New Ilumen 28M by Dominator currently being built

IlumenUnveiled as Ilumen 26M and later lengthened, the new 28-metre Ilumen by Dominator is currently under construction at the shipyard’s facilities in Fano, Italy.
The new Ilumen series includes 28, 32 and 36 metre models, all designed by AM Yacht Design together with Naval Head’s engineering team.
Her hull is the Dominator High Performance Hull (HPH), a hard-chine hull with a blade bulbous bow designed to produce superior resistance values in all the semi-displacement and semi-planing phases. The HPH is able to operate in perfect symphony with the Fortjes Pods produced by Reintjes, specialists in gearbox development and production.
Federico Brumat from Dominator’s Technical Office, comments upon her engineering and performance: “A Dominator yacht would not carry the badge if it didn’t represent the very finest in engineering and design, so following enthusiastic feedback from the owner of the last yacht delivered, we are going to adopt a clever double system of yacht stabilisation made of a gyro and interceptors. Many yachts foresee zero speed fins; to avoid adding resistance due to appendages we went for a huge gyro stabiliser from Seakeeper capable of a reduction of 80% of the uncontrolled roll angle up to 14 degrees.”
Angela Pernsteiner, Managing Partner at Dominator Design & Development, said: “Today’s owners are demanding more – greater, more comfortable and luxurious living spaces, sophisticated ambient lighting, top-level amenities and enhanced on-board stability, safety and nautical range, but also lower fuel consumption, emissions and reduced maintenance.  We have merged these demanding standards with our design and development philosophy to make the Ilumen yacht series truly exceptional, using client feedback to focus on specific quality-enhancing details that mark the difference between good and outstanding.”
