Last month at the annual Cannes Yachting Festival, Dominator Yachts unveiled a stunning new luxury boat to add to their already impressive collection.
The D26 Ilumen, though it has not yet been built, is a 87-foot semicustom model that uses hybrid propulsion, and took two years to develop.
The D26 Ilumen features four power modes ranging from pure electric, which engages the electric engines, enabling the yacht to travel at speeds up to 6 knots.
There is also diesel and electric, which engages both the diesel and electric engines, allowing for speeds up to 26 knots.
The yacht can travel more than 3,400 miles before refuelling, when cruising at a speed of 8 knots, matching boats more than twice its size.
The hull is made from carbon composite, helping reduce the weight while increasing rigidity, allowing it cut through waves while maintaining a comfortable ride.
The multilayer hull is reinforced to reduce onboard noise.
The yacht was designed by Alberto Mancini, a young Italian designer who has been responsible for a number of luxury yachts launched in the last few years.
Somehow Mancini has helped the D26 Ilumen the feel of a much larger vessel.
For example, the full-beam master suite measures more than 320 square feet.
The suite is situated on the main deck toward the bow, and features a forward panel of floor-to-ceiling windows, which slide open to a private terrace at the bow.
A large sliding sunroof allows occupants to sleep beneath the stars.
The massive flybridge comes with a hot tub, bar, dining table, padded lounge area, helm station, and retractable sunroof.
The yacht’s saloon has floor-to-ceiling windows aft and at the sides, helping create the illusion of extra space and provide ample light.
The stern door folds down to create a swim platform and interior lounge area, a feature common aboard megayachts but rarely seen on sub-100-foot boats.
Below the deck, the D26 Ilumen can come with a couple of options.
The yacht can be equipped with two guest cabins and either two larger cabins or one full-beam VIP suite.
In true Dominator yachts style, the D26 Ilumen can be customized with virtually any materials and furnishings to meet all tastes.
The first example for the first D26 Ilumen features onyx, zebrano, and silk, among other materials.
Dominator Yachts has not yet announced pricing for the D26 Ilumen, or an expected launch date for the first example.
