New build Dominator motor yacht Kalli-Ente sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 27.5 metre new build motor yacht Kalli-Ente has been sold with Jim Acher at bluewater introducing the buyer.
Currently under construction in carbon fibre and GRP at the Dominator yard in Italy to a design by Alberto Mancini, she is the first of the yard’s new Ilumen 28 series and is scheduled to be delivered in 2017. Accommodation is for 10 guests in five cabins consisting of a master suite, two VIP suites, and two twins with Pullman berths, all with en suite bathroom facilities.
To enhance comfort on board when at speed, Kalli-Ente will rely upon an advanced full motion damping system capable of roll and pitch motion reduction called Humphree Active Ride Control. Humphree interceptors guarantee the lowest possible resistance at each speed, thus increasing speed and lowering fuel consumption.
The new system enhances engine room clearance and enables a Gold Standard warranty, while Profjord has also been appointed to design a new double redundant sea chest inlet that will be virtually cavitation- and resistance-free, providing seawater flow in the whole speed range.
“From the outset, we used a rational design approach typical of big ship or military vessel design,” says Dominator Head of Engineering Andrea Agrusta. “As a result, the yacht was completely modeled in 3D by the synergies of both the design team of Alberto Mancini and the engineering team of Naval Head, from the exterior lines to interior architectural and technical details, in order to arrive at a functional, ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing placement and distribution of all the interior and exterior elements – from the engine room to the luxury living spaces.”
Fitted with twin MAN diesel engines linked to Reintjes pods, Kalli-Ente has a cruising speed of 15 knots.
