First look at 28m Dominator Ilumen yachts Zalanka and Cadet V

3 February 2018• Written by Chris Jefferies

Dominator Yachts has opened up about its forthcoming 27.5 metre Ilumen yachts Zalanka and Cadet V, which are due to be launched in June.

Despite sharing the same semi-displacement hull form and design combination (Alberto Mancini for the exteriors and Luca Catino for the interiors), these two projects are highly individual, the yard explained. The most obvious example of this is the layout — Zalanka will boast five cabins, while Cadet V features the four-cabin version.

No exterior renderings of Cadet V have been released yet, but Zalanka (pictured above) will feature a spectacular gold hull finish.

Speaking about the latter yacht’s interior décor, designer Catino revealed: “Refined warm tones are provided by Amara ebony and light oaks from the Lissoni Collection, but also by gorgeously contrasted backlit white onyx and taupe silk Georgette marble with wavy veins that resemble the sea. The freestanding Poltrona Frau fauteuils stand upon a handmade parquet in chocolate oak tones with a special finishing, while the sumptuous fabrics come from the latest Hèrmes and Dedar collections.”

By contrast, Cadet V’s interior (pictured below) will feature Stefano Curto artwork, oak and palisander woodwork, rare marbles and precious stones.

The new Dominator Ilumen yachts will both carry state-of-the-art toys in their tender garages, with Zalanka set to carry two full-carbon e-bikes from Purismo, while Cadet V will boast a Radinn Wakejet electric wakeboard. Shared kit includes a Williams 395 jet tender, a Seadoo Spark and a pair of personalised Seabobs.

Power will come from a Reintjes poddrive propulsion system for an estimated top speed of 21 knots.

Angela Pernsteiner, managing director of Dominator Yachts, added: “We are very pleased to incorporate and realise such unique client ideas that allow us to represent our bespoke philosophy perfectly.”
