Built with Passion
Mr. Terry Giles, Yacht Owner
This summer my wife and I experienced a dream I have long had – all summer off the coast of France in a magnificent yacht. Dominator 28M Ilumen performance and special feel of comfort and elegance was spectacular. We could not have been more pleased.
Alberto Mancini, Designer
Design is more important than ever, and today owners want a yacht that offers the ultimate blend of performance, style, luxury amenities and comfort. In satisfying the demand for an elegant motor yacht that harmonises classic yachting tradition with modern technology and design, we designed the Dominator Ilumen to far exceed our clients’ expectations.
Mag. Angela Pernsteiner, Managing Partner
The Dominator Ilumen yachts are bespoke through and through – from the choice of the hull between a semi-displacement and semi-planing version, to the individual comfort cruising speed, the propulsion system or the complete re-engineering of the internal spaces, to name only a few options.
Andrea Agusta, Head of Engineering
How many motor yachts of this size consistently integrate mega yacht solutions the same the Ilumen does? None! From the high-tech construction in post-cured glass and carbon mixed with epoxy resin to the full use of epoxy filler cycle and the application of the Awlcraft painting cycle instead of common, cheap gel coats – every detail immediately tells you that Ilumen is something quite different.
Trust & Experience
Our commitment to technological research and development, coupled with the finest designers and master craftsmen, ensures that a Dominator yacht is indeed a unique masterpiece. This drive for perfection is what our reputation is built on, and as a family-run company with full direct connection with the business we treasure that reputation and the relationship with our yacht owners who are not seen as clients so much as members of a very special Dominator community. This personal relationship and dedication to creating a unique, bespoke product for each owner means we are not only flexible, open-minded and transparent, but also available to you 24 hours a day.

The Dominator Quality Standards
High quality materials
The finest quality materials are handpicked in both the construction and dressing of every Dominator, ensuring that each yacht that leaves our shipyard is durable, beautiful and designed just for you.
RINA CE category A+ / MCA-MGN280
All Dominator yachts are delivered to RINA CE category A+ norms as standard. They are therefore certified to the highest standards of yacht design, construction and commissioning. The Ilumen 28M and upwards can also be provided with commercial registration.
Accessible engine rooms
Forget hot, noisy and oily engine rooms, such a thing does not fit aboard a Dominator yacht. Though you may not spend much time in the engine room each one is immaculate and easy to get to, with the Ilumen range including a control room as seen only in mega yachts.
We don’t cut corners in construction
Dominator yachts are always built to the most exacting standards, using the so-called Sandwich Method where fibreglass is overlaid on both the inner and outer surfaces to create a rigid ‘sandwich’ structure that is far stronger and lighter than a conventional single-wall fibreglass shell.
Built from the best
Traditionally shipyards use Vinylester and a Gelcoat or even just Polyester, which produce unhealthy vapours over time. Rather than save on quality and safety, we use the most expensive resin, Epoxy – the best in terms of strength and lack of emissions.
Cutting edge techniques
We use industry-leading techniques to create a Dominator yacht, with fibreglass that is bundled and stitched rather than woven, so there is no crimp in the yarn. We use full carbon fibre stringers in the hull and Ilumen superstructure for phenomenal strength and lightweight mobility.
Superior sea keeping
The close collaboration between our engineering department and the various handpicked suppliers has led to unparalleled stabilising systems that use a combination of Gyros, Interceptors and Fins together with leading edge hull design to produce unsurpassed performance and comfort at sea.
The highest-grade materials are employed to ensure the utmost standards of comfort aboard. This is made possible by detailed measures such as special engine room insulation with D-Bond and perforated tiles, as well as advanced thermal and sound damping insulation with Mascoat.
The beautiful synergy developed between Boutsen Design and Dominator in adding the final touch of decoration enhances the splendour of the refine interior and exterior of their luxury yachts with a strong emphasis on personalisation and uniqueness.
