Dominator revealed its new 28-metre motor yacht Kalliente during a glamorous ceremony in Monaco port on Monday 19th June. Her unique design by Alberto Mancini sets a new standard in power, agility, comfort, luxury and security, all ingredients to become the new benchmark for aesthetics and the use of technology in the market. A grand achievement for a relatively young shipyard.
Kalliente’s semi-displacement hull, built in Epoxy Carbon to MCA standards and designed by Navalhead and Dominator’s in-house technical teams, is propelled by twin 1,200hp MAN V8 diesel engines and can achieve a top speed of 21 knots under calm sea conditions.
Regardless of her lightweight construction material, Kalliente’s owners will enjoy a stable seagoing experience due to the massive gyro stabiliser from Seakeeper installed. “These stabilisers are capable of a reduction of 80 per cent of the uncontrolled roll angle up to 14 degrees,” says Federico Brumat of Dominator’s Technical Office. Counter-rotating propellers of Reintjes furthermore add to the smoothness of the ride.
Design wise, both the interior and exterior of Kalliente are of the highest level of Italian finishing, decorated with majestic materials such as backlit white onyx, ebony, zebrano, matte oak and soft nubuck leather.
For a vessel accommodating 10 guests and three crew, Mancini furthermore set out to challenge limitations and provided the same sensation of space, elegance and luxury in a 28-metre format that you would expect in a mega yacht. His emphasis on interior light, space and volume enabled him to do so. Hence, the name of the series, called ‘Ilumen’.
Special onboard touches and features include a flexible boarding platform - which can be raised and used as a diving board or lowered into the water to provide easy access for launching superyacht toys and tenders and handcrafted Purismo Aurelia E-bikes.
All in all, comfort in an aesthetically pleasing package. Kalliente has now been delivered to her owners who look forward to enjoy a season of cruising this summer.
