Dominator Yachts is building a 42-metre (138-foot) Ilumen tri-deck superyacht inspired by multicultural living. The project was announced at the yard's 20th anniversary party.
Named Peppermint and currently under construction, the “mini explorer” is offered with either a semi-displacement or displacement hull and has a transatlantic range of 4,500 nautical miles at 11 knots. The option to have a touch-and-go helipad at the bow is also available.
Decks and spaces on board the yacht have been inspired by different continents. The flybridge has a Middle Eastern theme with subdued colours, a hookah lounge and traditional bar and was likened to a “Marrakech café”.
The upper deck meanwhile has been inspired by Asia and comes with a lifestyle and detox are; the aft cockpit, main saloon and galley have been inspired by Europe, specifically Milan, with large open spaces, and a seamless connection between the interior and exterior; and the owner’s cabin heavily resembles a Manhattan penthouse apartment.
Speaking about the yacht, the yard commented, “The owner’s passion for travelling the world influences the design of each area.
“The idea was to bring in as many different people and life paths as possible, creating a melting pot of stories inside the yacht through multicultural guests aboard and outside the yacht through exciting travel destinations she will cruise to.”
