If you have yet to see the Dominator 800, now is a good time to familiarize yourself. The 80-foot luxury yacht is nearly 20 feet wide and according to the company, “combines stunning exterior design with the latest technology in operating systems and propulsion.”
Able to accommodate 16 people comfortably, the yacht was designed for a client who wanted a really big galley and dining area for socializing. “My personal choice which was accepted…was to develop a nice warming and elegant atmosphere, not big contrasts but tone on tone colours, a shade of beige, taupe and grey,” explains interior designer Alberto Mancini. “The brighter oak brushed painted parquet with the oak painted bulkhead gives immediately a welcoming perception of elegance.”
The neutral tones filling the interior works with large windows (which allows in tons of light) to reinforce the open spaces, making them appear even grander. Italian furniture brand Minotti was also brought in to create custom ostrich feather couches, ensuring the Dominator 800 is totally fresh and new.
One of the yacht's standout features is the carbon hardtop, which provides shade and features a retractable middle portion that can be opened to the night sky when stargazing is in order.
Dominator 800 has four cabins, four bathrooms (you can request an extra be added if you want), and two crew cabins with one bathroom to share. Powered by twin MAN engines, the vessel is able to reach a top speed of 35 knots (40mph) and has a nautical range of 1,450 miles.
If you want to check her out in person, she will be at the Monaco Yacht Show and is available for visits and sea trials (by appointment) September 23-26.
