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.” Alberto Mancini, Designer

“…the charter was a success. The crew was very friendly and professional and delighted to serve. Overall the boat was in a very good condition, the rooms downstairs were much bigger (I even slept once there to try myself), my room was also excellent, the chief cook was really excellent… In one word, it is a Benetti, luxury + service were very good. I would strongly recommend it everyone. Thanks for everything.”
