Virtual tour brings concept to life

ADVERTISEMENT

How can a buyer walk through a yacht that’s not even built yet? Through a virtual reality system with a creative edge.

Dominator Yachts has developed its Ilumen Virtual Reality system for its new 26m Ilumen Series yacht, being built in Italy. I donned the virtual headset and, with a shuffle of my feet and panning of my head, I was easily traversing the virtual yacht from stem to stern, top to bottom.

Walking around the bow, through doors, and up and down stairs while taking in each room and outside scenery was effortless. It allows anyone to get a sense of the visibility from the lower helm, the layout of space, and an overall feel that may not be conveyed through drawings.

Users can make changes to the yacht as they peer through the goggles, including the types of fabrics, woods, finishes, colors and more. And what the user sees is also displayed on a separate TV for others to view, also.

“It gives a real feel for the yacht,” Dominator CEO Alex Langhein said. “And it has helped to sell the new yacht.”
