Can a 12VDC light be dimmed with a 120VAC dimmer?

I am installing some 12 volt DC lights on a houseboat.

Is it possible to dim this set of lights with a 120 volt AC dimmer?

I should point out that I will be using the newer electronic type dimmer... not the older resistance type dimmer. I have a mix of 120V and 12V lights on this boat and would like to keep all dimmer switches the same.

Thanks,

Steve
