The BRABUS Shadow range is designed for a select group of boat owners who want to enjoy the very best exclusive boating experience for absolute individualism, ultimate luxury and seriously impressive power and performance.
Adopting the identical philosophy of BRABUS supercars, whereby a premium car, as the Mercedes-AMG range is utilised as a platform from which BRABUS build their supercars, we transform and redefine a selective range of Axopar boats into BRABUS Shadow superboats.
In the history of BRABUS benchmark cars, all of their topline supercar models have been given an instantly recognisable name, like the BRABUS Rocket 900, the Fastest Sedan in the World.
Hence the nickname “Shadow” for the BRABUS Marine range of products, where the name signifies a hyper-quick, hyper-exciting luxury day-boat or tender, a tremendous ‘go-anywhere’ support boat that owners of large yachts & superyachts will love to drive themselves, seeking out beautiful bays, remote islands and coastlines where the larger yacht may choose to follow.
The Brabus Shadow 800 is based on Axopar’s 37 Sun Top model, which measures 11.2 meters (36 feet, nine inches) in length. Power comes from twin supercharged 400-horsepower Mercury Verado 400R outboards, offering a top speed of over 50 knots or 57 miles per hour (92 kilometers per hour). The inline-six engines offer 2.7 liters of displacement.
The Shadow 800 is finished with an assortment of high-quality materials similar to what one would find inside a Brabus vehicle. There is an abundance of carbon fiber accents, fine leather, and Alcantara throughout. The cabin can sleep two. Sorry to all the Leo DiCaprios of the world.
The Brabus boat is packed with technology. There’s an optional touchscreen control panel that allows controlling the interior ambient and general lighting of the fore cabin. The fore cabin also features an integrated infotainment unit, which includes a 42-inch flat screen TV with Apple TV connectivity and high-end sound system.
Aside from the boat, all twenty owners will receive the next generation Garmin Quatix 5 Sapphire multisport marine wristwatch as part of the package. This watch does more than just tell time. The watch offers connectivity with Garmin chart plotters. Functionality also includes controlling navigation and entertainment, fitness data-logging, and more.
If you have a garage full of Brabus-tuned machines, the Shadow 800 could be the perfect addition if you’re looking to explore to open the sea.
If you’re looking to make the next blockbuster action movie, you’ll need one of these. However, it could be hard to get your hands on one.
Faster, leaner and technically advanced. The new BRABUS Shadow 900 is a thrilling and competent all-round performer. Technically brilliant an a pinnacle achievement in the luxury sport- boat sector.
