BRABUS SHADOW 500
WORLD PREMIERE AT BOOT DÜSSELDORF 2019

With 50 knots+ performance waiting to be unleashed, insane acceleration times and massive torque available from Mercury Marine’s latest XS Pro V8 FourStroke engines - who could not be tempted by
the BRABUS Shadow 500?

Given the ‘dual-personality’ status of every BRABUS Shadow, this is a boat fully capable of taking friends and family away for long-weekends and island-hopping excursions in a high degree of luxury and comfort, yet with a serious turn of speed and ‘kick in the back’ acceleration when you want it most.

AN EXCEPTIONALLY QUICK, ‘GO ANYWHERE’ DRIVER’S BOAT

Blindingly quick acceleration times, vice-like grip & handling, with a ‘kick in the back’ feeling, even from 40 knots fully loaded and with eight people on board.

AXOPAR/BRABUS MARINE SHARED-PLATFORM THINKING

Underpinned by the successful Axopar 28 hull, with further optimised hydro-dynamics and carbon-fibre reinforcing for even better overall performance and handling.

Benefiting from the ‘shared-platform’ thinking that BRABUS and Axopar pioneered so successfully last year; it’s only as a result of this, that such a well-appointed and luxurious boat could be achievable and made commercially viable in today’s market.

With handling characteristics underpinned by the multi award-winning Axopar 28 hull, the Shadow 500 offers a heady mix of performance, combined with sociable, luxurious spaces that up to nine people can fully enjoy.

BRABUS SHADOW 500

BRABUS SHADOW 500

Positioned at the very top of the 30ft sports-weekender market, with mesmerizing performance on the one hand, yet with comfortable, day-long cruising capability and luxurious refinement on the other.

A ‘best of both world’s’ scenario, you could say. The Shadow 500 is considered unique within this size range, and something that customers will find hard to replicate anywhere else.

Available in a choice of three, contemporary gelcoat colours and two different seat fabric colours, including Platinum Grey, White Grey (available May 2019) and Light Blue (available from Sept 2019), and two seat fabric / sunpad cushion colours to choose from including BRABUS Red and BRABUS Cappuccino.

The BRABUS Shadow 500 is produced in higher volume numbers compared to the Limited-Edition ‘One of Twenty Eight’ versions.

Built with exactly the same level of equipment and obsessive attention to detail as for the Limited Edition versions, the only exception is without the high-gloss, Gunmetal Grey colour scheme which will only ever be available with the Limited-Edition ‘One of Twenty Eight’ versions.

Walk-around side decks enable access to all areas, including a separate foredeck L-shaped seating/breakfast area, with removable table and sundeck mattresses and (if optioned) a large, cushioned sun-pad on the roof of the Day Cruiser Aft-Cabin.
