Arriving in Style. PREmium Looks.

Superyacht owners, their families and VIP guests like to arrive in style, in a tender that oozes the same high-class visual appeal as the finest superyachts. It’s therefore no surprise that a BRABUS Shadow 500 Cabin would be considered the perfect choice for a superyacht tender or ‘shadow’ support boat. The Shadow is practical, versatile and capable of safely transiting passengers from ship-to-shore, whatever the weather, even in arduous sea conditions if necessary. The 2ft 8in shallow draft enables access to all kinds of places that larger yachts cannot reach, enabling owners to discover hidden bays and idyllic anchorages.

Massive torque. SUpreme PERFORMANCE. 

Phenomenal acceleration and massive torque – With a combined total output of 500hp and bags of torque from Mercury Marine’s latest 4.6 litre V8 ProXS lightweight FourStroke engines, every BRABUS Shadow 500 Cabin will deliver thrilling acceleration, supreme performance at 50+ knots and massive torque, for an all in all truly electrifying ride.

You will find it cruising between a summer home in The Hamptons and an executive apartment on New York’s 5th Avenue just as likely as finding it undertaking adventurous island explorations in the Scandinavian archipelago
