ANything you Need. Everywhere you go. 

A true all-weather performer - Why let the weather dictate how you spend your day? Warm and cosy inside, the ‘fully-enclosed’ Cabin is perfect for customers in colder weather climates and will give the possibility to extend the boating season by many months. The boat is equally suited for hot weather climates, where customers can open-up the roof and have those large, side-opening doors thrown wide open, when they want to embrace the sun and warm weather but still have the possibility to ride protected and dry if bad weather surprises or during chilly evenings.

Ultra-versatile space utilization - Benefit from plenty of stowage space for guest luggage, water-sports equipment or food and beverage provisions. The bow area also offers a great place to socialize and hang out with friends and family on the L-sofa and table. You can easily convert the seating area to a sunbed when you want to utilize the space for sunbathing and relaxing.

Innovative onboard Technology - Shadow 500 models feature the newest marine technology available, like the ISM (intelligent steering module), The Simrad Glass Bridge / Information Display with two 12” screen with a customized user interface incl. for example integrated vessel startup check, Eco / Sport driving modes with active driving assistant features as well as entertainment and media control.

FINEST MATERIAL. Luxurious Refinement.

Sign of Excellence - The helm console is finalized with the exclusive BRABUS Sign of Excellence signed by Constantin Buschmann. This sign symbolizes the promise that each boat is unique, and hand crafted to the highest possible standards by using the finest materials, newest technologies and bespoke engineering.

Carbon fibre - Visible carbon-fibre parts complete the ultra-cool looks of the dashboard and seat trims and further emphasizes the clean and high tech look of the boat. All carbon-fiber parts are made in-house and supplied directly to the boat factory from the BRABUS headquarters in Germany.

BRABUS aluminium steps - An exclusive aluminium step detail can also be found when entering the toilet compartment. The helm is completed with a BRABUS branded exclusive aluminium support for feet to complete the sporty looks but also to add to the ergonomics when driving the boat.
