BLACK. BOLD. MORE BRABUS THAN EVER. – The award-winning Shadow 900 Black Ops series is becoming bolder and darker than ever before with the BRABUS Shadow 900 Black Ops Signature Edition. This latest evolution is a compelling result of BRABUS’ hallmark next-level performance, design language and attention to detail.

The available models within the series are the BRABUS Shadow 900 Spyder, a fully open version, the charismatic and adventurous BRABUS Shadow 900 Sun-Top, and the XC Cross Cabin, an ultra-luxurious SUV of the Sea and fully enclosed Cabin cruiser. Awarded with the Motor Boat Award 2022 for its confident, user-friendly and stylish performance the BRABUS Shadow 900 XC Cross Cabin is fully living and breathing the BRABUS supercar DNA.

The edition is hand built with focus on precision and finish, the process of fairing, painting and polishing alone takes up to six weeks due to non-automated, thorough and highly labor intensive procedures. 

Another highlight of this next level evolution of the renowned Black Ops series is the is the Sun Lounge,  due to its high comfort-level and expanded social space on the front deck. A multitude of new features such as a new LED searchlight, black engine cowlings with gray or red accents according to individual upholstery color choices, revised fender box panels, wall pockets and LED bulwark step lights complement the boat’s irresistible BRABUS appeal.

Luxurious front lounge - Swathed in ‘sport-pattern’, cool gray and black BRABUS fine leather and Dinamica with contrasting red accents and stitching, the front cabin with a ‘queen size’ sleeping accommodation has a sense of space and luxury more associated with a supremely comfortable lounge. Extend the lounge experience with an optional integrated infotainment unit, comprising a 42-inch flat screen 4K TV and Apple TV connectivity to mention a few of the options available. 

Taking it all in - Elevating the feeling of space inside, the Gullwing doors for the front lounge provide easy access and interaction with the outdoors. The net result adds an influx of incoming light and makes a unique connection with the natural environment by bringing the outdoors indoors and vice-versa.

The driver in focus - A clean and ergonomic helm that resembles a supercar more than anything else. Everything on the dashboard is close to hand, touchscreen technology with selected backlit switches and the newly developed multifunction steering wheel with finger-tip controls, make this one of the most modern looking consoles.

Electronics - The BRABUS Shadow 900 features a Simrad®️ dual touch -screen full width, ‘Glass Helm Information Display' with an updated BRABUS User-Interface, including G-shock monitoring, access to the boat’s main navigation, engine management, on board entertainment and driving-assist features. With the extended Navigation Package the helm is expanded into a four screen “bridge” setup that includes additional functions like displaying the speed for the passengers, audio controls and also a digital Panerai watch.

Smart Safety - A G-Shock sensor and 1st Mate Marine Safety & Security System are among the boat’s safety and security features. The G-Shock sensor helps drivers navigate rough weather in safety while the 1st Mate System, in the form of a bracelet or fob, is connected to a mobile phone. The 1st Mate System delivers important safety alerts and offers features like man overboard monitoring, distress messaging, and a theft deterrent. All combine to enable Black OPS XC Cross-Cabin drivers to explore the world’s waters worry-free.
