Extravagant, hedonistic and brilliant - Packed with technical innovation and blistering performance at heart, we proudly present the BRABUS Shadow 900 Spyder, a full-open version, for pure, unadulterated driving pleasure, and the BRABUS Shadow 900 Sun-Top, a exhilarating passage maker and truly global adventurer. These open-air thrill-seekers, built with obsessive attention to details, offer adrenaline-fueled excitement, superior performance, acceleration and torque, for your unadulterated, luxurious driving experience.


Setting the Standard for Luxury Day Boating - The streamlined and distinctive appearance of the BRABUS Shadow 900 range impresses with an immediate wow-factor. Its never-before-seen innovations have been widely recognized and earned it one of the most prestigious design awards in the world - the Red Dot Award in the 'Product Design' category.

With its bold, confident and authoritative appearance, this amazing and dynamic 37-foot freighter makes sure you arrive in style, no matter where you are. Perfect for bigger yacht owners or those longing to get behind the wheel of a Shadow to take-off by themselves or bring along families and quests for an adventure of their own. The Shadow 900’s were built to re-ignite the passion for driving a boat, even without needing a crew onboard! As premium superyacht tenders, or regatta chase boats, creating the right first impression for clients and VIP’s is important and few boats can match the visual drama and sense of excitement offered by a BRABUS Shadow 900.


Blistering 60+ knots performance - The Shadow 900 Spyder and Sun-Top benefit from Mercury Marine’s latest dual 450R Verado XL 4.6 litre V8 FourStroke engines with Joystick Piloting for easy docking and manoeuvring. At just 320 kg a piece these masterpieces of technology weigh some 135kg less than their nearest competitor and have 40 per-cent more torque than their 400hp equivalent, the perfect engines for the Shadow 900’s. The power to weight ratio for each engine is best in class, improving hole-shot acceleration and creating the renowned driving experience of a Shadow 900.

Class-leading driving experience - Hours of R&D, CFD test-data analyses, hull visualizations and, of course, physical sea-trials have been poured into the evolution of the hull and its hydrodynamics. The result of this exhaustive process is increased performance and a top speed of over +10 knots, lowered fuel consumption, and flexible cruising speed-range in comfortable speeds of 30-40 knots and up to blistering 50 knots cruising speeds for those seeking thrills as well as fast and safe passage.


With versatile storage and people-carrying capability, the Shadow 900 is easily one of the world’s best luxury tenders or chase boats, perfectly at home in the company of the world’s finest superyachts. It is loaded with a myriad of innovative functionality and smart space utilization unlike any other: from smart multi-storage solutions for adventure gear, over spacious foredeck areas with versatile social space, to the ultimate premium lounge below deck, with Gullwing doors or optional enclosed toilet compartment.

Taking it all in - Elevating the feeling of space inside, new 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 - Introducing an all new, 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.

Smart-safety and electronics - The BRABUS Shadow 900 features a wide and expansive Simrad® full width, touch-screen ‘Glass Helm Information Display' with a customizable, state-of-the-art BRABUS User-Interface, offering a selection of driver-orientated sport modes, access to the boat’s main navigation, engine management, on board entertainment and driving-assist features. The Intelligent Steering Module with integrated trim tab, bow thruster and audio controls enables to control the boat even smoother than ever before. In the quest for a more driver-focused, more up to date and seamless looking appearance, the helm area is free of unnecessarily cluttered instrumentarium.


Luxurious front lounge - Experience premium comfort and ambience in the front cabin with a ‘queen size’ sleeping accommodation. Refined down to the last detail, you can choose between a sophisticated BRABUS Fine Leather light gray mono-tone or BRABUS Fine Leather black/light gray dual-tone, accentuated with either red or gray stitching and piping. 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. 

Onboard ambience - The Shadow 900 onboard experience is enhanced with Fusion Marine Entertainment System with audio set-up of 6 x 6” speakers, 2 x 4” speakers, 1 x 10” subwoofer and 1 x 5ch amplifier. LED deck- and deck ambient lights in blue, the Front Lounge LED lights in white and Underwater transom lights in bi-color, white and blue.

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.

Carbone fiber - Visible carbon-fiber 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.
