Brabus Shadow 900 Super Boats Are Back in Limited Numbers

Brabus is not a name to be taken lightly in the tuning world. The Germans have built a reputation for themselves by coming up with incredibly alluring, souped-up versions of Mercedes-Benz cars for more than four decades. But there’s a little side business the company has that might be even more exciting in some circles.

It’s called Brabus Marine, and it’s an arm tasked with making… boats. Brabus is not doing this alone, but together with Finnish boat builder Axopar, and the joint products are generally called Shadow.

Through 2020, we’ve talked a bit about these water-going Shadows, and the products seem to have been interesting enough to customers for the company to bring them back. So, in 2021 get ready for a pack of three variants to take over whatever body of water happens to be near your location.

All three are generally called Shadow 900 Black Ops, but they come in different body styles. We have the Spyder, Sun-Top, and Cross Cabin, each designed to cater to a different need of the customer.

All three share the same powertrain, a Mercury Marine Verado 4.6-liter V8 weighing “some 135 kg less than their nearest competitor” and providing “40 percent more torque than their 400 hp equivalent.”

As usual with products of this kind, each boat can be customized to the will of the owner, so we’ll probably not get to see two of them alike. As a side note, we’ll probably not get to see that many of them, period, considering how just 37 are to be made.

Of the three, just the Sun-Top is presently available, and sells for €536,117 ($647,000). The Cross Cabin comes into the world in March for €631,771 ($763,000), but we get no word yet on the Sypder.
