With its gorgeous looks, cutting-edge technology and mesmerizing
performance, this 28-foot BRABUS Shadow 500 Cabin provides just the
right ingredients for your tailor-made, high-octane marine adventure.
Reveal your personality to the world by imparting your own taste and
charisma in this stunning and exceptionally fast 50+knots coast-to-coast
commuter and adventurous shadowbaot for a guaranteed wow-effect.
Be your own captain – Set course for unlimited adventure. The Shadow
500 Cabin offers one of the most thrilling driving experiences, best
handling and most seaworthy hulls in this size range and it is equally
capable working as a comfortable luxurious day-cruiser, a true workhorse,
a thrill-seeker for speed lovers, a dive-excursion boat, water-sports boat or
sports-fishing boat. 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.


Attractive, bold and ultra-stylish design – Angular lines with a long, low-
centre-of-gravity hull, combined with practical and versatile deck layout
options. 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 is the most luxurious and stylish partner in which to
arrive at the most glamorous marinas and harbours around the world.


This boat is a dual-personality 28ft powerhouse, with 50 knots+
performance, phenomenal acceleration time and massive torque
available from a combined 500hp of Mercury Marine’s latest, dual XS Pro
V8 FourStroke engines.


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.


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.
