Up until now the prospect of a comfortable and stylish, well-appointed cabin boat in the 28ft size range that could do a comfortable cruising speed around +40 knots, simply did not exist. Customers craving this kind of performance and ability were restricted to ‘professional-only’ boats, such as high-speed RIBS.
This is not the case anymore, boat owners looking for a fully protected and comfortable commuter, along with recognition, acknowledgement, high performance and status at the very top-end of the luxury day-boat market, can achieve all this and so much more with the BRABUS Shadow 500 Cabin.
The BRABUS Shadow 500 Cabin will allow your creativity to flow with a choice of three chic and contemporary gelcoat colours, giving you the possibility to truly express yourself. Choose from Platinum Grey, White Grey or cool Glacier Blue, then match your selection with one of four fashionable seat colour options, including BRABUS Red, BRABUS Cappuccino, BRABUS Sunrise or BRABUS Sapphire.
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.
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. It benefits from plenty of stowage space for guest luggage, water-sports equipment or food and beverage provisions in the case of busy charter yachts. 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.
Boats can be optioned with a full Open aft deck, a Day Cruiser Aft-Cabin accommodation package, with the interior treatment completely remastered by interior experts at BRABUS or with a Wet Bar package including an integrated electric grill, wash-hand basin and top-loading fridge.
Families and guests onboard need to feel safe, secure and protected from the minute they step, whilst owner or its professional captain love the fact this is one of the most thrilling driving experiences, best handling and most seaworthy hulls in this size range. The Shadow 500 Cabin 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.
Attractive, bold and ultra-stylish design. Angular lines with a long, low-centre-of-gravity hull, combined with practical and versatile deck layout options. Choose from Aft bench, Wetbar or Day-Cruiser Aft-Cabin accommodation package for the perfect deck option to fulfil your need.
