The new Brabus Shadow 1000 combines raw power with top-tier handling and agility in a one-of-a-kind luxury performance superboat.

A marriage of breath-taking acceleration, race-responsive handling, and bespoke craftsmanship, the newest addition to the Shadow series is Brabus Marine’s fastest ever model, and one that’s bound to turn heads.

Powered by 1,000hp Dual Mercury Racing 500R 4.6l V8 supercharged outboard engines (the first to monitor air humidity levels, ensuring optimal performance in all environments), and available in Cross-Cabin and Sun-Top configurations, the new model sits perfectly next to the Brabus 1000 Black Ops Signature Edition in Graphite Black paint, and the popular Brabus 900.

A Gran Turismo for the sea, the Brabus 1000’s race-responsive steering and handling guarantees an unfiltered high-performance driving experience at up to 60 knots. Beyond its raw power, every element of the new addition is perfectly fine-tuned for any adventure, from its signature paint scheme to the elegant upholstery, available in six colour schemes, and branded detailing.

The Brabus 1000 boasts a glass bridge with twin 12-inch monitors and a Panerai digital watch integrated into the Simrad user interface; an intelligent steering module with integrated controls; an open aft deck with bench; a multi-storage compartment; an SE60 bow thruster side-power; a high-fi entertainment system; and a fixed bow windlass with remote control.

However, customisation is the name of the game and options include wet bar and aft-cabin accommodation configurations, an extended sunbathing area, a bow table, an LED roof light bar in glossy black, an extended carbon fibre package, and an extended navigation package with two additional 9-inch screens, among many other additions, allowing owners to truly craft a uniquely styled and muscled vessel.
