Limited edition Brabus Shadow 800 sold

ADVERTISEMENT

The first, limited edition Brabus Shadow 800 in North America has been sold, after the new high-performance day boat design was showcased at the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Hull No. 007, priced at $549,000, was sold through Fort Lauderdale-based Nautical Ventures, which reported that the owner would keep the boat at his Grand Cayman Island waterfront estate.

The Brabus Shadow 800 represents a collaboration between Finnish boat builder Axopar Boats Oy and German automotive firm Brabus Group. The series will include 20 hulls worldwide, with two slated for North America. Although owner personalization means that none of the 20 hulls will be exactly like another, according to Brabus, they all will feature the company’s signature color – gunmetal gray with red exterior seating – and performance engines with a power output of 800hp.
