Brabus Takes To The Water

The German after-market auto tuner launches a brutal black ops boat.

By Terry Christodoulou 22/05/2020

Brabus is renowned for its menacing Mercedes-Benz modifications – but the German aftermarket tuner’s reach isn’t restricted to land.

Enter the Brabus Shadow 900 Black Ops Boat – an extreme, limited-edition version of its already bonkers and award-winning Shadow 900.

It arrives boasting espionage-level specs such as dual 450-horsepower outboard engines, a top speed of 60 knots and class-leading power-to-weight ratio.

More likely, the 11.5-metre vessel will be used for skipping from beach-to-beach on sunny days – made comfortable by the luxurious front lounge in leather with queen size sleeping accommodation, gullwing doors for greater indoor/outdoor interaction and a generous level of tech to ensure a smooth ride.

If that’s not enough, there’s the option to tack on an aft cabin and wet bar – to which we say a firm ‘yes’ and ‘yes’.

Limited to just 37 units, it’s available in both ‘spyder’ or ‘sun-top’, with the ‘Black Ops’ featuring signature gunmetal grey paintwork and red accents (as pictured).

From approx. $680,000.
