Like the Axopar 37 but think it lacks a certain air of menace? The Brabus Shadow 800 has got you covered.
Designed in conjunction with German tuning house Brabus, the Shadow may be based on the 37 but it has been turned up to 11. Twin 400hp Mercury Racing engines give an easy 50-knot top speed and the ability to cruise at well over 40 knots. A bespoke hardtop sits over a cockpit festooned with gloriously lavish red upholstery and more carbon-fibre than the Mclaren parts bin. The ice-cool interior is finished in high-end quilted leather and there’s integrated infotainment throughout, including a compatible Garmin watch. Underpinning all of it is a sensational twinstepped hull that makes the Shadow 800 one of the finest point-to-point machines we’ve tested. CONTACT Brabus Marine London.

It’s not subtle but with 800hp and Axopar’s fabulous hull it’s a whole lot of fun Carbon fibre details abound on deck
