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. Tel: +44 (0)207 355 0980.

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
