BRABUS SHADOW 500 T-TOP

Best of both worlds combination of performance and comfort 

With over 50 knots performance, insane acceleration and comfortable all day long cruising capability, this is the ultimate in the 30ft sports-weekender boating class.

The BRABUS Shadow 500 T-Top features a bold and comfortable design. Attractive, angular lines with a long, low-centre-of-gravity hull matched with three functional and versatile deck layout options for enjoying life to the fullest.

Built with Mercury Marine’s latest XS-Pro V8 FourStroke engines, it offers blindingly quick acceleration with a ‘kick in the back’ feeling, vice-like grip & handling, even from 40 knots fully loaded and with eight people on board. The BRABUS Shadow 500 design is underpinned by the successful Axopar 28 hull, with further optimised hydrodynamics and carbon-fibre reinforcing for even better overall performance and handling.

It is a stylish, superior boat, available in a choice of three, contemporary gelcoat colours and two different seat fabric colours, including Platinum Grey, White Grey and Glacier Blue, and two-seat fabric / sun pad cushion colours to choose from including BRABUS Red and BRABUS Cappuccino.

For the ultimate embodiment of luxury, the limited edition BRABUS Shadow 500 Black-Ops ‘1 of 28’ collection is hand-built with painstaking focus on precision and finish. The low-volume of boats produced of its kind will appeal to collectors and enthusiasts alike. This version is finished in Gunmetal Grey paint with BRABUS Red exterior seating.

The Shadow 500 T-Top is considered unique within this size range, and something that customers will find hard to replicate anywhere else.

Brabus Shadow 500 Australia 30ft speed boat

Axopar 37 Owner Story

“I love the speed, the stability and, being an accountant, the fuel economy. I have zipped all over Pittwater at 30 knots sipping only 80 litres an hour. Show me another 37 ft boat that gets anywhere near that!!! I have always loved the styling on the Axopar range, but it really was the new hull design on the 37 revolution that had me push the buy button,” said Andrew.

Greenline 40 to Axopar 28

Previously owning a Greenline 40 Hybrid for 8 years the Flemings were looking to downsize and found the perfect fit, the Axopar 28 Cabin.

Jon and Anne are already in love with their Axopar, it fulfils all their needs with the enclosed helm and how quiet and peaceful it is with the doors closed and retractable roof open. Jon talked about how well it rode at 25knots and the ease of steering with the 300hp Mercury Outboard.

Axopar Owner Review

3 Time Axopar Owner Review

Dave owned his 28 T-Top for only 6 short months before upgrading to a 37 Sun Top and now with a 28 Cabin, so I think it is safe to say he has a bit of experience with Axopars. We thought he would be the perfect person to talk to about the various models, likes, dislikes and the adventures they have taken him on.

Axopar 28 Review

Georgies Axopar 28 Review

Georgie found the Axopar 28′ despite its length a well designed boat that could easily be skippered single-handedly, claiming “The Axopar is so easy to handle I can head out at any time in any condition.” Georgie refers to her Axopar as a “Sexy sports car. A convertible with opening doors and roof which allow full control of the amount of sun and wind one experiences.”

Ebrokerage Greenline 33 Review by Cres James

“Dianna and I wish to say a very big thank you for your generous gift. We will enjoy the Moët on board… I would also like to express my thanks for your assistance, advice and guidance during the purchase and insurance process as well as to all your staff. It was an absolute pleasure to conduct business with you and all at Eyachts (Ebrokerage).”

The Wright kind of story

“We LOVE our boat, it’s been one of the best things that’s happened to us. With twin 300hp and antifoul we have comfortably gotten to 42kts.
We have communication with Eyachts and Brendon here in WA so we know if we ever needed anything we will be looked after, we really love our boat.”-Jasmyn.

Surf Ski Adventure On Axopar 37 Sun Top

Richard surf skiing owner – “The boat itself just offers so much versatility, it’s a great dayboat it’s a great family boat, we get to use 37ft not 7 ft, it’s versatility is what sold me and to do something like this is pretty unique and they’re a great offshore boat too so that’s important.”

Oh the places you’ll go on an Axopar 28

Owner Review by Jim After taking delivery of their new Axopar 28 T-Top in Sydney on Jim’s birthday last year, the Tsaganas family spent virtually every weekend and a full week in January on the boat clocking up about 70 running hours. They cruised, fished, tubed, wake...

Eyachts Review by Ian and Julianne

Axopar 28 owner Ian was extremely impressed by the Eyachts team and how helpful everyone was. “Well done Axopar and the eYachts team!”
“This boat is a winner for a (ok retired!) couple like us who want to have confidence in the manufacturer and dealer.”

Mark Richards Axopar 24

FASTEST AXOPAR EVER!!!

Mark Richards is known for wanting to go really fast. Having spent 22 years skippering Wild Oats and leading it to many 9 Sydney to Hobart wins, Ricko has supercharged his Axopar 24. “We hit 60 kts within 5 seconds of what felt like a Boeing 747 take off the team couldn’t stop smiling”.

Axopar 24 Review

Graeme – “The ride quality and finish were exceptional”. The 24 was his choice of Axopar due to greater ease of beach anchoring at Rottnest.
“I have had a number of sensational boating days. Nothing beats a two hour surf at Rottnest and then picking up 16 crays on the way home.”

Axopar 28 Customer Review by Ian and Julianne

Ian- “We remain very impressed with the stability and smoothness of the boat’s handling. Including tight turns in very choppy conditions.”
Julianne- “It is something of a magic carpet in terms of its stability and speed. The all-round visibility is sensational from within the very comfortable cabin”.

Dave O’Connor’s Axopar 28 T-Top Adventures!

“I don’t have to worry about the weather or conditions, I can take the Axopar out whenever I want… As the other boats slow down for the rough waves and wind, I’m able to maintain cruising at 30kts.”

Axopar 28 Customer Review

For Tim the Axopar 28 ticked a lot of boxes…
“The right boats bring people together and create great memories!” – Tim Davis.

Greenline 48 review

Greenline 48 FLY Customer Review with Peter Osborn

“Transitioning from sail to motor – love the displacement hull that enables me to cruise 10knots if I want or crank up to 20 +. Huge range and least expensive which is important for a yachtie. Massive wide and deep sidewalks…”

Axopar 28 T-Top Handover

Handover on our beautiful Sydney which started in the afternoon but everyone was have so much fun they were still going at dusk!

The new happy owner said “I just love it”!

Karl and Barb – Axopar Owners

“Karl and I could not believe how good a ride and how dry a ride in the conditions. Fabulous!”

Eyachts Team Review by John Bossi

Working with the team in Sydney was great… there were never problems, only solutions.
I found that across the board with everyone I was in contact with at Eyachts.
I’ve made a lot of purchases from dental equipment to motorcycles. I have never experienced a standard set so high across an organisation.

Axopar 28 – Hayden, Harry & Rosie

Hayden, Harry and Rosie pictured on handover day. They did a trip down the coast and stopped for a spot of whale watching. Harry said “I was extremely impressed with the way the boat handled on the trip offshore”.
