BRABUS SHADOW 500 T-TOP

Best of both worlds combination of performance and comfort

NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION

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.

Axopar new owner customer review

Axopar 37 Customer testimonial Victoria

Axopar 37 Cabin Owner Robert loves “the internal cabin, the wide opening sunroof and sun lounge. The driving position is very comfortable… the Mercury Outboards run an economical cruising speed of 35kts and push the top speed to over 50kts,” adding. “We have a great relationship with Rowan and Peter… Eyachts are a great team, all staff are professional and courteous.”

Axopar 37 Customer Review

Is the Axopar 37 Diamond Quality?

The Diamonds love their Axopar’s, “Speed, comfort and amazing flexible fun and ability for overnighters… We love hanging out having fun on the water. Zooming out through the heads, but the adventure doesn’t stop there,” says Bec Diamond.
“The overall purchase, delivery, and handover experience with the team at Eyachts was nothing short of brilliant. 10/10.”

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.

Repeat Eyachts owner review

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 Eyachts 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.

Georgies 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.”

Axopar owner

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.”

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 Customer review Graeme

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”.

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.
