“A peerless combination of practical Axopar underpinnings, lashings of sinister BRABUS glamour and performance to knock your socks off.”
– Jury statement, Motor Boat Awards 2022

The Motor Boat Awards are one of the most renowned international boating awards in the industry, held annually since 2007 by Motor Boat & Yachting. An expert jury is thoroughly testing hundreds of boats over months on rigorous sea trials to see how well the boats are meeting the market requirements and demands in relation to size, design and ability, and value for money – taking the boat buyer’s interests very close to heart.

Having the BRABUS Shadow 900 XC Cross Cabin take the win in the category SUV’s is a great achievement, underlining the origins of this confident and stylish performer. Fully living and breathing the BRABUS supercar DNA, the BRABUS Shadow 900 truly is the SUV of the sea and the “ultimate user-friendly superboat” with its confident “year-round fast cruising capability, incredible functionality and easy performance”, in the words of the judges.

 “The BRABUS Shadow 900 XC Cross Cabin is bringing out the best of both worlds, functionality and style of an Axopar fused with the strong presence of luxury, power and performance of a BRABUS product. We are so delighted that the jury has recognized what our close collaboration with the world leading supercar manufacturer is all about.”
