The Brabus Shadow 800 is the Sports Sedan of the Open Sea
Brabus has made a big name for itself transforming ordinary Mercedes and AMG vehicles into extraordinary works with high-end materials and meticulous craftsmanship. Well, the German tuning company has turned its attention to the high seas with its latest partnership. Axopar is a quickly growing boat builder from Finland that creates custom-built center console yachts ranging from 24 to 37 feet long and with various cabin options.
The result is this – the Brabus Shadow 800.
It’s an ultra-modern take on Axopar’s 37-foot Sun Top yacht with a gunmetal gray, black, and red color scheme with a carbon fiber helm, marine-grade leather seats, and twin Mercury Verado 400R outboards kicking out 400 horsepower each.

Porsche’s Newest Vehicle Handles Like a Boat!
Porsche purists balked when their beloved sports car company began building SUVs. “Oh, the Cayenne will drive like a boat,” sang the collective cry. Well, now those purists can truly say Porsche’s latest product will drive like a boat – only they’ll be begging their bankers to find $16 million as they slip on a nautical-theme pashmina afghan and flippy floppies. Porsche has built a yacht.
Okay, so technically it was Porsche’s design arm, Studio F.A., which collaborated with the yachtbuilder Dynamiq to build a Porsche-inspired superyacht called the Dynamiq GTT 115. The Porsche-styled inspiration includes houndstooth patterns throughout the cabin, the GTT 115 lettering along the hull, and the vertical lines on the ship’s T-top above the upper deck recall those accenting the 911 Targa’s B-pillar. Studio F.A. goes so far as to say the GTT 115 even shares the 911’s lines and proportions. That’s more than a stretch, but what else do you expect from PR buzz?
Not surprisingly, Porsche picked a solid yachtbuilder to associate with. Dynamiq is known for its aluminum hulls and advanced designs. The GTT 115 is no exception. Hinted by its name, the superyacht is 115 feet long. It’s also 23 feet wide and takes slightly less than five feet of water to float. There’s room for at least 12 people to sleep, depending on how the customers configure their cabin. And speaking of customers, there will only be seven. Yep, Dynamiq and Studio F.A. are limiting their collaboration to seven yachts, each with a price tag of $16,7 million. While that’s not surprising, the GTT 115’s powertrain might be. Keep reading for that.
