Manitowoc Marina LLC is pleased to announce their new partnership with BRABUS Marine to sell BRABUS Shadow boats. BRABUS Marine is the cutting-edge alliance between two of the most renowned companies in their respective genres. Bringing together the award-winning Finnish boat builder Axopar Boats and the long-established, high-performance luxury automotive car producer BRABUS, to redefine luxury day boating through a range of ultra-exclusive and exciting powerboats. BRABUS Marine focuses upon luxury products for global markets with strong ambitions to become one of the world’s most iconic boat brands.

BRABUS is currently offered in the Brabus Shadow 500 and Brabus Shadow 900, built upon the Axopar 28 and Axopar 37 hulls. Outstanding performance, power, and superior acceleration, together with easy handling and best-in-class drivability, forms the core of a BRABUS Shadow product.
