Recently, Cristian Ronaldo has made the decision to put his current Gulfstream G200 private jet up for sale due to it being too cramped for his family. In addition to this jet, CR7 also owns a Gulfstream G650 aircraft which comes with a price tag of up to $65 million and boasts luxurious features and modern amenities. Gulfstream is a popular aircraft manufacturer among many billionaires such as Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Kim Kardashian.
Famous football players such as David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Neymar all have their own private jets. However, only Cristiano Ronaldo owns the Gulfstream G650 which is valued at $65 million, making it the most expensive plane owned by a player in the world.
According to a report by Business Insider, the Gulfstream G650 is the largest and most spacious aircraft in its class. Its size is so impressive that even Ronaldo can fit the entire Juventus squad inside it.
The Gulfstream G650 boasts the largest cabin in its class, featuring four distinct areas for meetings, dining, relaxation, and entertainment. In the entertainment area, passengers can recline in a custom chair or catch up on the latest news via the 42-inch flat-screen TV. The G650’s handmade seats are designed with comfort in mind, providing stability for long journeys, and can be converted into beds for added versatility. With a capacity of 18 people and 2,950 kg of luggage, this aircraft has ample room for all your needs. Powered by two Rolls-Royce engines, the Gulfstream G650 can achieve speeds of up to 1,133 km/h, much faster than commercial aircraft, and fly up to 13,890 km without refueling.
The Gulfstream G650 is capable of flying non-stop from London to either New York or Beijing when traveling at full speed. However, when flying at a slower pace and with greater fuel efficiency, it can make non-stop flights to Buenos Aires and Los Angeles.
Gulfstream’s aerodynamic wings are designed to increase speed, range, and efficiency, while their fly-by-wire technology creates a smooth and comfortable flight experience. They have also developed advanced sound suppression techniques to enhance the cabin experience, making it possibly the quietest in its class. The plane features 16 large windows to take advantage of natural light and a clean air system that ensures passengers are always comfortable with fresh air. In general, Gulfstream’s aircraft, especially the G650 model, offer a top-notch flying experience.
Every 2-3 minutes, the ionization technology effectively eliminates allergens and viruses present in the cabin. Currently, there are 208 G650s in operation globally. The latest model has a price tag of $65 million, but if purchased used, it could be around $39 million.
The aircraft project won the prestigious 2014 Collier Trophy for its significant contribution in enhancing the aviation industry with technological advancements in aircraft performance, in-cabin comfort, and safety. At present, the aircraft has been discontinued as newer versions of the G650ER and G700 are now available.
The Gulfstream G650 can provide maximum comfort for Cristiano Ronaldo after long hours of intense competition. The Portuguese superstar can also enjoy partying with his relatives and friends during European tours.
