Unveiling Dwayne Johnson’s $65 Million ‘Flying Mansion’: A Look Inside the Extravagant Abode of the Hollywood Superstar
Not only is the plane fast, but it also boasts luxurious features such as a bed, kitchen, bar, bathroom, relaxing sofa with a TV screen, and a living room that rivals a 5-6 star standard. The customization of the plane creates an experience akin to traveling in a mansion through the clouds.
The Gulfstream G650, equipped with two Rolls-Royce engines and massive anti-slip brakes for short landing distances, can fly nearly 13,000 km without refueling. Not only renowned for its speed and long-range capabilities, the Gulfstream G650 is also known for its exceptional fuel efficiency and low emissions in the aviation industry.
With its intelligent design, the Gulfstream G650 can accommodate 18 passengers and 4 crew members. It can reach an altitude of 12,500m in just 22 minutes, keeping it above inclement weather and away from crowded commercial aircraft, as reported by Business Insider.
Additionally, the aircraft is equipped with state-of-the-art entertainment equipment, including high-speed WiFi, 3D radar, and capacitive touch screens for entertainment and work purposes. Gulfstream prioritizes acoustic research, creating a quiet atmosphere onboard their aircraft models, particularly the G650. According to Gulfstream, the cabin is designed to reduce the sensation of high altitude, making passengers feel as though they are at an altitude of only 1,500m, even when the plane has reached 15,000m.
Despite being in operation for just a decade, the G650 model and its variations have already seen over 300 units manufactured by Gulfstream. From Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, to tech mogul Elon Musk, from the late Steve Jobs to investor Mark Cuban from the American Shark Tank program, each of these notable individuals owns at least one Gulfstream jet.
The demand for the Gulfstream G650, the largest and most expensive civil aircraft available today, is so high that owners of these superjets are considering profiting from them. In some transactions, sellers have made profits ranging from $5 million to $7 million per sale. However, Gulfstream claims to be unaware of the details of these transfers.
“If our customers are indeed making a profit from these acquisitions, it further demonstrates the incredible capabilities of the G650,” said a Gulfstream representative. “The real challenge for the airline is that customers are attempting to sell planes even before taking delivery.”
Gulfstream ensures that customers cannot resell the planes until they have been delivered, aiming to prevent speculation, which is detrimental to the market. The company includes a clause in the contract that prohibits plane owners from transferring ownership for a certain period after signing. Some customers have tried to circumvent this provision by purchasing planes under the name of a new airline and subsequently selling them as part of a business deal.
